However, once he became a free agent, the plan for the person appointed as Canada’s most valuable player after the 2019 Canadian Football League (CFL) campaign did not go as planned.
“It’s very complicated,” he said in a speech on the official CFL podcast this week. I will be very transparent. The truth is, I really want to return to Montreal. I really want to end my career there.I remember signing there [l’ancien directeur général des Alouettes Kavis Reed] Said to me: “Heinock, your business is great, and we hope this will be your home until the end.”
“This is my understanding, this is my belief, and I think it will become my reality. So I was surprised, and the same was true for several CEOs I spoke [lorsque je suis devenu joueur autonome]. »
However, financial realities related to tour losses forced all formations to review their calculations, and in the eyes of the new DG Dany Maciocia, Muamba’s high salary in Montreal is no longer justified.
“This time, I naturally expect a team to make room for me. This is the initial factor. I think Montreal is not the best place for me. This decision takes many things into consideration. Finally, it is time to go home An important part of the decision,” said the Canadian Congolese who grew up in Montreal and Mississauga, Ontario.
Muamba finally revealed that conversations with “Pinball” Clemons of Argos General Motors made the scale lighter. However, he did send a message to Sparrow’s supporters.
Montreal is amazing. I had a great time there. The support and love is great. When I walk and eat, no matter what I do in this city, I have the support of the guerrillas. It’s incredible.
“I really wish I could stay, but life continues.”
