Gambia’s Yususpha Njie Shuns Spain and Turkey to Join Portuguese Club

Gambian youngster Yususpha Njie has shunned offers from Spain and Turkey to join a club in Portugal.

Njie has been watched by a long list of clubs while with Morocco club Faith Union Sport but did not hesitate to accept Boavista’s deal immediately the Porto-based club tabled a season-long loan offer.

“There were many offers from Spain, Turkey, Ukraine, Egypt, and Tunisia but the Portuguese team was following me in our last matches in the CAF Confederation Cup and they were fast about everything that they wanted me to join them next season with an option of an extended contract,” he told Ducor Sports from Morocco.

he added.

The Gambia international hails from a football family. His father, Biri Biri Njie, is a legend in La Liga’s Sevilla FC and his brother is a fellow international playing Qatar’s top division.

The 23-year-old’s deal will see him follow in the same footsteps and views his loan transfer to Boavista as a stepping stone to reach the top.

Njie who turned professional in the summer of 2012, guided FUS Rabat to the Moroccan Botola League title last season for the first time in 70 years.

The skillful forward will join his new teammates when the new campaign starts but for now, he has to see out his deal with Rabat and hopes to play a big part in the club’s today’s CAF Confederation Cup game.
