“It was never ever an easy decision to leave Sassuolo because the club has been like a family to me. It was the first professional club I joined,” Chibsah told

“I have integrated in the Benevento team so well good and it is great that I continue as I want to work more harder for the club,”

“I am hoping to have a great season and be able to help Benevento secure a permanent stay in the Serie A,”
