KCCA FC CEO Anisha Muhoozi has asked new signing Juma Balinya to “soar higher” in the coming 2020/21 UPL season.
The former Uganda Premier League top scorer was unveiled on Sunday during the club’s show on Sanyuka TV.
Muhoozi has expressed belief in the new signing and affirmed that the former Police FC star man will “quench our thirst.”
“You wowed many in the 2018/2019 season and emerged top scorer,” Muhoozi tweeted.
“The stage is being set for the 2020/2021 season and we believe you will quench our thirst. Soar higher than never before Juma Balinya.”
The attacking midfielder cum forward, scored 19 goals in the 2018/19 season while at Police FC to win the UPL golden boot.
Geoffrey Sserunkuma, who scored 20 goals in the 2016/17 season, is the last KCCA player to win the UPL golden boot.
KCCA FC’s top five players with most league goals last season, will not be at the club next season – Check list below.
Balinya joins KCCA FC after prematurely ending his tenure with Kenyan giants Gor Mahia over nonpayment issues.
He has also played for Kampala Kids League, Vipers, Lweza, Police and Young Africans.
KCCA FC coach Mike Mutebi said that Balinya will play in midfield, and his scoring ability will lift the burden off his forwards that include Brian Aheebwa and Sadat Anaku among others.
KCCA FC has so far unveiled Stefano Mazengo Loro, Charles Lwanga, Ashraf Mugume, Denis Iguma, Bright Anukani, Brian Aheebwa, Samson Kigozi and also promoted Dominic Ayella.
