Former KCCA FC defender Filbert Obenchan has spoke out on his departure from KCCA FC after six years of service at the Lugogo based side.
The 25-year old defender officially departed KCCA FC this week on Wednesday after the expiration of his contract.
In an exclusive interview with The-SportsNation, Obenchan reflected on his time at the 13-time league winners.
“My journey at KCCA FC, I must admit that it was a great one to remember, Obechan started.
“When I joined, I was a young lad and for me it was a pleasure donning the KCCA FC jersey at a young age.
“As young players with the likes of Mustafa Kizza, Allan Okello, Steven Sserwadda among others, we had the passion but belief wasn’t around but the Club helped sharpen us.”
Obenchan also says that his loan spell at UPDF FC helped him gain playing time hence appreciating advice from Mike Mutebi.
“I must admit good players are always on the field of play and that’s why I had to go out on loan to UPDF, I had a chat with the Manager then and he adivised me to go find playing time and from there I didnt look back.
“The loan spell at UPDF helped me to become a better player because I was subjected to playing regular football.
During his six years time with KCCA FC, Obenchan highlights playing in the CAF Champions League as his best moment.
“What I must say is I thank the Almighty God because its every player’s dream to play in the Champions league with Africa’s giants and my dream was achieved there.
“Playing those big teams, as players, we learn a lot and expose our talents and that’s my best experience during my time at Lugogo.
He added: “We shouldn’t be fearing these teams that much and my advise to fellow players at different clubs is they should always have believe.”
On his worst experience, Obenchan was quick to mention the previous 2020/21 season as his worst experience at the club.
“My worst experience at the club should be the previous season, things weren’t going well at the club because we were this club that is used to winning but for the past season everything wasn’t well for us and its really been hard for me and the team as well.”
Before the second round of the 2020/21 Uganda Premier League kick off, KCCA FC sacked head coach Mike Mutebi handed Obenchan his debut.
“In life we have to accept changes especially. We as players have to go with what’s at available and know what the new coach wants.”
On his next destination: “When my next journey is ready, the public will get to know.”
