Gadaffi FC’s new signing Jamaldine Buchochera has been loud in expressing his hunger for success as he looks forward to making his Uganda Premier League debut, he just can’t wait to get going.
The former Mbale Heroes defender is one of the 27 players that the new league entrants announced earlier this week on Tuesday, October 12, ahead of their maiden season in the county’s top division.
The player was unable to hide his excitement at the fact that his topflight debut looks imminent after years of hardwork. He spoke to Football256 in an exclusive interview.
“I have played with and against some players here, but the fact is this is a new club I just joined, and I have to prove my worth,” Buchochera told Football256.
“Yes, my qualities might be regarded as good, and that’s why I’m here in the first place. But without hardwork, I would not be here, that’s why I’ll work even harder here,” he added.
“Hardwork never really fails to pay off, to be better, you have to work, I work to improve everyday,” Buchochera reiterated.
Buchochera, who captained Mbale Heroes last season is just waiting to debut for the Soldier Boys while his former side wait to play in the third division following their relegation from the FUFA Big League.
By fair description, the dreadlocked tall and skinny baller is a dedicated fighter and seen from his displays last season which stood out in both circumstances when the team was winning or losing.
It was such character and attitude that surely lured the technical team at Gaddafi to secure the services of the defender who played against them a numerous number of times in both the Big League and the Uganda Cup.
“It’s not like I love war, but I hate losing. I would rather stand up to fight if just sitting there would imply that I have to lose,” he expounded about his mentality.
“I don’t want to sit and watch things happen when I can make a change myself so, any chance I get for my life, for my family, for my team, I fight.”
“I will fight for a position in the team, and I will fight for the club in the league,” Buchochera affirmed.
His closest friend at Gaddafi is also a dreadlocked workaholic just like himself, Ibrahim Massa-with whom they share the same work ethic and Rastafarian vibrations.
There is surely no doubt that these birds of the same feathers will fly together.
Buchochera is expected to boost Gaddafi’s options at the back but can as well be effectively employed in the middle of the field, where he played the whole of last season.
Rock solid, versatile with a heart of a soldier, Buchochera is just testament of the lifelong adage that hardwork pays.
