NEWLY-SIGNED striker Didier Kavumbagu has sent strong warning to Yanga's rivals ahead of the new Premier League campaign, saying he is a big match-winner.
Kavumbagu has joined Tom Saintfiet's demolition gang from Atletico of Burundi on a two-year deal as the CECAFA Kagame Cup winners seek their striking force, which already boasts the likes of Said Bahanuz, Hamis Kiiza and Jerryson Tegete.
Speaking to the 'Daily News,' the Burundian hit-man was in an optimistic mood, saying that he would shoot down Yanga's archrivals Simba when the two teams face off in the league and other competitions.
He boasted that he has the knack of scoring in big games for club and national team and is looking forward to continue his exploits against Simba and eventually make the name for himself at his new club. Kavumbagu, who can play across the forward line, said he was aware of the rivalry that existed between Yanga and Simba since his childhood and for him it would be great to score against their nemesis.
Kavumbagu was unveiled to journalists by the Yanga's Information Officer, Louis Sendeu on Saturday and was given no. 21 jersey.
After the official introduction, the player joined his colleagues for a training session at the Loyola Secondary Schools ground in the city where they are preparing for the Mainland Premier League kicking off next month.
Yanga coach Saintfiet spoke highly of the new strikerÕs qualities saying; ÒDidier is a great player and a great striker. His combination with Hamisi Kiiza and Said Bahanuz will be a powerful partnership. Kavumbagu caught the eye of the Belgian Coach after scoring a brace against them in their opening CECAFA encounter.
Saintfiet also hinted that they are looking to sign one more foreign player as they seek to complete the transfer business. 'We have only one slot remaining for an international player. We have several on our radar and we are scrutinizing each of them and their abilities to see who will best suite our needs.
