Azam Uganda Premier League reigning champions concluded their busy involvement in the transfer market with the acquisition of veteran striker Robert Ssentongo.
Ssentongo who was unveiled on Friday morning at the Phillip Omondi stadium could not hide his delight upon rejoining the Kasasiro boys a club he has formerly featured for in two different spells.
“I’m happy to be rejoining KCCA, pharm http://concasol.org/wp-content/plugins/revslider/inc_php/framework/image_view.class.php a club that nurtured me well. I call this place home because I feel comfortable whenever I play here, visit web http://collegenotester.com/applications/dashboard/controllers/class.dashboardcontroller.php ” said Ssentongo.
“They (KCCA FC) have got a good team, sick fantastic players with a great manager whom I have worked with previously and I know what he can offer.” He added.
Ssentongo was the top scorer during last season’s Uganda Premier League scoring 18 goals with URA but the diminutive forward fell out with the tax collectors and was offloaded.
He sought for professional ranks in Qatar and Lebanon but when the deals failed, KCCA snapped him up.
Quizzed about how he will handle the competition for a starting role into the KCCA team, Ssentongo said he is ready for the challenge.
“I’m not bothered about that, my focus is to make sure I help the club achieve its targets. Competition is good because it helps you to worker harder,” said the veteran striker.
Mike Mutebi, the KCCA head coach believes, Ssentongo will be a resourceful player to the club.
“He has proved beyond reasonable doubt that he is a good striker, scoring in double figures almost every single season and even on the national team. So if we have get a striker, the scarcity of goals that we have been experiencing at times will be minimized,” said Mutebi.
Ssentongo joins other veteran players who have joined the defending champions including striker Geoffrey Sserunkuma from Lweza and midfielder Vicent Kayizzi from Express.
