Burkina Faso forward Sogne Yacouba has made his long awaited return from injury for Tanzanian side Young Africans.

The former Kotoko forward was installed in the Starting line-up as he marked his injury return to help his side consolidate their lead at the top of the table.

The Tanzanian giants beat Mtibwar Sugar 1-0 to maintain a six points lead at the top over second-place Simba.

Yacouba suffered a devastating knee injury last season that kept him on the side lines for over a year.

The forward told extramtimeonline ‘ he is happy to be back’ and ready to help his side lift the ‘coveted league trophy’.
