Kyetume FC skipper Vincent Kayizzi has opened about the way KCCA FC senior players treated him as a youngster.
Kayizzi signed for KCCA FC as a student back in 2003 after showing signs of becoming a superstar in the future.
“I was excited because this was a dream come true,” Kayizzi was quoted by Daily Monitor.
“The junior players couldn’t mix with the stars. For two years, I only came in the evening to train and return to school.”
“We could only speak with senior players on the pitch,” he added.
By the time, KCCA FC had big names like Abubakar Tabula, Asan Bajope, Alimansi Kadogo, Noah Kasule and Tony Mawejje.
According to Vincent Kayizzi, the young players could not easily talk with the seniors.
“I am lucky to have played with seniors like them. I kept a close eye on how they practiced and it helped me grow,” he noted.
