Uganda midfield sensation Titus Ssematimba, also commonly identified as ‘Tito’, is close to becoming a Wakiso Giants player according to sources close to the club.
The player is yet to reach any formal agreement with the Giants of Wakiso, but eyewitnesses claim to have seen him training with the Purple Sharks in the past week.
It is further understood that Tito will be granted a contract after he has been assessed by the technical team and made an impression.
He will most certainly join the Purple Sharks, given that the gaffer, Douglas Bamweyana, is a big fan of the maestro’s quick thinking ball skills, composure and sleek-passing abilities.
Besides, there are various spaces to fill at the club after the departure of key players like Vianne Ssekajugo, Kipson Atuhairwe, Swaib Mudde, Amos Muwonge and Yasin Mugume.
Only Frank Ssenyondo from Express FC has been introduced as the newest addition from last season. Gaddafi Wahab on the other hand forced his way out to Arua Hill while Geriga Atendele is on course to follow his teammate.
There is just enough space to accommodate the midfielder at the Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium where he will reunite with his longtime friend and partner in crime Ibrahim ‘Owen Baba’ Kasule.
Tito and Owen Baba connived to break every team’s defensive wall in the University Football League at St. Lawrence.
The two midfielders replicated the same form in the Masaza Cup tournament with Buddu FC, and their cohesion was the magic formula.
Wakiso Giants hope to improve in this coming term as they finished ninth last season, having collected 36 points from 26 games – comprising of 12 draws, eight wins and six losses.
