Industrious Midfielder Gift Ali has tipped new teammate Stefano Mazengo Loro to shine at KCCA FC.
Italian Mazengo signed a two-year contract with KCCA FC with an option to extend for more two, and was unveiled on Sunday.
Gigi, as commonly known in the football circles, says that he knows Mazengo from way back.
“I know him from way back in the days when we played at Kampala Kids League with Maxime (Van Pee),” he told this website.
“He is a fantastic and good player. He is a better person even off the pitch and I think he is a good addition.”
There have been many views suggesting that Mazengo may fail to flourish in the demanding and physical local league.
However, Gigi says that “he is not the weakest I have ever played with” and “he will do just fine.”
Mazengo, is a central midfielder, and he will have to battle with Gigi for a possible starting place.
On the new competition, Gigi says that this will be a healthy competition: “There has, there is and there will always be competition in the game and KCCA being the best in the land, you can’t run away from it, It makes us better players.”
