Abdoul-Mubarak Aigba, who participated at the just concluded Africa Nations Championship with Togo has joined Kenyan club Safapaka.
The goalkeeper who leaves AS OTR Football Club has signed a two-year contract with the Kenyan outfit. Safapaka currently plays in the Kenyan Premier League, the Elite football championship in the country.
“I am so delighted to join this great club. I feel ready to start and deliver. I look forward to a good stay and better days to come with the club,” Mubarak said as he signed his contract.
It was a mixed performance from Mubarak at the CHAN and for his Togolese side as a whole. Housed in Group C with eventual champions Morocco, Rwanda and Uganda, Togo succeeded in getting just three points in three games played, going out at the group stage of the CHAN.
The team did pick up a 2-1 win against Uganda on matchday two but lost the other matches, with Mubarak in the sticks for the team.
“At last I can now relax, it has been a long fight, I have followed and tried to sign Aigba and I want to thank God, he has now arrived home,” The 2009 league champions’ President Elly Kalekwa told Goal on Monday.
“It was a fight getting his services, several clubs were eyeing his services and it was not an easy task to lure him to sign, to be honest, his transfer reminded me of the day I was signing Fiston Abdul Razak, how I fought to get his services, it was a real fight, it has never happened to me for a while now and I am happy he has finally signed for us, straight for the Chan tournament.
Safapaka currently sits on the tenth position in the league and will hope that the addition of Mubarak Aigba will boost the team and lead them towards achieving their said objectives.
