Denis Rukundo Opens Up On Failed Return To Rwanda

Rukundo recently extended his contract with Police FC.

In July, Rwanda publication Newtimes, reported that Rayon were in “advanced talks” with the right-back as the side looked for a replacement for Eric Iradukunda.

Rukundo had previously featured in Rwanda for APR during the 2017-18 season.

“There were Lots of factors; They (Rayon) did not table the right offers,” Rukundo told The-SportsNation. “Personally, I needed stability, l when you are always on the move, it doesn’t allow you to grow as a footballer.”

After leaving KCCA FC in 2017, Rukundo went on to win the Rwanda League with APR.

“Life in Rwanda is no much different from here but they love their league more than in Uganda,” Rukundo added.

“You easily notice a match day, The derby there stadium almost fills up by two hours to kickoff. Life in general, the standards of living is a bit expensive compared to Uganda and the country is more organized.”

After Rwanda, Rukundo rejoined Uganda Premier League side last season to play for Police FC.

Last month, he renewed his one-year contract just like Bashir Kabuye, Mubarak Nsubuga, Johnson Odong and Yusuf Ssozi.

Rukundo explains: “Coach abdallah Mubiru and his technical team explained to me about the project at the club and the role I would play which I gladly welcomed.”

Police FC has so far signed Tonny Mawejje, Eric Ssenjobe, Hassan Muhamood, Arnold Ssembuya, Frank Zaga Tumwesigye etc and are chasing the signature of Godfrey ‘Jajja Walu’ Walusimbi.

“Personally, I am looking for a very much improved performance, which will see me get more assists and goals for my club. Who knows we have CHAN coming ahead and other qualifiers.

“We will push ourselves until the last day. We are giving the big boys of the championship a run for their money. In fact I am excited for this forth coming season.”
