Alagie Nyabally recalled from Tusker loan

Real de Banjul Football Club can confirm that goalkeeper Alagie Nyabally has been recalled from his loan with Tusker FC.

The 24-year-old Gambia international, who moved to Kenya with the Premier League side, made a handful of appearances for the Nairobi club last season but a change of coaching staff this season has seen him fall down the pecking order under the new club coach, Paul Nkata.

His three-year loan agreement spell has now been cut short and has returned to Real de Banjul together with teammate and compatriot, Matarr Nyan, from the three Kenyan Cup championship winners.

President William Abraham explained to www.realdebanjul.gm: “Alagie Nyabally’s loan recall is actually a good option for all of us because we need him in our team.”

He added: “It made no sense to allow him to be there to continue to serve the agreement period without playing hence the new coach came with his own goalkeeper, so it was wise to reach a mutual agreement with Tusker and have him come back to us.”

Nyabally, who captained the club last season after Bubacarr Sanneh’s departure to AC Horsens, has since resumed duties with the City Boys.
