Uganda Premier League side URA FC has officially unveiled left-back Derrick Ndahiro on a three-year employment contract.
The confirmation comes a month after Ndahiro had made mention on his social media platforms that the Tax Collectors were his next destination, something that sparked outrage from the hierarchy at the club.
The result was uncertainty about whether the deal was to ever be completed or not. Luckily enough for him though, the deal has been finalized.
Ndahiro, who started his football career with Kamwokya side Riverside Forest Park FC before making a move to SC Villa was hugely impressive in the previous campaign for the Jogoos.
He comes to a team where competition for positions is huge relative to the talent at disposal and he seems to be ready for the challenge.
He spoke about this during his interview:
“URA FC is one of the best clubs in the country and at such a stage, competition is always expected. I will work hard to make myself a mainstay in the team but also improve my game further.”
He is viewed to be Brian Majwega’s replacement but before him awaits a huge task of playing at the CAF Confederations Cup with club legend Simeone Masaba taking charge on an interim manager.
Ndahiro becomes the second signing at the club after Simon Baligeya but claims are that the Tax collectors have already signed goalkeeper James Alitho and Winger Kabon Living despite the fact that the two haven’t been unveiled.
They have also released two players following contract expiry who include: Veteran midfielder Ivan Ntege and Micheal Birungi while goalkeeper Hannington Ssebwalunyo joined BUL FC on loan.
