After completing his switch from KCCA FC to Police FC, Eric Ssenjobe has revealed the secret behind his move. He is in search of more playing time which was not availed to him by his former club.
Ssenjobe was unveiled as a new Police FC player at the club headquarters in Naguru on Friday afternoon signing a two-year contract until 2022.
“I feel very happy as a player to join Police FC,” Ssenjobe told Football256 before adding.
“I know am going to get playing time to show that am a capable player which has not been the case at KCCA where I have surely played less.”
“With the opportunity to play given to me, I promise that I will extremely work hard in order to help the club achieve its ambitions and as I also continue developing as a player, with God by my side.”
The 21-year-old defender becomes coach Abdullah Mubiru’s third signing, joining Uganda Cranes midfielder Tony Mawejje and defender Hassan Muhamood who also joined earlier this week.
“It’s a pleasure playing under coach Mubiru who’s the Cranes’ assistant coach definitely he knows the basics required for one to become a national team player.”
“And as it’s every player’s dream to play for the national team, that doesn’t change with me as well. Therefore, working with him will prepare me for the above feat,” he noted.
Ssenjobe came through the ranks at KCCA development side, and was involved in 21 games since he was promoted to the senior team in 2018, mostly utilised as a substitute.
He joins the 2005 league winners who are undergoing a massive rebuilding process as they seek to revive their fortunes come the 2020/2021 StarTimes Uganda Premier League season.
The Cops finished 13th on the 16-team log a point above the relegation zone whereas Ssenjobe’s former club KCCA were runners up to champions Vipers SC when FUFA curtailed the football season in Uganda due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
