Uganda Cranes marauding left-back Mustafa have officially joined Major League Soccer side Montreal Impact.
Kizza signs a two-year deal which will run until 2022 with an option of renewal from KCCA FC.
“Montreal Impact announced on Monday the acquisition of Uganda international full-back Mustafa Kizza,” Montreal impact announced.
“From KCCA FC, in the Uganda Premier League, for two years plus three optional years. The deal will start on August 12,” they added.
Mustafa Kizza to remain in Uganda until December
However, Mustafa Kizza will remain at KCCA until December as he cannot complete the move now due to the coronavirus restrictions.
“Kizza will remain with his club until December, on loan from the Impact, because of the current Covid-19 situation.”
“So he will not be taking an international spot on the roster.”
“Montreal keep the option to call him back if the situation improves,” the statement further reads.
Mustafa Kizza praised
Montreal Impact sporting director Olivier Renard has praised the Ugandan star’s abilities after confirming the deal.
“We are really happy to acquire one of the best young players from Uganda,” Renard told the club’s portal.
“Mustafa Kizza is a modern attacking left-back with great crossing abilities and huge potential.”
“He is good on free-kicks and his height will also help on set pieces,” he added.
Mustafa Kizza has been a key member of the Kassasiro Boys side which lifted the Premier League title in 2019.
In the abandoned season which KCCA surrendered the title to Vipers FC, the full-back-cum winger scored five goals and gave 12 assists from 19 games.
During the Caf Champions League, where KCCA were eventually eliminated by Petro Atletico of Angola, Kizza scored two goals and made two assists in the campaign.
When KCCA conquered the 2019 Cecafa Kagame Cup in Rwanda, and for the second time in their history, the winger scored two goals.
He is therefore expected to take Major League Soccer by storm.
