Uganda Cranes striker Fahad Bayo has said that he wants to use Ashdod FC to secure a bigger platform.
Ashdod FC recently confirmed signing Bayo before the explosive forward recently left Uganda to join his new club that features in the Israel Premier League.
In his farewell interview with Vipers media, Bayo revealed:
“I have to continue working hard because Ashdod FC is not my final journey.”
The striker added:
“When I returned to Uganda from Buildcon FC (Zambia), I told my friends that I want a club that will rejuvenate my career and Vipers has prepared me very well and this is the right time for me to leave.
“I will surely miss playing in the CAF Champions League next season but I have my personal dreams which I have to chase.”
Bayo scored 12 goals in 23 league games to help Vipers win their fourth league title.
The former Proline FC striker scored against KCCA FC on his debut (FUFA Super Eight) for the club and repeated the same feat for Uganda Cranes senior team against Malawi at Namboole in Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers.
“It has been a wonderful journey for me here, I cannot complain,” Bayo added, before thanking the fans, fellow players, coaches and Vipers president Lawrence Mulindwa.
At Ashdod FC, he will join Uganda Cranes defender Timothy Awany. Israel Premier League is also home for Luwagga Kizito who plays for Hapoel Kfar Saba.
