Returning Ambrose Kirya Upbeat After Season Out

Winger Ambrose Kirya is glad to be back after missing a whole season out.

Kirya joined BUL FC on September 3rd last year, ending his five-year stay at Sports Club Villa.

However, he got a major set back; picking a career threatening injury that saw him ruled out for the whole season.

“I injured my left knee, that was the third day of the preseason training at my new club BUL,” Kirya told The-SportsNation.

“I actually do not remember which was my last game at Villa, that is how long I have been out!”

He narrates: “Getting that injury is the worst moment of my career. It was bad. And it felt so bad watching my friends play, going to a game and see your team lose a game and you could not do anything at all to fight with them.”

Last week, Kirya was involved in a BUL FC friendly against Budondo FC and is now looking forward for his debut against Express in the Stanbic Uganda Cup.

“I feel am ready to go,” Kirya adds. “Football is my job and I want to thank the management of BUL FC who have been there for me.”

“I now feel better, and I want to help BUL FC achieve their targets. I used to be summoned for National team engagements, I have missed out a lot and I have my eyes on Uganda Cranes and getting may be a deal abroad.”

While at Villa in his last season, Kirya scored seven goals to emerge as their top scorer for 2019/20 season.

He will be hoping to help BUL FC who has lost a couple of players including Robert Mukongotya and Deogracious Ojok among others going into the 2021/22 season.
