Nasasira was among the six youngsters who were promoted to the KCCA senior team three years ago.
However, two of his then teammates have made big moves whereas his career took what looked like a downturn.
The six who were unveiled with pomp and much anticipation in February 2017 were Allan Okello, Mustafa Kizza, Nasasira, Herbert Achai, Julius Poloto and Peter Magambo.
Noel Nasasira’s promotion
The youngsters were promoted after they had a successful time with the U17 side but Kizza was returning from a loan stint with Maroons FC.
Two of Nasasira’s teammates in Okello and Kizza have made big-money moves after joining Paradou AC of Algeria and Montreal Impact respectively.
However, Nasasira since then joined Fufa Big League side Ndejje University FC where he was named the 2017/2018 Most Valuable Player (MVP).
Nasasira not contented with lack of playing time
According to Noel Nasasira, if he was trusted with enough playing time, he would go on and become a superstar.
“If I was trusted and given enough playing time like it was with the other players, I would have even surpassed the heights of the likes of Okello and Mustafa have reached, you never know,” Noel Nasasira said.
“But anyway, it happens in big teams, especially basing on the position I was playing.”
“There were the likes of Robert Ssentongo, Geoffrey Sserunkuma and Derrick Nsibambi at the time, I might have come at a wrong time I guess.”
“I lost confidence and honesty with myself. I failed to understand who truly I was in terms of my capabilities.”
“I lost belief, most especially when I failed to command playing time and ended up not lifting myself up,” he added.
Last year, the forward joined Premier League side Kyetume FC but he did not command a regular starting position.
He only scored a goal, in the 2-1 win over Busoga United, in nine matches he started.
