Former Masaza Cup golden boot winner Joseph Janjali has finally opted out of lower division football by joining Azam Uganda Premier League (UPL) side UPDF.
The forward, who has been featuring for Nyendo Diamonds in the Buganda Regional League, completed the switch on Tuesday as he reunites with former Buddu coach Steven Bogere.
“I decided to join UPDF because of the great relationship i have with Coach Steven Bogere,” Janjali told local website SwiftSports.
“I worked with him at Buddu during the 2016 Masaza cup triumph,” he added.
“I also wanted to take my football career to another level since i have nothing to prove in the Masaza cup tournament.
Janjali has won the Masaza Cup and the golden boot with Buddu and Gomba in 2016 and 2017 respectively.
