URA coach Sam Ssimbwa has told www.football-256.com that he wasn’t aware of the signing of Cromwell Abang Rwothomio.
“Cromwell who? Let me first find out from management but I don’t know that player,” Ssimbwa told this website.
URA confirmed the acquisition of the former Paidha Black Angels skipper on a one year deal ahead of the start of the 2018/2019 StarTimes Uganda Premier League second round.
URA CEO Ivan Kakembo confirmed that the club’s technical department convened and agreed on the signings they need and Rwothomio is one of them.
He leaves Paidha Black Angels after five years having joined the Zombo club from Pakwach Tigers in the 2014-15 season.
Despite scoring 11 goals in the first half the season, URA struggled in front of goal in many of games they played.
If accepted by Ssimbwa, Rwothomio will be a great addition to the URA attacking prowesses that has been blunt in the bigger part of the first round.
URA will be back in action on Friday when they host Vipers at Namboole, Ssimbwa won’t be on bench for that one as he starts a four-match ban.
Ssimbwa was banned by the UFA Match Integrity Committee, uttering tribal related statements after his team drew 1-1 with Kirinya Jinja SS in the StarTimes Uganda Premier tie played at the Mighty Arena in Jinja.
