Mustafa Kizza is looking forward to adapting to life in Portugal and at FC Arouca in particular.
The Uganda Cranes defender penned down a three-year contract with the Portuguese Primeira Liga side on Friday.
“For this first season, I just want to work hard, play, and get to know the team so that we can get a positive performance,” Kizza in a post on the club’s official Twitter account.
“Then the results will appear. But the main focus will always be to help the team,” the 22-year-old noted.
Kizza has been a free agent since December 2021 when he left Major League Soccer outfit Montreal Impact.
The former KCCA FC left-back will be playing in the sixth greatest European league according to the UEFA national league ranking.
Arouca, Kizza’s new club finished 15th on the 18-team Primeira Liga log with 31 points in the 2021/22 season.
Andrew Kizito Luwagga and Alex Kakuba are the other Ugandan players that have played in the Primeira Liga before.
