Tanzanian goalkeeper David Kisu Mapigano has left Kenyan Premier League club Gor Mahia on a mutual agreement for Azam FC.
Mapigano joined Gor Mahia in July 209 and at some point was the preferred to be the man between the sticks; the club having had the duo of Boniface Oluoch and Peter Odhiambo as his competitors.
Confirming the new development to the club’s website was Chairman Ambrose Rachier who said: “Goalkeeper Mapigano (Robert) wrote a letter to the club requesting to leave and we agreed to that request allowing him to pursue his interest in Tanzania.”
Mapigano had earlier threatened that he won't feature for the cub until all his wages were paid by the club and reports are emerging that the club is in talks with Western Stima keeper Simon Njau.
While not revealing the name, Rachier further confirmed that they were already in search of Mapigano’s replacement: “We are talking to another local goalkeeper and hopefully we finalise the talks to have him on board as a replacement for Mapigano.”
Gor Mahia has already roped in the services of goalkeeper Levis Opiyo from Nairobi City Stars in what is believed to be a replacement for Fredrick Opiyo who also left the club and is said to be on his way to Wazito FC.
The keeper was then confirmed at Azam with the club releasing pictures of him undergoing medical tests at the club on Thursday.
