Nations Cup qualifier
Uganda v Zambia
IN a bid to remain fit for next month’s Nations Cup qualifier against Zambia, a host of Cranes players whose club seasons are yet to start will train with local clubs.
However, some like striker Brian Umony might even consider making their moves permanent.
Kampala City Council (KCC) football club are planning to lure back their 2007 top scorer with an eight month contract at Lugogo.
The Vietnam-based forward, is on holiday in Kampala recovering from surgery on piles (haemorrhoids) he underwent recently.
His Vietnam-based colleagues Godfrey Kizito and Moses Oloya are also in the country and will not be in action until their season starts in November.
Kizito and Oloya will train with Viper and BIDCO football clubs respectively. Mike Sserumagga who is also currently clubless will train with Viper football club.
“The idea is to keep them fit until their seasons start,” Cranes media officer Katende Malibu stated yesterday.
Nsimbe confirmed yesterday that he had held preliminary talks with Umony to add him to strikers Tonny Odur, Yuda Mugalu, Brian Majwega and Caesar Sapeo. “He is a good striker coming back home.
Next week he will be with us. I need him because if he comes and gives us 100 per cent in the eight months he will be here, I will achieve my target (win the title),” Nsimbe said.
Umony was player of the season when Nsimbe guided KCC to the 2007 Uganda Super League title. Cranes coach Bobby Williamson will address the media at 10am today.
