Gor Mahia chairman Ambrose Rachier on Tuesday led members of his technical staff to defender Karim Nizigiyimana’s house to present him with the 2017 SportPesa Premier League trophy and his personal medal.
The Burundian right back was at his Nairobi West home recuperating from an ankle injury.
“As a result of the deplorable state of Thika Stadium, our player was very badly injured two minutes into the match. We’ve through our own efforts taken him for surgery and he is in the process of recovery.
“It’s because of the injury that he missed the coronation. He remains our player no matter how long he will take to recover. We shall be paying his full salary and also make sure he is well maintained,” Mr Rachier said.
The player had missed the last five games of the season.
