Police FC head coach Abdallah Mubiru has expressed the reason why he went on to sign Tony Mawejje.

According to the soft-spoken tactician, Tony Mawejje will help provide direction and add a competitive edge to his team.

The 33-year-old midfielder was unveiled on Tuesday after agreeing to pen a two-year contract.

The signing of the former Uganda Cranes international came just a few days after Mubiru had extended his stay with the club.

“He obviously adds experience to the team but he is also very competitive which will I expect to rub off on the rest of the team,” Abdallah Mubiru was quoted by Daily Monitor.

“Most importantly he’s been active and based on his immense ability should fit into our style of play,” he added.

Tony Mawejje happy at Police FC

After signing the contract, Tony Mawejje said that he is also happy to have returned to Police.

He therefore vowed to help Police to achieve their targets of competing for titles starting next season.

“Both me and Police were interested.”


“It is a club I have played for, have a good relationship with some top officials and the coach himself.”

“So I definitely love to come to play for and end my career there.”

“I come with no intention of going back to Cranes but to inspire the young ones instead.

“I’m so happy to be back at Police, the team which I played for in 2006 when we won Cecafa.”

“I’m happy to reunite with my family as I have so much history and great memories here.”

“I am looking forward to rekindling those memories,” he noted.

Tony Mawejje returned to Uganda after terminating his contract with Al-Arabi Sports from Kuwait.

He is expected to add some much-needed awareness in the Police midfield and will play alongside Yusuf Ssozi.
