Uganda Striker Sserunkuma Set for trials in Eastern Europe

Uganda Cranes striker Daniel Sserunkuma is excited about his intended trip to Eastern Europe for trials with three clubs.

The Gor Mahia FC player in Kenya’s Tusker Premier League told reporters that since it is a dream for every African player to play in Europe, he is glad he will get a chance to undergo trails in Eastern Europe.

Sserunkuma, the Kenya Premier League player of the year last season, said he has been invited for trials in Ukraine, Armenia and Belarus.

“I will be leaving in two weeks’ time. I am so eager to go and prove to the teams where I will have trials that I can comfortably play in their leagues,” said a confident Sserunkuma, who has netted one goal in three matches for the national team.

He revealed that British-born FIFA players’ agent Ken Joseph, a director with Emerging Talent Sports Management (ETSM), is the one working on his intended move to Eastern Europe.

Sserunkuma, who is a darling to the Gor Mahia fans, said the club has already cleared him to go for trials.

Speaking about former Cranes coach Robert ‘Bobby’ Williamson, who joined Gor Mahia two weeks ago and has won all his two games in-charge, the player said they are having a wonderful time.

“The whole team is enjoying what Bobby is taking us through. I will miss them for the few days I will be away in Eastern Europe,” he added.

Gor Mahia are currently top of the league table on 32 points, four ahead of second placed Thika United.

Sserunkuma, who joined Gor Mahia from another Kenyan side, City Stars, netted 17 goals in the league last season to finish second on the scorers chart.
