Ugandan goalkeeper Jimmy Kanakulya says he is ready for a new challenge after sealing a move from Bright Stars to Kenyan Premier League side, Sofapaka.
Jimmy was on Tuesday unveiled as a Sofapaka player and he is expected to fill the void left by his Burundian counterpart Justin Ndikumana who quit the club for Mombasa based Kenyan Premier League side, Bandari.
Speaking during his unveiling, Kanakulya said he understands the big challenge ahead of him but is ready to do his best at Batoto Ba Mungu.
“I feel really privileged to sign for this great club and so far so good,” Kanakulya said at the official unveiling ceremony before adding.
“I have trained with the rest of the guys and I feel welcome here. The challenge is great but I am ready for the task.”
“I know I am coming in to fill huge boots but I will do my best to ensure I continue with the good work,” he was later quoted by the club’s official website.
Kanyakulya together with midfielders Mohammed Kasirye (Paidha Black Angels), Allan Katwe (Nkumba University) defender Musa Malunda (BUL FC) and striker Peter Luwasa (URA) are the Ugandan presentation at Sofapaka ahead of the new season.
