Bashir Asiku Joins UPL Side

Defender Bashir Asiku has joined Uganda Premier League side Gaddafi, The-SportsNation can confirm.

This confirms his departure from his brief stint with Wakiso Giants that began at the start of the season.

Asiku’s time with Wakiso Giants was interrupted by a five-game suspension in the first round, stemming from an incident where he was found guilty of attacking match officials during a match against URA in October of the previous year.

Asiku, a versatile center back capable of playing on the right side as well, aims to fortify Gaddafi’s defense following the departure of key players, including defender Ibrahim Kiyemba.

Gaddafi has also added Ayman Twaha Toure, the former captain of Buddu, who led the team to a commendable fourth-place finish in the Masaza Cup last season.

Ivan Sserubiru, Hassan Musana, Rogers Kiwanuka and Jackson Wabuleta are the other new signings at Gaddafi.

Under the guidance of coach David Mutono, Gaddafi concluded the first round in 13th place, just one point above the relegation zone.

With the addition of Asiku and other new signings, the team aspires to enhance its performance as they kick off the second round at Gaddafi Arena, facing URA FC on Friday, February 2.
