Tooro United is planning to offload several first-team players in the coming transfer window in a bid to build a new squad. However, there are two players they should not just let go.
The Club’s Director Alice Namatovu is keen on revamping her squad when the transfer window opens up after a number of the current squad player’s future remains uncertain.
This follows the club’s administrative and technical recent wrangles which involved transitions to players’ demonstrations over unpaid arrears, many of whom she believes are surplus to requirements.
The club is believed to be interested in the signature of Uganda Cranes midfielder Tony Mawejje even though he has already refuted the claims as reported by Football256
But, there are two players that Tooro United are not looking to offload however much they have been linked with transfers away from the club. They are Mehdi Kibirige and Yafesi Mubiru.
Kibirige has been linked with a move away from Tooro United, but the “23-year-old is an important part of the club’s plans” and is believed to be settled.
While he embodies the characteristics of the next big thing in Uganda’s goalkeeping, he has also been a very instrumental player in Tooro United’s current season.
Kibirige will be much remembered for saving two penalties in a single game as Tooro United edged KCCA FC 1-0 and he has helped his side pickup crucial points in intense games as he always turns up for the big moments in the game.
Yafesi Mubiru, on the other hand, has been Tooro United’s most outstanding player since the departure of Allan Kayiwa who left for Vipers. He is currently the club’s leading top scorer with 6 goals. Any new changes should surely be built around a player of his caliber.
Tooro United should surely fight tooth and nail to keep the two and should also hold on tight on other key members of their squad including, Mike Kawooya, Isa Mubiru, and Godffrey Lwesibawa.
