Brian Aheebwa Opens Up On Transition From Mbarara City

Striker Brian Aheebwa has talked about his time at KCCA FC since sealing his move from Mbarara City.

Aheebwa joined KCCA in August, signing a three-year deal at Lugogo, after his contract at Mbarara had expired.

He left Mbarara City, a club where he was pivotal when they earned UPL promotion in 2017, as the all time top goalscorer with 39 goals.

At KCCA FC, he has so far lived as advertised – He got off to a perfect start with a goal and an assist in the league opening 2-1 win over Bright Stars.

He scored four against Onduparaka and converted from the spot in the loss at SC Villa to take his tally to six goals.

“It has not been easy but it has been a good transition,” Aheebwa said.

“KCCA FC has good players and welcoming staff, so they made me feel at home and it was easy for me to copy up with life here.

“Mbarara and KCCA are two different clubs with different ambitions, KCCA is playing in Confederation Cup which is not the case the other side, so its a very big difference.”

He adds: “I am very delighted for the performance I have put up so far. I am proud of myself and am just keeping hard everyday to work hard to see myself better in the next games that are coming up.”

Despite scoring from the spot, the striker saw his side suffer their first defeat of the campaign against SC Villa in Bombo last Tuesday in a Kampala derby.

“I can’t say that the game was too tough but the result turned out to be tough on our side. But we are set to bounce back and everyone is in good shape,” the sharp shooter adds.

Aheebwa, alongside Sam Ssenyonjo, will shoulder KCCA FC goal needs when they face URA FC on Friday.

He explained: “Friday’s game is very important to us, the boys are very set to go, so everyone is prepared for the game because we have a very big task ahead of us.

“As an individual, its very important for me because I just look forward to add on each and every performance.”

Aheebwa states that he is his own driving force and he keeps on pushing himself to become a better player.
