Uganda Cranes gigantic defender Bevis Mugabi is thrilled with his contract extension at Scottish Premier League side Motherwell FC.
The former Southampton youth player had initially signed a short-term contract until January 2020, but due to his impressive run in the four games featured in so far, a stay with the club until the summer of 2021 is guaranteed.
“I’m delighted to be staying with the club,” Mugabi was quoted by the club’s official website before adding.
“I’ve had nothing but positive experiences so far with the club and I am glad to now have the chance to stay longer,” he added.
Mugabi signed for Motherwell in September from Yeovil Town where he impressed with superb defensive performances it was probably no surprise that the former’s manager Stephen Robinson wants to work with him more.
“Bevis gives us another fantastic option in defence and has taken to Scottish football with ease, we’re pleased he’s agreed to stay with us,” Robinson noted.
Mugabi is now a regular starter in the Uganda national backline having featured in both the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers against Burkina Faso away in Ouagadougou and Malawi in Kampala.
He also featured in three of the four games the Cranes played at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
