First pro title for Ouskeh


By Sulayman Bah Foreign-based player Yusupha Njie dubbed ‘Ouskeh’ yesterday afternoon clinched his first professional career medal. The 19-year-old seen right flaunting the title, played a part in his Moroccan club FUS Rabat’s thrashing of RSB Berkane at the Prince MoulayAbdellah Sports Complex. He came close to adding more mysteries for the opposing team but his blast hit the woodwork. Mohamed Nahiri earlier opened the score via a free-kick a minute from break before Mourad Batna doubled the score in the 48th minute which proved wholly sufficient and confirmed Ouskeh and his capital-based victors of the 56th edition of the competition. The title scoop confirms the club of a place in the CAF Confederations Cup. Yusupha, son to Gambia football legend Biri-Biri Njie and sibling to Gambia international Tijan Jaiteh, joined the Moroccan outfit from local Gambian club Real de Banjul on an undisclosed sum. He caught the fancy of FUS while starring for RDB in the CAF Champions League.      ]]>
