Uganda Cranes defender Murushid Juuko has completed a move to the Uganda Premier League side Express FC.
According to reports, Juuko has signed for the Red Eagles on a one-year deal.
However, he will be allowed to leave the club if he gets an offer from a foreign club.
Juuko’s decision to sign for Express has left Ugandan Premier League (UPL) champions Vipers SC and last season’s winners KCCA FC in shock as they were both eyeing the services of the player.
The deal will see them get 20% of the transfer fee if he manages to get a move abroad.
Juuko’s deal good for Wasswa Bbosa
The arrival of Murushid Juuko will be a great boost to coach Wasswa Bbosa, who is expecting a competitive 2020/21 UPL season.
“We all know clubs are re-organizing themselves and that they will be competitive next season,” Wasswa Bossa was quoted by the club’s official website.
“But actually if anything, we have already done our homework on all the teams. So I would say we are braced up for any team that will come our way.”
Murushid Juuko has previously played for Victoria University, Vipers Simba SC of Tanzania, and Wydad Casablanca.
He becomes the fifth signing for Express after Godfrey Lwesibawa, Mahad Yaya Kakooza, Charles Busingye, and John Byamukama.
The six-time league champions finished the abandoned league in the ninth position with 31 points, after managing nine wins, four draws, and 12 defeats.
After the 2019/20 struggles, the Wankulukuku-based side went on to release 18 players who they felt were surplus to requirements.
Those released were Tonny Kyamera, Joshua Adea, Mohammed Yiga, Emmanuel Bafoe, Martin Kizza, Joseph Zziwa and Hamis Batega.
Others are Andrew Kiwanuka, David Kakeeto, Hamdan Nsubuga, Axel Konan, Lawrence Kigonya, Dennis Sserukwaya, Peter Mutebi, Isaac Doka, Shafiq Avemah, Baker Lukooya and Idris Kabonge.
