Kenyan centre-back Clyde Seneji on Tuesday put a pen on paper to a two-year extension contract with the quadruple winners FCB Nyasa Big Bullets following his current contract which will expire next month.
The 27-year-old Saneji has been nominated as one of the 2023 best defenders of the season after joining the people’s team at the start of the 2023 season and featured in all four CAF champions league matches played in the 2023 campaign.
Clyde Senaji Nevade is the fourth player to extend his contract with FCB Nyasa Bullets head coach Kalisto Pasuwa’s side after Ephraim Kondowe, Anthony Mfune, and Precious Phiri also dedicated their loyalty to the people’s team until 2027.
Speaking with Malawi News Agency on Tuesday, Senaji said it was an easy decision for him to make the extension because he had a good season at the club where they claimed everything and he is looking forward to do better in the 2024 season.
“Am a person who is open to new ideas, I have had a good season and time here at the club so I decided to buy some more time and am looking forward to do well in the coming season since I know more teams have prepared for us,” he said.
He added that his strong bond with the people’s team and everybody associated with his club also convinced him to have some more time with the club and was well prepared to handle the pressure coming from their competitors.
In a separate interview, FCB Nyasa Big Bullets head coach, Kalisto Pasuwa said extension is what everyone at the club was waiting for, saying Saneji’s expertise will see Bullets achieving more.
“I appreciated the decision that Saneji has made. This will help the team achieve even more. We are trying our best to have a strong bond with the players for the betterment of the next season,” said Pasuwa.
