Uganda Cranes striker Brian Umony has hailed the level of professionalism at Azam FC asserting that the club is exceptional when it comes to player treatment.

Speaking to BBC Sport in the aftermath of Azam’s Vodacom Premier League triumph, the ex-KCC FC star revealed that he has never been treated so well at any club than at the Tanzanian outfit.  

“This is a professional club, very organized with good players,” he told BBC Sport.

“They treat me very well here, I have been elsewhere in South Africa, in the United States, in Vietnam and Uganda but here it is exceptional, I am very happy with what I am being offered.”

Umony is amongst the top foreign based players at the club dubbed as Matajiri wa Tanzania – Swahili for the rich spenders of Tanzania. Others are Ivory Coast duo of Kipre Tchetche and Kipre Balou.

The club, which is owned by billionaire industrialist Salim Bakhresa, ended the dominance of Simba and Yanga – who have been alternating champions since 2000 – to win their maiden title unbeaten

Umony joined Azam from KCC FC in January 2013 and has been an integral part of the club. Before settling at Azam, the dreadlocked striker had stints in USA, South Africa and Vietnam.
