Ssozi who joined Police from Paidha Black Angles one year ago, signed a two-year contract extension with law enforcers.
Despite interests from several clubs including Vipers SC, Ssozi decided to commit his future to the Abdallah Mubiru coached side.
“I hope for the best next season as I want to join the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) squad, pursue a deal outside Uganda and to do better than last season,” Yusuf Ssozi said.
Yusuf Ssozi needs more time with Police FC
The midfielder also said that he signed contract extension with the law enforcers because he needed more time with the team.
“It’s something I talked about with my agent. And I needed more time at Police because I didn’t feature in the second round due to a knee injury,” he noted.
The midfielder had a good time on the pitch during the first round of the 2019/20 season before he got injured and missed the second round.
“I missed a lot. I was called to the national team, named in the team of the first round by almost every journalist, so the injury was a major setback,” he further noted.
The Abdalla Mubiru side has already signed experienced Tony Mawejje, Hassan Muhamood and Eric Ssenjobe.
To Ssozi, Mawejje’s arrival will be a chance for him to learn a lot from his compatriot.
“Mawejje is a senior player and a legend so I expect to learn a lot from him and improve a lot in my career because we play in the same position,” the midfielder concluded.
Yusuf Ssozi has been nursing a niggling knee injury which has seen him miss a big chunk of the Ugandan Premier League, especially in the second half.
The last time the midfielder was involved was in the 2-1 loss against Wakiso giants on January 11.
