Harambee Stars defender Yusuf Mainge is hopeful that he will land a permanent deal with Slovakia top-flight side FK Pohronie.
Mainge has been in the country for the better part of the year after his loan deal with the club elapsed and his situation has not been helped with the coronavirus pandemic that is currently sweeping the world.
As quoted by Pepeta, Mainge said he is still a player at AFC Leopards and had expected to return to Slovakia to prove himself further before the virus struck.
“I had a six months’ loan deal with them (Pohronie) and it has elapsed. I came back early since my VISA had expired and was here for renewal. When that was done and was ready to depart, the virus struck and it meant that I remain here.
“I’m still in the books of AFC Leopards and I was keeping fit with them before the break. I hope I did well and I’m confident that I’ll be back once everything has settled,” the right-back said.
Mainge who joined Leopards straight from school had moved to Slovakia in September 2019 on a six months’ loan deal; his deal having expired in March 2020.
He had expected to make the move a permanent one after being a regular in the team but a return saw him train with Leopards for some time before the break caused by the virus.
