Speaking to the Siya crew, Eymael confirmed the signing of the central midfielder whom he speaks highly of.

“We have signed Cesaire Gandze. He’s a number eight – a box to box player. He’s an international player and a regular in the national team of Congo-Brazzaville. He won the Confederation Cup in 2012 with AC Leopards. He also reached the semi-finals of the Champions League one year later,” confirmed the Belgian coach.

Gandze is said to have been signed on a one-year deal with an option to extend for another year by the Bethlehem outfit.
