I Look Forward To a New Challenge – Saddam Juma

Out-of-contract KCCA FC midfielder Saddam Juma has confirmed that he will not be with the Lugogo-based side come next season.

Juma was among the players Mike Mutebi is said to have deemed as surplus to requirements.

The midfielder has said that he was last year asked by the club to renew his contract, an offer he turned down in the name of wanting a move away.

“The club approached me last year about contract renewal and we held talks but as an individual I need a new task” Juma told this website.

“The global pandemic has affected my next move but when all comes back to normal, I will let you know where I will be playing from.”

The experienced midfielder has also featured for Victoria University and Vipers.
