Horoya refused to release information about the duration of his recovery period.
In good faith, the Guinean team extended its contract to offer him more certainty.
The 34-year-old contract was due to end this year, but the club wanted & # 39; to secure its immediate future by renewing its three-year contract from today (April 14). & # 39;
Horoya & # 39; s owner Antonio Souare has also offered Ndiaye a role at the club as part of future technical staff and will pay for his training in Europe.
