Despite his fine start of life at SC Villa, forward Bashir Mutanda desires to up his game, better himself but also see that he plays a part in reviving the club’s glory days.
Mutanda is in the form of his life after scoring in six sequential league games for the 16 time league champions to take his tally to nine.
Currently leading the scorers’ chart, Mutanda has scored for SC Villa in all their last four games, the last one being a brace against city rivals Express as they won the tie 2-0.
“It’s a proud moment scoring two goals against our arch rivals,” Mutanda told a local online publication Kawowo Sports.
“But the most important thing is that the team has picked points since we were desperate for such a result.”
“As a player, I want to keep improving every day. The form is down to hard work, team work as well as the technical team,” he added.
Mutanda zeroed down to former Cranes coach Moses Basena who gave him a chance to play during his tenure at SC Villa as well as coach Charles Ayiekoh who handled him at Kirinya Jinja SSS.
“Coach Basena gave me chance to play here and am grateful whenever I don the Villa Jersey. Special thanks to him as well as coach Ayiekoh who has been so supportive in my career so far,” he said.
