Defender Mustafa Kizza has finally left Kampala for Montreal, Quebec in Canada to join his new club Montreal Impact in the Major League Soccer.
Kizza was signed by the Thierry Henry coached from KCCA FC in July on a two-year contract with an option for a further year if the left-back impresses his bosses.
But due to the prevailing situation surrounded by the coronavirus pandemic then, Montreal Impact decided to loan him back to Lugogo until December 2020.
However, the above loan deal had a clause that indicated that Kizza will leave for America at anytime Montreal Impact wishes given that the travel conditions were favourable.
With the Government of Uganda easing on lockdown measures to allow international travel, Montreal Impact have decided to call upon the 20-year-old to link up with his new teammates.
With Montreal mandated to terminate Kizza’s loan deal with KCCA at their wish, Kizza has left KCCA minus kicking a ball again for his boyhood club since the return of football in Uganda has been delayed.
During his last season with the Kasasiro Boys the marauding left-back managed five goals and 12 assists in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.
He also scored the winner as KCCA defeated Azam FC 1-0 to clinch their first CECAFA Club Championship title since 1978. The club’s second in history.
Arsenal legend, Henry’s charges lie eighth on table in the Eastern Conference of the MLS on 20 points from 17 games, a point above Kizza’s compatriot Micheal Azira’s Chicago Fire.
