KCCA FC new signing Emmanuel Alex Wasswa is over the moon following his recent move to Lugogo where he hopes to not only excite but also convince the crowd who so willingly keep cheering for the Kasasiro Boys.
A confirmation from the club website on Tuesday July 27th expounded more about the agreement with the biggest pick out being the longevity of the his employment contract.
It will be a three-year deal for the anchorman as he looks to command a regular position in the starting line-up in the new and transitional era of Morley Byekwaso.
As expected, a move to a traditional giant like KCCA will always provoke a feeling of delight from any player and more often than not, will be held in high esteem.
Wasswa is no exception to this and listening to his first interview with the club vindicates this assertion.
This is what he had to say the club’s media team:
“KCCA FC is a model club both in and outside Uganda so I am excited to join this massive club. I look forward to putting in a shift so as to build more on the history of this great club.”
The sound of this epitomizes the popularity and marketability of the club that has established them as a strong pull for any exciting talent in the confines of the country and along the East African borders.
The hierarchy at the club have been at this for the last decade and therefore no surprises for guessing why Wasswa made the ultimate decision to trade the Jogoos for Lugogo.
He would continue to say: “Playing for the club opens up the door to exposure both in Uganda and outside the country which is the main aim for any other player. Playing in the Cecafa Kagame Cup will raise my spirit.”
His maiden debut could come as early as next month in the CECAFA Kagame Cup scheduled for 1-15th in Dar el Salam, Tanzania. The club has been gearing up for this since the conclusion of the 2020/21 season.
The Lugogo side will however have to negotiate ties against Burundi’s Le Messanger Ngozi FC and Zanzibar’s Tanzania with whom they have to lockhorns in group A..
That said, his ambition transcends beyond just playing for KCCA and possibly into the plans of coach Micho Sredojevic who is currently on his second stint as the Uganda cranes head coach. The player has set a period of two years for this adventure to be realized.
“I would like to perform at the top most level and even better my performances so as to appeal to the National team. That is every player’s dream and I am no exception,” he added.
His quest for National team football might not come in easy but as we’ve seen overtime, it’s the persistence and resilience that makes one invisible.
