After leaving relegated Super League 1 side Ionikos, Romao joined AKFC in July 2023.
A France-born Togo international, Romao has made 313 career appearances in Ligue 1 with Grenoble, Lorient, Marseille, and Reims and 82 career appearances in Super League 1 with Olympiacos and Ionikos, plus 27 career appearances in the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League between Marseille and Olympiacos.
