Moroccan tactician Adil Erradi has said that he is excited for APR’s signing of forward Jacques Tuyisenge and looks forward to work with him next season.

The 28-year old was unveiled as the club’s latest arrival on Friday.


Following his signing, which ended weeks of speculations around the player’s future, a visibly excited Erradi spoke highly of Tuyisenge’s strength and value he brings to the club.


“Tuyisenge is a very skilled center-forward, he is quick and strong with aerial balls. He is also good at game-reading, and that combination makes him a great asset to our ambitions for next season,” he said.


“He might need time to settle in the team, but I strongly believe he will be one of the best players in the league after he gels with his teammates on and off the field, which I think he’ll not find very difficult,” Erradi added.

Erradi, who led APR to their record-extending 18th league title unbeaten last season, has been tasked to guide the army side, at least, to the quarter-finals of the Caf Champions League in the upcoming 2020/21 campaign.

In a separate interview, Tuyisenge noted that, “APR is a club that every player would wish to play for and I am very happy for this opportunity. I will do my best to bring success to the team and fans.”

“I will not disappoint the faith the club put in me.”
