Akanji joined Sliema Wanderers from Julius Berger in August, 2001, and he aspired to make an impression and rapidly travel to a better club in a more significant European league. He was one of the best goalkeepers in the Maltese Premier League throughout his time with the club, although he often mixed flashes of brilliance with beginners' mistakes, making consistency his main flaw. In both 2005–06 and 2006–07 Akanji won the Best Goalkeeper Award.
