Football duo Abdoulie Mansally and Sanna Nyassi have agreed to put pen-to-paper on renewed terms offered to them by their clubs.
Mansally, who at close of last season was voted humanitarian of the year by club supporters for second time running, is among seven players handed contract extensions.
The players are re-signed for their immense contributions last season that has seen the club thrive somewhat at domestic and boom massively in the Concacf Champions League.
25-year-old Mansally has played a combined nineteen games featuring at left-back, higher than his manageable eleven in 2014.
Countryman SannaNyassi is also rewarded with a new contract by San Jose Earthquake of the Major League Soccer following his combined twenty-eight game –nineteen of those from the starting lineup.
The winger has been terrific for the Quakes and the Gambia national team.
When all resumes, Mansally will be the more busier than any Gambian player in the US with his club due to face Mexican giants UANL Tigres in the quarterfinal round of the Concacaf Champions League.
Off the pitch, the former Real de Banjul man has been garnering rave reviews for helping pay for a young Gambian girl’s surgery, forking out bags of rice to the underprivileged and jerseys to the Gambian communities through his Mansally Foundation.
