Nimely, who joined the club on a two-year contract at the beginning of the 2022-23 season, impressed the team, convincing the club to ask him to extend his contract until December 2025.
The former Monrovia Club Breweries FC, now Global Pharma Football Club player, made a rapid impression on supporters during his debut season with the team. He scored 13 goals and contributed seven assists in all competitions for the Uzbekistan team in the just-concluded campaign. The 25-year-old was also one of the finest strikers in the just-ended Uzbekistan Super League, finishing as the joint second-highest scorer.
During the signing ceremony, the club thanked the former Spartak Moscow forward for his contract renewal. “On behalf of our club, we congratulate Sylvanus on his contract extension and wish him more victories.”
For his part, Nimely said he was grateful to his club for the opportunity to extend his contract by another year. He expressed his enjoyment of his debut season with the club and stated that he feels at home with the team.
Despite receiving offers from other teams in the Uzbekistan Super League and from other leagues in Europe, Nimely emphasized his gratitude to Surkhon Termiz, citing the love he has received. “I can’t leave because the people love me. They can’t allow me to leave, and they’re willing to give me whatever, but money is not what motivated me to extend my stay.”
“I love this club—the fans, teammates, coaches, and the project they have. With this group of players and the additions they will make for the new season, we can win big things together,” Nimely told FrontPage Africa.
The 25-year-old forward scored 12 goals and assisted six in 26 league games, ending the season as the club’s top goal scorer last season. Meanwhile, Sylvanus Nimely’s market value has risen to €800,000 following his outstanding debut season with Uzbekistan’s Surkhon Termiz, making him the joint second-most valuable Liberian player with Sampson Dweh.
