Scans on the player have now confirmed that Nizigiyimana had a torn Achilles tendon on his right foot that required surgery. On Thursday, the player underwent a successful surgery to repair the leg at a Nairobi Hospital and has now been ruled out for the rest of the season.

A source within the club told Goal, “Karim will not be involved in remaining two matches. He has undergone surgery and doctors have suggested that the earliest he can return is after three months.

“We expect him (Karim) to resume training in February. That is the earliest he can kick the ball. We wish him a quick recovery.”
