He has named Nelson Ssenkatuka as his best teammate ever while Mujuzi as his toughest opponent.
He credited Fred Kajoba as the best coach he has played under while Lionel Messi and Steven Bengo as the stars he grew up admiring.
Here is the breakdown
SportsNation: Who is the best player player you have played with?
Mahad: Nelson Senkatuka. He was my captain at Bright Stars and he was outstanding. We looked to him in case the team needed a goal. He was a leader on the pitch and also made my work easy as a midfielder because he never wasted chances.
SportsNation: Toughest player played against
Mahad: Mustapha Mujuzi and Steven Luswata. Mujuzi is a very hard tackler and no nonsense player. And Steven Luswata is so tough, hard to beat and he also tackles.
SportsNation: Best manager played under?
Mahad: Fred Kajoba. He has been like a father to me. He also motivated me, he keeps telling me that I have the ability to be the best. I have been injured but he still cares to know how I am doing.
SportsNation: Favorite game ever played?
Mahad: Many games but I think I will go with Onduparaka Vs Water FC in the FUFA Big League, I was still with Water FC. I scored and made two assists though we lost the game. But I think that game made Onduparaka to sign me.
SportsNation: Football Heroes when growing?
Mahad: I looked up to Steven Bengo and Lionel Messi. I fancy Bengo a lot. His dribbles, technique, power, he was a beauty to watch.
And Lionel Messi that’s why my friend call me Messi because am also left footed and I can dribble past opponents hahaha though not on his level.
SportsNation: Anything strange you will never forget in your football career?
Mahad: I think losing to Proline in the Uganda Cup final in Masaka, I can’t forget that moment, it hurts me so much. Then Worst moment is getting injured, we had gone to Fort Portal to play Uganda Cup quarter final and I fractured my knee.
SportsNation: Craziest teammate ever played with?
Mahad: All Goalkeepers, I think it’s in their gene to be crazy. Seguya Pico at Water FC and Tamale Simon at Bright Stars FC.
