KCCA FC target Ashraf Mugume has opened up about his dream of joining the Lugogo based club.
The former Vipers SC player is expected to complete the deal once the transfer window opens after five years at Vipers.
The 21-year-old trained with KCCA at the start of the second round of the league and is expected to seal the move any time.
“Though I studied at St Mary’s Kitende, KCCA have always been my dream team since I was young, so I am trying to make my dream come true,” Mugume was quoted saying.
“I am very happy that people welcomed me at Vipers and they are very supportive and cooperative. I have felt like I have been there for so long.”
Who is Ashraf Mugume?
AshrafMugume was promoted to Vipers’ first team during the 2017/2018 season, after impressing and captaining Vipers’ development side St. Mary’s SS Kitende.
However, a breakthrough into first-team became difficult as he featured just twice for the club before he was sent out on loan to Police.
He was given more playing time at Police FC, finding the back of the net three times, while providing five assists, including the winner against Busoga United.
He was then recalled and included on Vipers’ squad for the 2019/2020 season but unfortunately, he was overlooked by former coach Edward Golola.
However, he feels he has not paid enough to the Venoms family which nurtured him from the time he was a student.
“Kitende is a place where I have grown up and has made me, so I feel have not paid back, and maybe in the future, I will play for them.”
“But I feel like I need to pay back because they have been there for me since school time.
“It is the team I have grown up seeing and it was my first club, so I would love so much to one day pay them but for now, I am focused on joining a new club and start a new chapter,” he noted.
Mugume can play at central or attacking midfield and on the left flank of the pitch.
