Rwandan international Jacques Tuyisenge has committed his future to 16-time Kenyan Premier League champions ending his speculated move to Rwandan side APR Fc.
The lethal forward who joined Gor Mahia in January last year for Rwf 32.8m from Rwandan side Police Fc told Kenyan media house, Capital Sport on Wednesday that contract talks with the club’s management are looking up and he will still be part of the club next season.
“We have been talking with management and primarily, there is an agreement. They have listened to my terms and I think I have already made up my mind that I will stay. I have enjoyed being here and now that we are in the Champions League next year, it hasn’t been a hard decision to make,” He said.
Tuyisenge’s form has been a huge pillar in Gor Mahia’s title winning run this season, having scored 12 goals and set up one. Rwandan giants APR Fc have been trailing him to boost their title ambitions in the on-going Azam Rwanda Premier League and next year’s CAF Confederations Cup.
Tuyisenge also expressed delight at playing continental football for the third time in his career having already featured twice with Police FC in Rwanda.
“Last year, we failed to win the league and I wasn’t very pleased. We worked hard this year as a team and we finally got it. This is done, now onto the next project. I am confident we can get to the group stages,” Tuyisenge opined.
With CAF increasing the number of teams in the Group Stages to 16, Gor Mahia will only need to win two home and away matches to make it to the Group Stages, commonly referred to as the ‘money bracket’ of continental football.
