Sustaining a long term injury to any player at a club is a always a big blow as it calls for a process to get back to the pitch.
This time it has been Express FC’s forward George Senkaaba who has almost spent the whole season sidelined.
The forward got injured in a Uganda Premier league game against Kitara FC at Kavumba, and he has been out for the rest of the season.
Before his set back, the former SC Villa forward was the man to watch for the Red Eagles, as he had scored five goals in the opening games of the season.
“I must say I had a lot of improvement with my injury recovery process, Senkaaba told Express media.
He added, “Before the lockdown happened, I was certain to play a game or two before the end of the season.”
Despite missing out on almost a full season, Ssenkaaba is positive that he will bounce back stronger next season.
“But I will now focus on next season and bounce back stronger otherwise I urge everyone to sanitise and stay safe.”
Recently, FUFA called off league games after President Museveni announced a 42-days lockdown in the bid to arrest the surging numbers of Covid19 infections in the country.
Just like last season when Vipers SC won the StarTimes Uganda Premier League through a boardroom decision with a few games left, Senkaaba’s Express FC could be crowned champions in a similar fashion.
