“I think he needs to be playing week in week out so that he can be at his best, that, as it is now, he is not having too much game time which has affected his performance that is why his performance seems to have gone down,” added Numba.

“But I think we’ll try and see if it can be possible to bring him back here so that we can help him resuscitate his career.”
