Saidi and Razak have been playing together regularly in the Burundi national team, where due to their great potential they have been playing together regularly.
“It’s been a long time since I’ve been close to Razak and we’ve been playing together in the Burundi national team squad, so I know he’s a top player and I feel happy to have the opportunity to play with him at Yanga,” Ntibazonkiza said as quoted by Sokalabongo.
“I believe we will show great potential together to help Yanga achieve its targets for the season, including winning the league title and the domestic Cup.”
Meanwhile, Yanga have once again come out to deny reports their Angolan player Carlos Carlinhos will leave the club before the end of his contract.

“Carlinhos, when he landed in Yanga, signed a one-and-a-half-year contract to serve the club, so this is the first time he has served half a year, remaining for a whole year to continue playing and we hope to see him continue to play for Yanga,” Said told Sokalabongo.
“What’s worse for him is the injuries he has been getting, but he is one of the best players we have in our team and we as leaders believe in the second round of the league, he will do great things and that is why we still have trust him to help us.”
Yanga have set the target of wrestling the league title from rivals Simba SC and are currently in position one on the 18-team table with 44 points from 18 matches.
