The mass exodus at Uganda Premier League side Police FC has seemingly intensified with the latest to join or probably about to join this ever-so-elastic list being the club topscorer from the 2020/21 season Ben Ocen.
The forward has been a free agent following the expiration of his employment contract that has since seen his allegiances swiftly change from the Cops to proposedly Rwandan side Musanze football club.
According to a credible source in Rwanda, the 27-year-old’s two-year deal has already been tabled by his soon-to-be bosses and is only waiting for a signature.
It is imperative to also remember that prior to these recent developments, Ocen had been reluctant to accept the new contract prepositions from Police FC in anticipation of a move to what was then reported to be Rayon Sports.
The gesture for Ocen to turn down the offer from the Cops hasn’t been perceived well with the fans who have since accused him of being greedy and turning his back to the only home that has made him this much prized hot cake on the continent.
In all honesty, the pace-oriented striker massively impressed with Police FC last season, finding the back of the net twelve times to help them finish sixth on the topflight log and amassing a maximum of 40 points out of 27 games.
His five goals in the Stanbic Uganda Cup also can’t go without mention, therefore implying that he will be a guarantor of goals for Musanze in the event that the deal is completed.
His interplay with fellow forward players along with his hold-up play and ball retention skills might work to provide a shot at redemption for the Rwandan side whose fall from grace has been rapid but unprecedented.
