Ryan Myambe Contract Extended To 2021

Namibia's International star Ryan Nyambe joined Blackburn Rovers while 13 years old.
Nyambe was awarded his first professional deal by the club in 2015 and start developing a formidable career helping Under-21s to reach the Premier League level. With that contract already expired in 2018, Nyambe has signed another two-years new contract in April 2019, with the option for a further 12 months, and is now looking to keep the momentum and progress at Ewood Park.


Africa Cup of Nations adventure: It was the third time the Brave Warriors had qualified for the AFCON tournament. The Rovers defender was part of the Namibian team that lost 4-1 in their final game against the Ivory Coast to finish bottom of Group D. With the match against Morocco that ended in a 0-1 defeat, Nyambe was credited as man-of the-match.

Nyambe stated that he knows the contribution he could make to the country of his birthplace particularly to the Brave Warriors. "Expect me to give all in every game and hopefully I can make an impact that will help the team succeed," he said. "I would bring to the team the ability to defend and energy as a full-back." He is a big fan of Manchester United and always models his game on the former star and defender Rio Ferdinand.

The 19-year-old has established himself in the Blackburn Rovers F.C. as respected defender in the 1st-team since making his debut in the EFL Cup tie at Leeds in September 2016. He has since gone on to make 29 appearances, including all 15 in which head coach Tony Mowbray has taken charge off. “I can’t wait for the new season to start and to learn more. This new contract means a lot to me because I’ve been here for a very long time and I just want to pay the club back for what they’ve done for me.” Rovers were keen to reward Nyambe for his progression through the ranks with the right back having joined the Academy at the age of 13 after moving to England from Namibia.

Blackburn Rovers boss Tony Mowbray now again wants to add some defensive reinforcements to Nyambe's ranks to solidify the position. A loan deal for Manchester City youngster Tosin Adarabioyo is understood to be concluded in the fortnight of the transfer window.  The Nigerian footballer will work hand-in-hand with Namibian player at centre back to add a competitive fortress at the back.

“More will be expected of me, because of what I experienced last season, so I will be expected to do better than I did last season because of how much I’ve learnt,” said Nyambe  “He (Mowbray) is a very good manager. He’s always talking to me and helping me every single day. Even during games, I can hear him shouting at me and telling me what to do and I listen to him and it really helps. “I’ve got a lot more to learn. I just need to get my head down, work hard and listen to people. “Personally, I think I did okay last season, but unfortunately for the team it wasn’t great. But the main target this year is to get back up and that’s the only target we want.” Nyambe added.

Ryan Nyambe shakes hands after signed a new contract with Rovers' management.
Nyambe was featured in Rovers’opening pre-season friendlies, but missed the last game at Morecambe after picking up an injury in training. But he’s excited about the League One campaign ahead, adding: “We’ve been looking really good in pre-season. “Everyone is looking fit and sharp, so I don’t see why we can’t have a successful season. “I’m really excited and I can’t wait for our first game.” he further elaborated.

Mowbray has already added a competition on his position in the right back area after signing 29-year-old Paul Caddis on the two-year deal on 20 July, 2017 from Bury FC to Blackburn Rovers before dropped him off when Paul's contract ended in August 2018. The boss always like to tease him “Hopefully Ryan can watch and learn from Paul’s different qualities as a footballer. Knowing Caddy’s personality, I think he will help the young lads as well.
