Azam FC will be representing Tanzania in next season’s CAF Confederations Cup and the inclusion of Djodi is expected to enhance their chances during the campaign.

Djodi previously played for Guinea premiership side AC Horoya and AC Leopards of Mali respectively.

The gifted midfielder was on the radar of Kumasi Asante Kotoko and was close to joining them on a free transfer after his contract with the Miners expired.
