Immediately after completing his move to BUL FC, Ibrahim Mugulusi expressed how thrilled he was by the move and vowed to repay head coach Arthur Kyesimira’s faith for according him the opportunity to play for the club.
Mugulusi officially became a BUL FC player on Saturday, August 1, after signing a two-year deal crossing over from cross-town rivals Busoga United.
“I want to first thank the coach for the opportunity and the faith he has put in me, I promise not to disappoint him,” Mugulusi told the club’s media during his unveiling.
“And I believe that when we work together as a team, we shall have a better season than the one the club had the previous season.”
After an impressive start to the season during the first round of the 2019/20 season, BUL’s season took a downturn with the club failing to win in their opening seven games of the second round, and also suffered a shock exit from the Stanbic Uganda Cup.
Head coach Peter Onen faced the sack and was replaced by Arthur Kyesimira who could only steer the club to sixth after winning two of his six games in charge.
Mugulusi and Kyesimira will be working together for the second time, the latter coached Mugulusi as a youngster at Edgars Youth Academy.
Mugulusi also played at Kampala University and Sports Club Villa before he joined Busoga United.
On the same day, BUL FC also unveiled left back Aggrey Madoi who was signed from Wakiso Giants on a two-year deal.
According Kyesimira, the superiority of the newly signed players will help the club compete even better next season.
“Of course, I am thrilled with the new players coming on board and I feel they will beef-up the team to compete favourably and realize our goals for the coming season.”
“I thank management for the effort put in for this to happen,” Arthur Kyesimira noted.
Mugulusi and Madoi are BUL FC’s first signings of the transfer window as they hope to make more business before the new season starts on October 17.
