URA FC can confirm the signing of finesse oriented attacking midfielder Saidi Kyeyune on a three-year employment contract that will see his stay with us stretch up to the year 2023.
The exuberant and flamboyant playmaker returns to a familiar environment following the mutual termination of his contract with Sudanese side Al Merreikh Omdurman earlier this year.
Prior to making the move to Sudan, Saidi was an integral part of the Tax Collectors squad and an instrumental piece to the team offensively during the first half of the just-concluded season.
His last game with us was against SC Villa at the Arena of Visions playground (Ndejje University). A game that was characterized by his brilliance in setting up a goal and scoring the decider in added time as the team made a comeback to win 2-1 on the evening.
Saidi was all smiling at the conclusion of his contract and took time to have a word with our media team:
“It’s always a special moment coming back home and even better finding familiar faces at the club. I’ve been gone for less than a year now but everything seems already different and that excites me.” He stated.
With ecstasy, the midfielder highlighted that he had wanted to have his homecoming in the January 2021 transfer window but the move ended up being impossible thanks to the rules concerning the market.
He further assured the fans that he relishes this new opportunity to add more to the club but also most importantly, get to finalize what he had earlier started when he made his debut for URA FC.
Saidi’s rebound to the club is very important to the squad according to coach Simoen Masaba especially now that we have responsibilities on the continent in the CAF Confederations Cup Preliminary round.
He comes with finesse, experience and most importantly, that charismatic character considering that he was the assistant club captain prior to his departure. This will massively help in the development of the young squad being put up by the technical team.
