Lukwago Feels Kiira Need More Investment

LukwagoKiira Young chairman Jimmy Lukwag says that the club needs alot of investment to make a statement in the FUFA Super League

The Kiira based side will resume their campaign of winning the 2013/14 FSL season travelling to Mbale on 7th February to face CRO and have so far not yet signed a player of note, which according to Lukwago, is dangerous for the club yet Uganda Cranes duo Julius Ntambi and Richard Kasagga are on their way out of the club after attracting interest from a host of South African clubs.

“Kiira need to sign more players if they are to feature prominently in the FSL because it is a difficult league, he told Red Pepper Online Sport at Namboole Stadium on Monday.

“Our club is a good side with a good coach but as we have seen in previous years, it is not a guarantee to rise and stay in the league. It is difficult business, he added.

They are courting former TP Mazembe midfielder Patrick Ochan after capturing Masaka LC midfielder Sam Kayongo for Shs 2m last week alongside SC Villa’s Moses Ndawula.

Long-term project

Two years back when Kiira alongside Entebbe Young FC advanced to the super league after topping their groups in the promotional competition, the 34 year-old real estate dealer revealed that he invested sh300m in the promotional campaign.

He is looking at signing more players in their second year of topflight football. “That’s the only way I can remain in the top competition.” He sent out a warning to the traditional giants. “Teams like URA are winning trophies but they have nothing to show in quality. I will give them a run for their money.”

Lukwago’s dream to have a team in the top league goes back to 2005. But this was with another side Kiira FC. “I felt that I could lift the team. But when I asked for shares in the team, older officials laughed at my request. That was when I decided to start my own team.”

Saints test

The side coached by former Kyambogo University tactician Haruna Kebba face FUFA Big League big shots The Saints FC on Wednesday morning in their final half-season buildup at Namboole Stadium.
