DAVID GOMBE

URA FC skipper Shafik Kagimu is unsatisfied that his team did not accomplish their targets during the 2019/20 Uganda Premier League season.

The revenue collectors finished fifth on the UPL log with 40 points collected in 25 games.

“We wanted to improve on our league position during the campaign since we had finished third in the previous season.”

“We had an opportunity to achieve our target in the remaining five games but the pandemic hit us all unexpectedly.”

“Its unfortunate, we failed to attain our target but then this all goes back to Allah’s decision because he is always the master planner in everything.”

The skipper lauded the federation for the bold decision taken despite having come at the expense of his targets.

“Everything in the world has got guidelines or rules that govern and run it.”

“The pandemic has hindered every sector, just like in my Islamic religion, Muslims can’t access mosques for prayer due to this terrible situation.”

“I believe this was the best decision from the people who run game in the country to end the season.”

“Vipers were deserved winners because they had accumulated more points than all of us and so I congratulate them for the achievement.”

The midfielder also highlighted on what transformed their performance during the second round of the season

“We had a poor start to the campaign but we came back stronger during the second round of the season. We corrected our first round mistakes and improved in the second part of the season.”

Kagimu’s prayer is to see the joy and happiness return to the sports fraternity after the coronavirus pandemic that has wrecked havoc globally.
