MBARARA – After arguably their best top flight campaign in ages, Mbarara City FC have no intentions of slowing down.
The Ankole Lions who finished 5th with 46 points in the 2018/19 season, have secured the signing of Onduparaka fans’ favorite Gadaffi Gadinho.
Gaddafi is understood to have put pen to paper on a two year deal that will see him don the all-white kit until at least 2021.
The capture of Gadaffi was confirmed by Mbarara City FC Public Relations Officer Saddam Mugarura on his official Facebook account.
“Mbarara City Football Club have signed Gadaffi Gadinho for two years, read Mugarura’s post.
Gadaffi has been a prized asset at Onduparaka ever since they joined the top flight in 2016.
However, he has been in and out of the team throughout that period due to consistent injuries and indiscipline issues.
Last season, the stylish midfielder scored 6 goals and made five assists and was a key component in the West Nile based club’s 6th place finish.
He becomes the second player to cross from Onduparaka to Mbarara after defender Rashid Muhammad did likewise at the start of the just concluded season.
Gaddafi is expected to team up with former KCCA FC midfielder Paul Mucurezi in the upcoming season and the pair will surely be one to watch out for.
After securing the services of Gadaffi, Mbarara are now understood to be on the hunt for more players with Express’s Lawrence Kigonya and Vianne Ssekajugo on top of their priority list.
