Former Hawks FC defender Kaba Sambou has won his first professional league title after KF Trepça’89 were crowned Kosovo Premier League champions on Tuesday.
The versatile Gambia international and his team secured a 2-0 win at KF Besa Pejë for their fifth consecutive win that enabled them become league champions with three games to spare.
The 21-year-old featured heavily for Trepça’89 since moving to the club in February this year, helping it secure 74 points out of 30 matches.
The former Stade de Mbour loanee and his team will now play in the First qualifying round of the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League that gets underway next month.
Kaba is the first Gambian to play in Kosovo, a country that only gained its independence in February 2008.
KF Trepça’89, formed in 1989, are based in Mitrovicë, which is the northern part of Kosovo. They play their matches at the 12,000 capacity Riza Lushta Stadium.
