KCCA FC’s latest signing Stefano Mazengo has stated that he is ready to give his best and fight for a regular spot at the Lugogo-based club.
The midfielder was officially unveiled as a Kasasiro Boy on Sunday via KCCA TV’s Sunday TV show on Sanyuka TV, his unveiling causing quite a stir.
“I know there’s going to be a lot of competition but am here to compete. When I get my chance, I hope I do well so that I become a regular for the club,” Mazengo told KCCA TV.
“I know there are a lot of players better than me on the ball, off the ball, great passing range, but I will make sure I give my all at this club because I want to have a legacy.”
Mazengo has had a chance to train with KCCA FC since January 2019 and his skills impressed Mike Mutebi to sign him.
He is a product of the Kampala Kids League program where he played with current KCCA anchorman Gift Ali.
He can play as a central or a defensive midfielder and his acquisition gives Mutebi different options in the middle of the pitch.
Mazengo possesses good passing skills a trait that is key for any player at KCCA especially in the midfield.
He kicked off his career at Hellas Verona FC in Italy before joining Kampala Kids League in Uganda where he was between 2006 and 2009.
Between 2014 and 2016, he played for FC Leorvadia in the Netherlands. He also had a short stint at Deusto University FC in Spain.
In 2017, he moved to Don Vittorio FC and a year later he joined Sheffield Hallam University in the United Kingdom.
He later joined Sheffield FC Futsal team until 2019 and he decided to join KCCA FC to develop his football career.
He becomes KCCA’s third singing after the 13-time Uganda Premier League winners landing Ashraf Mugume and Charles Lwanga from Vipers and SC Villa respectively earlier in June.
