Murushid Juuko – Express FC focused to win UPL title

Express FC defender Murushid Juuko has revealed that they are determined more than ever to win the 2020/2021 title.

The Red Eagles started their campaign in the Ugandan Premier League on a high note as they are currently sitting sixth on the table.

They have garnered eight points from the four matches played so far.

According to the Uganda Cranes defender, they are psyched more than ever to resume action.

The league took a break for Christmas and New Year holidays and also paved the way for their national team to take part in the African Nations Championship (Chan) set for Cameroon.

“Am glad most of my mates returned in good health,” Juuko was quoted by the club’s official website.

“Now we need to catch up fast because we’ve got a lot coming.”

“Personally I am happy with how I’ve performed in the four games played so far and as a team, we’ve managed to improve in each game,” he added.

Juuko managed to cope up despite playing with different options at the back.

“So far I’ve managed to play alongside Enock Walusimbi and Isa Lumu but I can ascertain that both are capable,” Juuko noted.

Skipper Walusimbi started out partnering with Juuko on matchday one away against Onduparaka in Arua.

However, Walusimbi was sent off and in came Isa Lumu who has since formed a solid partnership while captain Walusimbi was moved to right back.

The team resumed training for league resumption on Friday.

On returning to training, Express coach Wasswa Bbosa also expressed optimism that they are destined for a great season.

Bbossa along with his assistants took the players through light paces with the tactician insisting the boys will get their form back in due course.

The six-time league champions are also unbeaten and hope to continue the run when the league resumes in February.
