With a second bite at the Lugogo cherry, Daniel Isiago Opolot hopes for a better outing this time round after signing a two year deal with the 13 time league champions.
Striker Daniel Isiagi Opolot was unveiled as a KCCA FC player on Thursday returning to the club he last played for between 2014 and 2016.
Upon his return to the club, he immediately looked back on the good memories of his first stint with KCCA.
“I am happy to be back at KCCA FC. I call this home because of the good memories I have had here before,” Isiagi was quoted saying by the club website.
“I won a league title with this club in the 2015/16 season and this was such a great thing. So many good memories I have with this club and I wish to add many more others.”
Isiagi is the ninth player to join the Kasasiro Boys in the ongoing exchange market.
The others are; Tshisungu Kankonde, Moses Waiswa, Muhamed Ssenoga, Muhammad Shaban, Mustafa Mujuzi, Faisal Wabyoona, Saidi Mayanja, and Allan Enyou.
“We have a great group of players and I want to work with my mates to add to the success of this great club,” he noted.
Morley Byekwaso who is the current KCCA head coach and Isiagi worked together previously at the now defunct Victoria University SC.
“I have worked with Manager Morley Byekwaso before at Victoria University and he is a fantastic guy.”
“I am looking forward to working with him again and learning from him,” Isiagi concluded.
Besides Victoria University and KCCA, he has also played for Proline FC and URA FC in Uganda previously.
While overseas Isiagi plied his trade with South African side Jomo Cosmos and Al Nasr in Egypt.
Ahead of the new season, there is stiff competition for places on Byekwaso’s team, especially up front with many strikers at his disposal.
Isiagi, Kankonde, Shaban, Brian Aheebwa, Brian Kayanja, Charles Lwanga, and Sam Ssenyonjo are some of the forwards KCCA has.
They finished second in the preceding season with 56 points, 18 points adrift of champions Vipers SC.
KCCA will be hoping for a better season as they search for silverware that has eluded them since the 2018/19 season.
Byekwaso’s charges will begin their 2022/23 campaign with a home game against Wakiso Giants on Saturday, October 1.
