Uganda Cranes star Abdul Lumala is hoping for a deal back to Europe after getting frustrated at Egypt’s Pyramids FC.
The player revealed that it has been “very difficult” for him at Pyramids, where he has managed to feature in five official games in all competitions.
The Winger joined Pyramids FC in August 2019 after impressing the side during AFCON tourney in the country.
Lumala, as quoted by Daily Monitor, said:
“It’s been very difficult for me to adopt because of their system of play. It’s not a game for me and hopefully very soon I will be moving back to Europe. That’s for sure.”
It is said that his move to Pyramids was fueled by former Cranes coach Sebastien Desabre. Desabre’s exit has seen Lumala fall in the pecking order under the new coach.
“It’s not Desabre who brought me here. Of course, he wanted me but the club wanted me more. I am still in the coach’s plans. It’s only football. You play good football, people will always want you in their team.”
“No ambitious player in the world would want to be on the bench. It is a character. I want to always be playing.
“There were many links to many teams but this was the best deal for me because I was with my coach.”
Lumala, gifted with pace and a bag of tricks, played for Sweden’s Mjallby AIF before moving to Kalmar FF. He also featured for Helsingborg and Syrianska FC among other clubs, on loan.
