For months now the future of out-of favor KCCA FC player Brian Majwega has been uncertain. But it has since emerged that the player’s hard-line stance to exist Lugogo seems to have scaled significant strides for his part.
PML daily has learnt that the pacy winger is on the verge of agreeing a season-long term loan deal with URA FC that includes the obligation of retaining him on a permanent deal.
Sources claim the Lugazi-based side are expected to reach a point of compromise with KCCA FC, with whom the player has ten months remaining to his two-year contract.
The Uganda Cranes international joined KCCA in April 2016 on a two-year deal to mark his second stint with the yellow boys, having initially been on their books in 2014.
His troubles with KCCA FC came to light in the dying embers of the 2016-2017 UPL season when the former absconded from club activities for close to four weeks without Coach Mike Mutebi’s consent, and he relayed his intentions to leave Lugogo with an inflammatory transfer request citing KCCA FC ‘s reluctance to remit his transfer sign-on fees reported to be UGX10 million.
The jilted player, for his part, accused KCCA FC of failure to meet part of their deal.
The sequence of events severed the players’ relationship with his employers to the point of no repair. He turned out a pantomime villain of sorts in the eyes of KCCA FC faithful. Certainly, it would take a brave or foolhardy coach to keep hold of such volatile character, and the writings were on the wall that Mike Mutebi, a renowned strict disciplinarian, will ship him out- much to the player’s delight.
SC Villa and Vipers SC have been monitoring Majwega’s situation with keen interest while his former coach at KCCA FC, Abdullah Mubiru, was hoping to re-unite with the player at Police FC, but it looks the tax collectors have swiftly ascended ahead of the queue of suitors with a succulent deal.
The financial nitty gritty of the deal remain undisclosed but sources indicate Majwega will be smiling all the way to the bank for a hefty pay. Zambian Outfit Zesco United had initially inquired about the aviability of the player, but opted to sign Ugandan counterpart Davis Kasirye.
Coach Ibrahim Kirya is said to be an admirer of Majwega’s repertoire. His audacity to run directly to opposing defenses, the art of cut-inside and go for a curler and delivering crosses would bolster URA FC’s attacking force. The prospect of fielding Majwega in tandem with Shafik Kagimu is a tantalizing one.
URA FC are undergoing a resounding re-building process as they seek to launch a title bid for the upcoming 2017-2018 UPL season. The Ibrahim Kirya coached side have already beefed up their ranks
