Despite dominating the headlines recently due to his superb form at KCCA, Nicholas Kasozi had a different story during his initial days at the Lugogo based club.
The midfield turbine who joined KCCA from SC Villa in August last year found it difficult to stamp his authority in Mike Mutebi’s squad. He even prompted to leave for another club in the January transfer window due to limited playing time at the Kasasiro Boys.
“When I came in, it was a little difficult for me, I got injured in pre-season and when I returned I got injured again, it has been a whole new experience here at KCCA FC,” Kasozi told the club’s official website.
Despite the prior injuries, the intelligent midfielder remained positive and focused on his career with the help of the club’s medical team.
“The injury was a massive setback for me as a player but I kept being positive that I would be back stronger. Thanks to the amazing medical team at the club, the players and coaches that worked with me.
“When you come into a big club like KCCA FC you have to work hard to play and when you are not playing you have to keep being positive until your chance comes,” he added.
Due to hard work, commitment and courage, Kasozi turned the story on his own pace, he is now among KCCA’S best performers.
“I am pleased that am able to play games for the club and am enjoying it. The players here keep encouraging one another and support one another. I want to keep going and I hope to win with this club,” he noted.
Kasozi has scooped three Pilsner Man of the Match accolades in KCCA’s last four league games due to his fantastic work rate in the middle of the park. He has also contested for Pilsner Player of the Month for Febuary and March, beaten by Rashid Toha and David Bagoole respectively.
Many argue that Kasozi is one of the reasons why KCCA is on top of StarTimes Uganda Premier League log six points ahead of second-placed Vipers with round rounds to be played.
