Shafik ‘Bachu’ Batambuze, a Ugandan left footed footballer has agreed personal terms at Kenya Premier League club, Tusker F.C.

Previously featuring for Sofapaka and lately Western Stima F.C, the roving left back joins Paul Nkata, another Ugandan, who is the head coach at the club.

Before he ventured in the murky waters of the KPL, Batambuze played for Simba and SC Villa in the Uganda Premier League.

He confidently attested to Kawowo Sports about the task at hand as a lee way to being summoned to the Uganda national team;

I will continue to inject in more hours at training. I need to play regularly with great displays. I am targeting being recognized back at home for a national team call up.

Despite his diminutive stature, Bachu as he is fondly tagged has the engine of a cheetah, the fear-less mentality of an angry and hungry tiger ready to pounce on a prey, during matches.

His character is coupled with a descent first touch on the ball, awesome dribbling abilities and that eagle eyed instinct to play the long ball with accuracy of a compass instrument plugged on Pope Francis’ plane.
