Umaru Zaingallay Bangura reclaimed his spot in the FC Zurich first team on Sunday as the Challenge League leaders thrashed Servette 4-0 away from home at the Stadium de Genève.

“Is good to be back,” the Sierra Leone skipper told

The 29-year-old versatile defender was deployed in his usual position in central defence in head coach Ulrich Forte’s side.

Bangura flourished in the defence helping them to pick a vital away win and a clean sheet.

The former Dinamo defender has missed vital matches in recent weeks following his second surgery on his left finger.

Since joining the club, Bangura has only made three League appearances. He scored his first league goal in Zurich 5-0 thumping over Wohlen.

Bangura was part of the FC Zurich’s side that suffered a 2-1 defeat in Spain to Villarreal in the first round of the Europa League ground stage.

In August 2016 he signed a three years contract with Swiss second-tier side FC Zürich.
