KIGALI, Rwanda, July 15 – AFC Leopards new signing Emmanuel Imanishimwe has been reported to the Football Association of Rwanda (FERWAFA) by Rayon Sport after signing for three different clubs.

The Rwandese left back signed a contract extension with Rayon Sport then signed a contract with AFC Leopards and further put pen to paper on a deal with Rayon’s arch rivals Armie Patriotic Rwandaise (APR).

“Things are thick for him because he got Sh581, 906 (Rwf 4.5mn) from Rayon to extend his contract and Sh1, 034,501 (Rwf800, 000,000) to sign a two-year contract with APR. Rayon have brought the matter to FERWAFA and the Competitions Committee will sit down and make a decision. But it is likely he will face a ban because that is unacceptable,” A source from Rwanda told Capital Sport.

Imanishimwe had been expected to join AFC Leopards next week and his former coach at Rayon Sport now with Leopards Ivan Minnaert is equally disappointed with the player.

Olivier Gakwaya, the Rayon Sport Secretary General had posted a photo on his official twitter feed on Thursday, showing Imanishimwe signing a contract with the caption “Deal done right now. It’s just a beginning.”

“This is a very weird thing and I don’t understand him. I was expecting him next week with Diarra (Ismaila) but now with the situation I don’t think he is coming. It is difficult and disappointing,” Minnaert told Capital Sport.

The Belgian tactician had banked on the arrival of the left-back to spur his side in the second leg and in both matches they have played thus far, the coach had used Cresten Mwanzo as a patch up defender on the left anticipating Imanishimwe’s arrival.

Minnaert has however said Malian striker Diarra whose contract with Rayon ended last month is expected in the country next week to join his compatriot Moussa Sissoko who arrived on Wednesday and has been training with the 13-time league champions.
