Azam have officially triggered extension clauses in both Daniel Amoah and Malickou Ndoye’s contracts, tying them down to the club until 2025.

The duo would have been free to open pre-contract talks with other clubs from January 1 had the clauses not been activated before the turn of the year.

Azam FC’s statement  said; “Our talented centre-back, Daniel Amoah, has signed a new one-year contract to remain in our club. The contract will keep him at the Azam Complex until 2025.”

Amoah, one of the best central defenders in the NBC Premier League, signed for Azam in August 2016, from Medeama FC of Ghana, going on to play for seven consecutive seasons at Chamazi.

Following the departure of Bruce Kangwa, Amoah is now the longest serving foreign player in the Tanzania Mainland Premier League. His biggest success in Azam colours has been lifting the Federation Cup Cup in 2019 when they beat Lipuli 1-0 in Lindi.

Last season he made 25 league appearances and scored two goals including an equaliser against Young Africans in a game that ended 2-2 at National Stadium in September, 2022. He also helped Azam reach the Federation Cup final where they lost 1-0 to defending champions Young Africans.

On Ndoye, the 24-year old senegalese centre back was signed at the start of the 2022/23 campaign from Tengeuth. He struggled with injuries in his first season, limited to only nine league appearances throughout the campaign.

His contract extension unites him with his former coach at Teungueth FC, Yousouf Dabo who has been tasked with reviving Azam’s fortune ahead of next season following back to back disappointing campaigns.

The duo brings the number of contract renewals at Azam to five players following in the footsteps of midfielders James Akaminko and Sospeter Bajana as well as right full-back Nathaniel Chilambo.
