Striker Brian Mululi scored the winning goal that secured promotion for Bunyoro based club Kitara FC to the top flight.
Donning jersey number 8, Mululi headed home in the 57th minute after Kiboga Young (Mbale Heroes) failed to defend from the corner.
In an exclusive interview with The-SportsNation, the former Kampala University forward revealed his delight in being part of Kitara’s history.
“Of course I was so happy to score the winning goal that secured promotion to the Startimes Uganda Premier League for Kitara FC,” Mululi stated.
After scoring what proved to be the decider, Mululi ran down to the corner flag and sat down to pray where he was joined by teammates.
He explains: “The secret behind my celebration, you know I am a Catholic, I am a believer because you cannot do anything without God’s blessings and plan that’s why I had to thank him.”
Mululi arrived at Kitara FC together with coach Mark Twinamatsiko from Dove FC before the start of last season and went on to score nine goals, ending the campaign as the 2019/20 FUFA Big League top scorer.
“It was one of my objectives and aims to be the top scorer as well as guiding my team to the premier league,” he adds.
“It was not all that difficult for me to play in the big league in Uganda before I had played in UPL before.
Mululi featured for defunct Lweza FC and Brigjt Stars FC in Uganda Premier League, and also played in Tanzania’s African Lyon in the country’s second tier.
The Big League playoffs were held at FUFA Technical Centre in Njeru with strict observance of Covid19 rules.
On how they managed to cope up without fans in the stadium, Mululi stated that it wasn’t all that “hard” because winning matches doesn’t mean fans should be in attendance “as long as you think about when playing.”
He revealed his targets for the top flight: “I want to be the topscorer and being summoned to the national team, when you are in the Startimes Uganda Premier, it’s easy to be summoned to the national team because of the exposure.
The striker is a free agentagent and yet to renew his contract with Kitara FC.
