Isaac Muleme is determined to push on amidst the challenges the Uganda Cranes defender is going through in Europe.
Muleme who left KCCA FC in 2017, recently rejoined his Czech Republic team Viktoria Zizkov after ending a loan spell with Slovakian side Nitra FC.
Uganda Cranes players abroad have faced all kinds of obstacles and many have seen their spells brought to a premature end.
“Here, they do speak Czech only, they want to promote their language. Few people speak English,” Muleme opens up to The-SportsNation.
“They do not eat fresh food, its always kept in the fridge. The weather is not that I am used to – Winter, Autumn and summer. It gets tough.”
Muleme says that Ugandans should be prepared for those and more challenges if they are to play in Europe.
He says that his previous spell in Slovakia was a bit better because “they speak English and it’s easy to associate with people although it’s a small country” but the level of competition in Czech is better.
He has vowed to help Zizkov earn top flight promotion.
Muleme who also played for SC Villa and Victoria University in Uganda, joined Alassiouty Sport in Egypt, was released after club got Saudi Arabian investors and they rebranded to Pyramids FC.
He secured a move to Haras El Hodoud, and still curses playing in Egypt.
“To be honest, in North Africa they don’t want to pay players but people just keep judging us without knowing the truth. I was there before, I know how they treat players. North Africa is S**t and I don’t advise any player to go there.”
