With just four days to the start of the 2017/18 Azam Uganda Premier League, several clubs have bolstered their squads in a bid to achieve the targets set.
On Friday morning, defending champions Kampala Capital City Authority Football Club(KCCA FC) unveiled ten new players ahead of the new season that gets underway next week.
Key among them was striker Patrick Kaddu who joins the Lugogo based side on a two year deal from Maroons football club.
In an interview with ChimpReports, the sharp shooter has vowed to repay the faith that manager Mike Hillary Mutebi has entrusted in him.
“I feel happy that I’m joining a big club like KCCA FC. It is a big step in my career as player and I’m ready to exploit the chance,” he said.
“I believe the environment is good enough for me to deliver and now that Coach Mike Mutebi has put the trust me, I promise to return the favour,” Kaddu added.
Asked on whether he will be able to fill the void left behind by Geoffrey Sserunkuuma who has since joined Zambian side Buildcon, Kaddu believes he needs to first play to make full judgement.
“Sserunkuuma is a great striker and have always looked up to him. It is true he has left a big task for us to fulfill but I cannot judge now whether we can replicate what he did or not,” he asserted.
Kaddu was the top scorer of the Fufa Big league last season scoring 23 goals and guiding Maroons to promotion to the Azam Uganda Premier League.
He has formerly played in the top tier division with now defunct Kiira Young.
KCCA FC begin their title defence on Tuesday, September 12 at home against Maroons Football Club.
