Energetic forward Alfred Leku bewails his spell at Proline FC.
The player who joined Proline last season, signed a one year contact which has now expired.
He says that he would not have returned to the club even if his contract was still ongoing.
“I signed only one season with them and its done,” Leku told this website. “Even if I still had contract with Proline still I would leave because I never had playing time there.”
“I was not treated like a player. I didn’t get playing time.
“I don’t want to say that Proline FC is bad because these situations happen in football but the change in coaches affected me. I joined Proline because of Bisaso (Shafic) and when he left, I knew it was the end of the road for me.”
Proline FC appointed Matia Lule after Bisaso’s departure. Lule who had joined to steer the club through CAF Confederation engagements was later replaced by assistant coach Baker Mbowa.
The club were second from the bottom with 22 points when the league was stopped in March, and later relegated alongside Tooro United and Maroons when FUFA decided to end the season due to Covid 19.
Leku had joined Proline after a one-year stint in Botswana where things didn’t go according to plan as well.
His team Jwaneng Galaxy loaned him out to Extension Gunners before he was later released.
“It was the same issue of coaches because I was also signed by another coach who then left after some weeks. Then the team brought in Miguel Da Costa (who had loaned me out at when I was at Vipers), he did the same to me in Botswana.
“Unfortunately, the team I went on loan in Bostwana never had money and being a foreigner, life became hard in that team. Since I never had a good relationship with Da Costa, I came back at my mother club and he said he can’t add more players in the team.”
The striker has also featured for Onduparaka and notably at Express FC where he scored a famous goal as the Red Eagles beat relegation on the last day of the season.
Leku, now a free agent, is yet to know where he will be next season but “God willing everything will be fine.”
