KCCA FC manager Mike Hilary Mutebi has expressed confidence in his new signings as the side up plans for the 2020/21 season.
On Sunday, KCCA FC confirmed Andrew Samson Kigozi as their seventh new signing in a three years deal.
Kigozi is the latest addition for the 13-time champions who have previously unveiled Italian Stefano Mazengo Loro, Brian Aheebwa, Denis Iguma, Bright Anukani, Charles Lwanga and Ashraf Mugume.
“I am interested in players who are still in the early 20s because I want players that will stay at the club for some time,” Mutebi said on KCCA FC TV.
“We have given these players longterm contracts to help them grow, stable and gain confidence here.”
Last season, KCCA FC suffered injuries to some of their star players including John Revita and consequently lost the title chase to Champions Vipers.
“When we lost suffered injuries, we didn’t have able replacements, but we have them now,” Mutebi added. “Actually, all these players are at the same level and will add more competition to the team and also add a lot to their personal growth.
“I am signing players which I know that they have potential, some of them don’t know their positions because they are still young but they can be turned into better players.”
Mutebi added that the new signings will give him “headache” in terms of selection adding that KCCA FC is a big team that must have at least three players competing for a same number if the team is to fulfil the dream of becoming the number one team in the region.
KCCA FC remain linked to Ibrahim Mugulusi of Busoga United but the deal to acquire Pius Obuya has fallen through after a reported medical failure.
