Ryan Giggs’ Club Extend Gambian Left-back Touray’s Contract


By Sulayman Bah

Former Manchester United greats, Ryan Giggs and his likes have renewed the contract of Gambia’s Ibou Touray.

Touray joined the side from Nantwich Town in 2017, helping them gain promotion to the English fourth tier, three divisions below the Premier League.

A former Everton FC graduate, Ibou’s deal would have elapsed this June.

Due to the current global crisis triggered by the pandemic, club owners are trimming down players and operating a slimmer budget.

In a clear out seeing eleven out of 22 players released, the 26-year-old scorpion is one of those to have had his deal extended at least until end of the 2020-2021 football season.

Born in the UK to a Gambian parent, the defender switched his allegiance to play for Gambia in 2016 under Sang Ndong’s stewardship.
