Early career[edit]

Ronan was born in Magé (Brazilian state of Rio de Janeiro) and began his career in Cruzeiro. [1]

Citizen AA (2007–2008)[edit]

In August 2007, Hong Kong club Citizen AA signed Ronan on loan from Friburguense until the end of the season. He was given the number 2 shirt and became the first Equatoguinean player to play in Hong Kong First Division League. On 16 September 2007, Ronan made his official debut for Citizen in a 4-0 win over Rangers in a First Division match at Mong Kok Stadium.

While Ronan play as a left back for his national team, he has been mainly used as a centre back at Citizen. He has also played in the left midfield position due to injuries in his team's attacking line.[2] On 29 March 2008, Ronan scored his first goal for Citizen with a header, helping the team to a 1-0 victory over Kitchee SC in the First Division. He subsequently scored another goal from a penalty kick on 5 April 2008 to help Citizen to come back to win 2-1 against South China AA. He then scored from another penalty kick in a 2-4 defeat to Eastern AA on 13 April 2008, taking his tally for the season to 3.

Ronan missed the FA Cup 2007–08 final after being sent off in the semi-final against Eastern AA on 5 May 2008 for receiving two yellow cards. In the final, Citizen went on to win the cup with a 2-0 win over Wofoo Tai Po.

Germany[edit]

On 01. July 2009 signed with German Verbandsliga Sachsen-Anhalt club Lok Stendal.[3]

International career[edit]

Ronan made his Equatorial Guinea national team debut on 26 February 2006 in a friendly match against Benin in Cotonou. That day the National Nzalang (the nickname of Equatorial Guinea national football team) won by 1-0.[1] On 1 June 2008, he scored the first goal in a 2-0 victory over Sierra Leone.

Ronan also played some friendly matches of category B between 2005 (vs. the team of Pará de Minas)[4] and 2007 (vs. the Region of Murcia and Extremadura)[5][6] and two in 2011 (vs. the French sides RSC Monteuil and FC Issy-les-Moulineaux).[7]
