Uganda Cranes midfielder Saidi Kyeyune is hoping that his exploits at StarTimes UPL side URA FC will land him a professional deal on the African continent or Asia.
Kyeyune who rejoined URA FC in 2017 from Proline FC where he had been loaned, has taken the 2019/20 season by storm, scoring seven goals and proving as many assists for the tax collectors.
That, in part, is down to his contribution this season. He has played more games this season than any other in his career and is the only player alongside Shafiq Kajimu in the URA squad to have featured in almost every game.
Naturally, performances have coincided with that continuity on the field of play. After overcoming a performance slump that followed a failed stint at professional football in South Africa, Kyeyune says this is the right time for him to hit the big stages.
“After this Covid-19, I have some deals outside Uganda,” Kyeyune exclusively told The Touchline Sports before he added “it will be either here in Africa or Asia.”
Kyeyune has previously tried out professional football in South Africa at Orlando Pirates together with Yasser Mugerwa before he came back to join Maroons FC.
