Bashir Ssekagya, a former KCCA FC JT shot-stopper joined Vipers SC in June 2018 from UPDF FC. He was also loaned out to Proline FC at the start of the current season but was taken back by his parent club.
The Venoms splashed out a hefty sum to beat off competition to secure Ssekagya’s signature from UPDF FC as a replacement for Ismail Watenga who had shocked the upper echelons at the St. Marys.
The Injury struggles
The goalkeeper has since struggled to replace the output of his predecessor, with a combination of injury problems, and competition for places being his biggest undoing. Questions over his attitude could be the other concern that has seen the player fail to repay the Venoms’ faith.
After the tall-and-thin shot-stopper picked up the latest in a series of his knee injuries, Vipers confirmed that their struggling goalkeeper had been ruled out of action for a period not less than 10-months.
This, as subsequently calculated by the reliable Touchline Sports’ Ronald Yiga means that, upon his return to the pitch, Ssekagya will have missed like 53 games since completing his move to Vipers 2 years ago.
Ssekagya on the move?
The 22-year-old’s widely-publicized injury struggles at Kitende have inevitably resulted in speculation that the Venoms could simply attempt to cut their losses by pushing Ssekagya on to the highest bidder.
And as outlined above, if the latest speculation stemming from a source which preferred anonymity today is to be believed, then any interested party could yet strike a bargain for the custodian.
