Ndayisaba: It was painful leaving AFC Leopards’

Ndayisaba, who was a record signing for Ingwe in January transfer, reveals to Goal that he will make a comeback to Kenyan league soon

Former AFC Leopards’ midfielder Floribert Tambwe Ndayisaba has candidly revealed that it was painful leaving the den after only six months but says he will make a comeback to the Kenyan league which he describes as the best in the region.

Ndayisaba, who is currently plying his trade with Democratic Republic of Congo Division One side Shark 11, has told Goal that he wants to work hard and regain his form before returning to Kenya.

“It was painful being dropped from AFC because I intended to make a good comeback after failing to adapt quickly. However, as a footballer, you always have to be ready to accept the outcome of circumstances, learn to move on and bounce back in a big way.”

Ndayisaba was a major signing for AFC Leopards in January, the most expensive in the club’s history after Ingwe coughed up Sh1.8 million to get his services from Rwanda.

He however, failed to meet the cut after the high profile signing and he ended up being dropped by coach Luc Eymael when the axe fell on seven players in June.

“I am focusing on keeping fit and getting my form back. I signed a short term contract here in Kinshasa because I want to return and play in Kenyan Premier League. I liked the league because of the nature of its competition as well as the organization. It is an interesting place to play in.”

Ndayisaba does not rule out playing for AFC Leopards’ again but also states that he is ready to play for any team. “There are a few teams which are interested though I would not like to name any of them. I will not refuse going back to Leopards’ if they give me a second chance as well.”
