Express FC’s forward Eric Kambale is ready to compete with experienced Frank Kalanda for playing time as he targets being as instrumental as possible in Wasswa Bbosa’s Red Army next season.
The striker unceremoniously departed Express FC at the start of the 2019/20 season after his promising start to life with the Red Eagle, but bounced back in January.
But with just a single goal last season after playing only the second round, he will indeed have to more than double his efforts if he is to share more minutes with Kalanda who managed 11 goals last season and also win more fans support.
“It’s been start-stop for me,” Kambale told the club’s official website before he added.
“I missed the first round of last season because of personal reasons and that set me back a bit but I know I have to work hard to earn coach Bbosa’s trust ahead of next season.”
And with Express rebuilding it’s squad to compete next season, the striker understands the pressure and responsibility that comes with being the club’s top marksman.
More than 18 players have parted ways with the club with massive changes in the playing staff expected before the new season.
But the fact that Bbosa considers Kambale is a sign that he believes in his abilities thus, the forward wants to pay back the trust in him come next season.
The Wankulukuku based outfit finished ninth last season after scoring 31 points from the 25 games.
