Gor Mahia striker Francis Mustapha received a warm reception back home since his transfer move to Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia.
The Burundian striker, who penned a long-term deal with the reigning Kenyan champions, brought business to a standstill at the Bujumbura Airport after he was received by a dozen of family members on his first return to his home country since he signed for K'Ogalo in June.
The family members were led by Mustapha’s mother as they danced and sung to the top of their voices in a homecoming celebration.
“I cannot believe I am now seeing you play continental matches for that big team on TV,” Mustafa’s mum was quoted by the Nairobinews.
The 21-year-old later led his family out of the domestic arrival area holding a banquet of flowers he received from an unidentified lady.
Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr had previously told Goal that Mustapha traveled to Burundi to sort out his traveling documents.
