New KCCA FC signing Brian Majwega has vowed to take KCCA FC back to its greater heights both locally and on the continent.
The left back cum winger made a return to the Lugogo based side and was unveiled on Sunday July 25th at the KCCA FC tv show that airs out on Sanyuka Tv.
He became the club’s first official signing as the squad undergoes an overhaul of sorts.
In his first interview with the club media, Majwega, who is making his third stint to the club, was excited to be back at Lugogo.
“I’m so excited to be back at KCCA because it has been my club that brought me into football. It means a lot to me. But now I have to work hard, add on and take back the team where it belongs and even leave footsteps for the other young players coming in the future, Majwega told KCCA media.”
Majwega recently ran down his contract at URA FC and returns to the 13th League champions for a third stint. He left KCCA FC in 2017 and had earlier played for the club between 2009 and 2013.
He highlighted on the reasons that inspired him to rejoin the club.
“What inspired me to come back to KCCA is that it’s one of biggest clubs in East Africa and on the continent, I wish every player who wants to add on their career would join such a club.
“Secondly, I also have some of my fellow players on the team and it’s one of the teams that plays good football and I will be glad to play with such brilliant players. Lastly KCCA is like a mother to me because I grew up and started my career here.”
The former Azam FC player comes at a time when the club has not attained any piece of silverware for the past two seasons.
Next season, the Kasasiro Boys will not take part in any continental affair, the first time in recent times. And Majwega vows to help the team go back to the top.
“I want to help the club in creating goals as well as scoring goals because I know i am good in creating opportunities for my fellow teammates and scoring as well. So by doing so, I will be able to help the team go back to the top in the league and also to the continent.”
The former URA left back joins the Kasasiro Boys under the stewardship of new head coach Morley Byekwaso. Majwega further expressed his strong relationship with the Uganda U23 head coach.
“I have worked with Coach Morley Byekwaso as a team player. During those days back, he was a coach player by then before getting done with his career to become a coach. He is like a father to me, he has guided me on most of the things I have been doing on and off the pitch, up today we been in touch.”
Making his debut for the club is fast approaching, however. First on the menu will be the CECAFA Kagame cup that is scheduled to kick off at the start of next month from 1-15 August.
KCCA FC head into this tournament as defending champions, having won it in the last edition of 2019. Despite going as defending Champions, Majwega says it won’t be an easy task as they need to put in more efforts.
“We are facing most of the big clubs in East African countries. I don’t think the tournament will be an easy task. But we as the players we just have to work hard and help the team defend the title, endure everything and deliver.”
He promises to deliver the goods to repay KCCA FC’s faith.
“They should expect the best out of me I won’t let them down. I will do my job and add on other things the have never seen out of me, I think I will deliver.”
Ever since former KCCA FC left back Mustafa Kizza’s departure, the Club has struggled to fill the void at left back. And now with Majwega’s arrival, he is expected to be a viable replacement basing on his experience.
His experience and leadership will be a big boost to the Morley Byekwaso coached side as they head to the rebuilding process come next season.
Usama Arafat is the other player who is said to have completed his move to the Kasasiro Boys.
Recently, the club has also let go of defenders Filbert Obenchan and Moses Kalanzi.
