Simba Sport Club will continue to miss the services of it's Rwandan midfielder, Haruna Niyonzima for the rest of the season due to his ongoing battle with a knee injury.

Niyonzima revealed in an interview with Goal that his condition has not improved and the team's doctors have asked him to take a rest from weekly action so that he completely recover. 

"The truth is, I still have a problem with the knee and I have tried to get back to the field but I felt pain, now the doctors have advised me to relax for a while so that I can get well," said Niyonzima.

The midfielder was not part of the Simba squad which participated in the recently concluded  Mapinduzi Cup due to his current injuries.

This is the first season for Niyonzima with Simba, the team he joined from their arch rivals Yanga in the summer.
