Mbarara City FC Midfielder Pistis Barenge has committed his future at the club, it is official.
Barenge has signed a two-year contract extension with the Ankole Lions until the end of July 2022, the club has confirmed.
He becomes the second player to extend his stay at Mbarara City FC after Jude Ssemugabi who signed more three years.
Barenge, formerly at Burundi’s top tier side Vital’O football club joined Mbarara City in July 2017 on a two year deal.
He extended his contract for just one season in June last year.
Barenge is a workaholic midfielder who is normally employed to play in front of the back-line and sits just behind Solomon Okwalinga and Bebe Swalik on most occasions.
The Ankole Lions, coached by Brian Ssenyondo, have already lost Ibrahim Orit while Brian Aheebwa’s move-away looks inevitable.
