Mohammed Kasirye admits that he will have to work very hard to cement his place in Sofapaka’s squad after sealing a move to Batoto Ba Mungu from Paidha Black Angels.
Kasirye was among five players that were unveiled by Batoto Ba Mungu on Monday afternoon ahead of 2019/20 Kenyan Premier League campaign that kicks off in a week’s time.
The rest are goalkeeper Jimmy Kanakulya from Bright Stars, Allan Katwe from Nkumba University, striker Peter Lwasa from URA FC and defender Musa Malunda from Bul FC.
“Coming into a different country requires me to work harder and prove that I should be playing here,” Kasirye told the club website.
“I am ready to compete and having seen the team in training for the past week, I know the amount of work awaiting me is not small. My target at Sofapaka is to play well and win trophies,” he added.
At Batoto Ba Mungu Kasirye faces stiff competition from the likes of Cersidy Okeyo, Mohamed Kilume, Timmonah Wanyonyi, and the midfielder understands the challenge ahead of him.
Sofapaka begin their 2019/20 campaign with a league match against Posta Rangers on Saturday 31st August at Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.
