Amavubi stars Ugandan born striker Meddie Kagere has completed a $ 10,000 move to Albania’s top division club KF Tirana on a two-year contract.
The Albanian club, the most successful (with 49 major titles) in Albanian football confirms having signed the 26 year old striker.
Buy out Clause:
The Albanian club paid Kagere’s Rwandan club, Rayon Sports, $ 10,000 as a special fee to bail the player out of his remaining 9 months on the contract.
Kawowo Sports interviewed Kagere and he confirmed the development.
“As a professional player, my objective in life has been to keep in shape for any pending move. My agent flew out last week to complete the deal”, Kagere, who was born and risen in Entebbe town confirmed.
He has previously had trial stints with Lebanese side, Safa after his $150,000 reported move to Esperance hit a snag after the Tunisian club filed for bankruptcy.
Kagere studied at Kibuli secondary school and played in the Wakiso division one league with PPU f.c and Entebbe United (Victoria f.c).
He then helped Rukungiri club, Ruhinda secure qualification to the FUFA super league before he featured for Kinyara Sugar and later Mbale Heroes in the Uganda elite league.
Way out to Rwanda:
In 2008, Kagere left Mbale for another fresh lease of life in Rwanda. In Rwanda, he has featured for Mukura, Atraco, Police and lately Rayon Sports.
For his trickery and blistering pace on the wings with an odd eye for goals attracted Rwanda Football Federation to accord him citizenship in the land of 1000 hills.
He had a splendid performance at the 2011 Cecafa Tusker Senior Challenge Cup in Tanzania where he helped Rwanda reach the final against eventual winners Uganda.
Other FK Tirana Targets:
The Albanian club is in secretive talks with several other players in the CECAFA region with Ugandan brothers, Francis Olaki and Emmanuel Okwi linked to the side.
Cranes Vice Captain, Okwi has since come out to openly rubbish the links to Tirana.
“I am happy at my club Yanga and still have contractual obligations to fulfill”, Okwi reveals to Kawowo Sports.
