KCCA’s fifth signing ahead of the 2020/21 StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) season, Bright Anukani, is already looking forward to life at the 13-time national champions.
The 20-year old has been signed on a season-long loan from relegated Proline, with the Big League club saying they sent him to KCCA to continue his development.
Anukani, who was instrumental in Proline’s promotion to the Premier League in 2019, winning the Uganda Cup title and making a play-off finish in the Caf Confederation Cup, is a quality playmaker that can craft goals and score them.
“I feel happy about joining KCCA because it’s a big club,” he said, “Every player out there wants to play at a club like this.
“I feel comfortable playing in the attacking midfield, because I’m a creative midfielder and I score goals.”
The midfielder added: “I’m excited in playing all games, especially the Caf games because they will improve my career. I want to get into the group stages because when I was in Proline, I didn’t get there.”
Anukani, who has also had runs in the Cranes development side, including scoring twice and assisting thrice as Uganda won Cecafa 2019, tells KCCA fans to expect hard work from him.
He becomes KCCA’s fifth signing ahead of next season, the Lugogo side having secured former SC Villa starlet Charles Lwanga, Ashraf Mugume from Police, free agent Denis Iguma and Italian but Ugandan-bred Loro Mazengo.
