FORMER Yanga striker, Ditram Nchimbi, has revealed the reasons for his failure to be a regular striker in the outfit as pressure from supporters and the lack of opportunity to play regularly.

Nchimbi joined Yanga in the 2019/20 season and, within that season, he scored two goals and executed three assists for his team.

In the following season, he scored one goal and executed three assists, and this season he has neither scored nor provided assists.

The former Njombe Mji striker's contract with Yanga expired earlier this month and he already left and joined Geita Gold FC, a side he will start serving next year as now he is currently on holiday.

The striker said he is in Tunduru, Ruvuma for a short holiday before joining his new team and he is currently enjoying life. Regarding football, Nchimbi stated he still has time to continue playing.

After leaving Yanga, Nchimbi has joined the NBC Premier League club, Geita Gold FC, on a one-year contract.

The former Azam FC, Mwadui FC, and Polisi Tanzania attacker left Yanga after his contract expired.

The Jangwani Street outfit's management did not show any interest in extending his contract as he did not have a major role in the squad which is coached by Tunisian Nasredinne Nabi.

Commenting on the deal, Geita Gold FC Secretary-General, Revinus Ntare, said they have signed the striker on a one-year contract, hinting the footballer is expected to join the squad after one month.

He said the goal was to add strength to their attacking line-up led by Juma Mahadhi, Salim Aiyee, and Danny Lyanga, who have not shown an edge in their five matches this season having scored just two goals in five matches.

"It is true that we have signed Nchimbi on a one-year contract. He will join the team after the mini transfer window, the registration is good for a team that has not had shown any threat to the opposition teams."
