When Paul Mucureezi’s contract with KCCA FC expired in June 2018 after four good years of service to Kasasiro boys from Mutundwe Lions, many clubs craved for his signature following the midfielder’s decision of not renewing the contract.
Shortly after his departure from KCCA FC, many reports suggested that the talented lad was all set to join the Kitende based side
The reports were founded on the fact that Vipers were longtime admirers of Mucureezi, and vice verse.
To everyone’s surprise, Mucureezi signed for his home-based team Mbarara City FC in August 2018 who were then just one season old in Uganda Premier League.
However, he spent only fourteen months at Mbarara before joining his “dream team” Vipers in January 2020.
While appearing on NBS TV’s The Score on Sunday, the Midfielder revealed why he didn’t join Vipers initially:
“I didn’t join Vipers immediately because there were a lot of signings that season, I was supposed to be part of them but I saw the number being too much and its not that I feared competition but I had to consider my target of playing time which I thought I couldn’t get that time if i had joined them then.
“But I happen to come back to Vipers, to my home, actually at the right time where I am atleast sure of that I will be on the pitch for at least 80 minutes.”
Mucureezi who scored on his Vipers debut against Kyetume, also set his ambition revealing that he wants to takes his team beyond CAF Champion league group stages, making constant appearances on the national team and going professional.
“This season, I am looking forward to taking Vipers to champion league group stages and even further, and making sure that I make it to the national team consistently and making sure that I go professional.”
Mucureezi played on the Continent with KCCA FC, he was part of the Uganda Cranes team preparing for 2020 CHAN before the pandemic.
