Same old Express FC
For the past three seasons, Express FC have been starting new campaign with almost an entire new squad.
Previously, it was about the club’s administrative issues as they couldn’t hold on to their best players.
It should be noted that players like John Revita, Sadam Juma, Dan Sserunkuuma were all Express FC players.
Express FC finished ninth in the just concluded season after scoring 31 points from the 25 games played.
The six-time Uganda Premier League champions are targeting a number of players as they try to revitalize their squad.
These include SC Villa’s Ambrose Kirya and David Owori olus goalkeeper Joel Mutakubwa.
It is also understood that veteran midfielders Ibrahim Sadam Juma and Simon Sserunkuma may also join the Red Eagles.
Others include Godfrey Lwesibawa, Musa Mukasa and Steven Luswata who are also on verge of joining the Lugogo based club.
