After Tanzanian winger Mrisho Khalfan Ngassa threw away a lucrative deal to join Sudanese Champions El-Mereikh from Simba SC, the Sudanese side has picked out Burundian skipper and former APR man Selemani Ndikumana to take his place.
Ndikumana was unveiled by El-Mereikh late last week. Ngassa had been approached by the Sudanese side to join them after the Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup but he threw away the chance especially after fighting between his mother team Azam and Simba SC, where he was playing on loan.
El-Mereikh was ready to spill money to earn the signature of the highly talented talisman paying a signing fee of 150,000 USDs to Simba while Ngassa himself getting 100,000 USDs and a salary of 5,000 USDs per month.
However, Ngassa threw away that offer sticking to his 111,000 Shillings per month salary at Simba.
Selemani skippered Burundi in the Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup where they were bundled out in the Quarter finals by Zanzibar. He was previously with Rwandese side APR before his contract was terminated.
