Burundian Striker Fiston Razak Completes Move To Egyptian Side
Former JS Kabilye and Mamelodi Sundowns striker Fiston Abdul Razak has signed with Egyptian Premier League side ENPPI.
Former JS Kabylie and Mamelodi Sundowns striker Fiston Abdul Razak has signed with Egyptian Premier League side ENPPI.
Fiston, 26, left Kabylie “by mutual agreement” in July after scoring seven goals since joining the Algerian top-flight side in August 2018.
The Burundi international has signed a three-year deal, with the option of a fourth, and is available for Saturday’s game against champions Pyramids.
Several high profile African clubs had been salivating for the Burundian’s thunderous right foot, but ENPPI made a personal intervention to secure the forward’s signature at an undisclosed fee.
A section of media reports, however, indicate that Kabylie still hold control over the player with a claim that his contract will run out 2021.
Other reports indicate that the club has not issued a release letter, neither has there been a request for an International Transfer Certificate (ITC), as is the norm for such a transfer.
Fiston started his professional football career at Lydia Ludic, joining straight from high school. He later joined Rayon Sports in Rwanda in 2012 before moving to DRC Congo to join Diable Noirs which plays in the fourth tier in 2018.
He impressed and was soon snapped up by Kenya Premier League side Sofapaka and later moved to South Africa where he signed for Mamelodi Sundowns.
Fiston is capped 37 times by Burundi, scoring 17 goals and was a part of their squad in the recent Africa Cup of Nations, which was the first time for the Central African nation.
