FCB Nyasa Big Bullets defender Clyde Senaji says he is happy with how things have worked out since he arrived at The People’s Team.
The 26-year-old Kenyan centre-back joined Bullets in February after undergoing a successful trial during the pre-season and has hit the ground running after making his debut for the club during the International Bonanza in March.
Senaji has only missed one of the four Super League matches due to a knock he suffered before last week’s trip away to Extreme FC and he shared what it has been like to establish himself in Kalisto Pasuwa’s starting XI.
“I think the experience has been good and we have a good team. I haven’t struggled to get into the starting XI and I am happy with how things have worked for me since my arrival in February,” he said after putting in a solid performance during our 3-1 victory over Moyale Barracks on Saturday.
“I have had a good time here because I have adapted well to the system as I pushed so hard to be part of this team. I am very happy with my contribution. I must thank the coaches and everyone for showing faith in me and I am looking forward to more from myself and my teammates.”
On his ambitions with his new team, he said: “I am playing for Bullets, a winning club, so as part of the squad we just need to keep on winning. That’s my dream, and that’s our dream as a team.
“Bullets is a big team that will offer me an opportunity to showcase my talent and see how it goes because it’s every player’s dream to go far with football and I feel like I am at the right club that will help to further my career.”
The defender won 14 duels and completed more passes than any other defender against Moyale on Saturday afternoon.
He was also timely with his defensive display, keeping Raphael Phiri and Gastin Simkonda in the pockets to safeguard Bullets’ passage to another well-deserved victory.
He is one of Pasuwa’s trusted soldiers in the defence with his leadership inside the field of play and says he cannot wait to play in the CAF Champions League with the club.
“The team has ambitions; we have set goals that we need to achieve and the [CAF] Champions League is one of them. [As players] we [must] have the courage to go there and demonstrate that we are ready.”
