Responsibility inspires Tuyisenge

20 May 2016, 16:03

Nairobi - Gor Mahia marksman Jacques Tuyisenge says he is confident of living up to expectations as the most expensive player in Kenya Premier League history.

Tuyisenge signed from Rwandan side Police FC in the off-season, but has battled with a knee injury.

The 24-year-old striker says he has no problem with the responsibility on his shoulders, but says the injury has curtailed his progress to an extent.

"I enjoy the responsibility of being Gor's lead striker and this makes me push myself more," Tuyisenge told the KPL website.

"My right knee has a problem. I occasionally feel pain when I am running. I think if it was not for the high expectations, I would not be pushing myself this hard.

"But that is the life of a football player at this level. I don't want to let Gor down because the fans are just great. I want to make sure I give my best in every game."

Five goals in recent weeks since his return to the team do, however, show that the Rwandan could prove to be worth the money GK'Ogalo paid for his services.

"It felt really bad at the beginning of the season when the team was struggling yet I was not able to help because of my knee injury," Tuyisenge elaborated.

"In fact I wanted to come in earlier but the doctors refused. It really ate inside me and I felt bad. I even felt guilty that I was not saving the club and I was not giving them their money's worth yet I have the abilities."
