Masika elated with Leopards extension

Nairobi - Eric Masika is delighted to extend his contract at AFC Leopards.
The defender joined the club in the 2012 season from arch-rivals Gor Mahia in what was then a record breaking deal but has had a mixed stay at the den.
He played a huge role in the 2012 season but fell out of favour and form in 2013, making a handful of appearances and was rumoured to be on the verge of an exit from the club.
He has however landed a one year extension to his deal which according to him is great news.
" I am delighted to be a part of this great club for another one year, he said.
" There were many stories that I would leave the club but it has never been like that and I have always wanted to play longer for this club.
" Last year was not the best for me but I have worked hard this year and hope to make more of an impact come the new season, he added.
He will fight it out in central defence with a number of established players like Anthony Kimani, Joseph Shikokoti, Jackson Saleh and James Situma.
