Of course, I had to work hard to seal this amazing opportunity and called upon the girl child to always work for such opportunities.”
“I am looking forward to having great success at my new home.”
She Corporates chairman Richard Kawere said that their main target was to help Karungi achieve her main goal of playing professional football.
“I am grateful that Vanessa has successfully sealed a move to Denmark.” She had a successful trial and we have not exchanged money with her new club. Our target was to help her achieve her maiden goal and so we had to sacrifice and facilitate someone from Copenhagen to come and see her.”
“If I was to compute what we have invested in her for the last eight years, I doubt that there is someone who can give us that money.” We wish her well, she has been a great player to us but it is time for her to have a new challenge.”
Karungi has also previously featured for Olila Girls High from 2016 to 2018 before returning to She Corporates.
