KCCA FC defender Filbert Obenchan’s future at the club continues to lie on the border since his employment contract is left with thirteen days to come to an end.
Many clubs such as URA, Vipers, Express, Azam and Kenya’s Tusker have expressed interest in the services of the hardworking defender, but he notes priority will be given to his boyhood club.
“Yes, my contract is about to end, and my agent has been approached by some clubs,” Obenchan told Football256, before adding; “I remain a true and loyal player for KCCA for now.”
Obenchan has spent seven years at the MTN Omondi Stadium, Lugogo, three of those at the junior side, and four with the senior side of the 13-time Uganda Premier League winners.
He also played for UPDF FC on a loan spell for half of the 2016-17 season before he was recalled by the club due to the great display from the defender.
“I have been at KCCA for close to seven years. I have gone through the ranks because I first played for U17 side though professionally I have spent here four years,” he said.
“My journey at KCCA has been 50-50 coupled with good times and bad times. Though I can openly say that I have achieved a lot in the four years at the mighty club and have also matured as a player.”
“I lie with beautiful memories, and I can tell you that my best and proudest is when we qualified for CAF Champions league because the mood was at the peak,” Obechan emotionally noted.
“Though my worst moment at the club are the current times now that results are not coming our way. We have had a lot of setbacks here and there that have affected the club negatively.”
“The club is facing a tough wave now. I think it is due to the changes, but the players have got to cope. But with time, I am sure all will come good,” Obenchan concluded.
The 25-year-old defender has managed to win one StarTimes Uganda Premier League, one Uganda Cup, two Super Cups, one Super Eight Cup, one CECAFA Kagame Club Cup and One Masaza Cup with Ssaza side Buddu.
