Karim Nizigiyimana has resumed training with Gor Mahia a week after he was shown the exit door.

The Burundian defender was among the players, who trained at Camp Toyoyo under the watchful eyes of coach Hassan Oktay and his assistant Zedekiah ‘Zico’ Otieno as they prepare to face Zoo Kericho in a league match on Wednesday.

Goal.com photographer captured Nizigiyimana in high spirits as he was taken through the paces. The defender is yet to feature for the club this season, after he was released despite his contract set to end in January.

His purported exit from K’Ogalo triggered interest from a host of Kenyan clubs led by rivals AFC Leopards Sofapaka, Tusker and Bandari. Efforts by Goal to get a reason why he trained with the Kenyan champions proved futile.

Gor Mahia are also scheduled to take on Lobi Stars of Nigeria in the first round of Caf Champions League on Sunday.
