Uganda Premier League side BUL FC have completed the signing of former MYDA FC striker Ibrahim Nsimbe on a two year employment contract amid various reports of uncertainty surrounding the move.
The uncertainty about whether the forward would make the move or not was informed by the fact that he still had two years left on his contract with MYDA and the Malaba side were destined to make it hard for his suters
The Jinja side however seemed assertive enough in their approach to get the deal beyond the line and finally get their man.
Nsimbe, who had an amazing season last term, where he established himself as the go-to-person for goals at MYDA was so instrumental to them and it’s his hardwork mentality that saw him score 10 goals in the league.
This was clearly an upgrade to the nine goals he scored for the club during his debut season in the FUFA Big League during the 2019/2020 as the club realised promotion to the topflight.
Following his unveiling as just the second signing at the club, the hugely optimistic Ibrahim Nsimbe took to the club media team, highlighting his delight to join the Eastern giants in an interview.
“It has always been a dream I have pondered as a player to play for a massive team like BUL FC and a coach with the kind of reputation like Alex Isabirye. I feel exceedingly honoured to have got this opportunity and my promise is to put in an effort and score as many goals as possible.” Said the forward.
He brings with him class and consistency in terms of his ability as a striker, at least using his time with MYDA as a benchmark. He will not only stage competition for positions but also offer Alex Isabirye’s side an offensive edge.
He joins goalkeeper Saidi Keni who earlier joined the club from SC Villa in a bid to strengthen the squad for the forthcoming season.
The club has further released a host of players as preparations for a transition appear to be underway. These are inclusive of: Musa Walangalira, Denis Okot, Jimmy Kulaba, Robert Mukongotya, Charles Ssempa, Elvis Kibaale as well as forward Anwar Ntege.
It is imperative to remember that the Busoga side finished eleventh in the Uganda Premier League the previous season and will be hoping for a positive shift in luck the season to come.
