Denis Amadile, 18, is an offensive midfielder whose first major – the copa coca cola championship in 2016 (held by Teso College, Aloet in Soroti) left him yearning for more glory.
Soft spoken off the field of play, Amadile’s character is complete reciprocal once he steps foot on the playing turf.
He is lively, quick thinking, diligent, blessed with an array of trickery skills on the ball, an awesome first touch, efficient passer of the ball and a team player that every football coach would recommend to have on his team regardless of the opposition.
Delivered 18 years ago to Ivan Bolingo and Harriet Sanyu, in Jinja, Amadile hails from a relatively big family of nine where he is the third born.
Throughout the course of the interview, Amadile keeps heaping special praise to the mother who has seen him through every thick and thin.
Amadile currently features at Kampala regional outfit, FC Spartans, a club that he boldly attests has prepared him for future engagements and tasks ahead.
In fact, he envisages the future beyond where the obvious thoughts and eye would reach.
First of all, I want to thank God for the wonderful gift (talent of playing football) that He gave me. I thank the people in my life who have promoted me since I was young. I look forward training well, playing for the top flight clubs in the country and as well, the national team (Uganda Cranes) before I will turn professional in a top league in Europe.
For starters, Amadile was part of the all-conquering 2016 Kibuli S.S squad that lifted the national schools copa coca cola championship in Soroti.
The same team had the likes of KCCA’s Mustapha Kizza, Julius Poloto and Allan Okello among others.
The offensive midfielder sings praise of Lugazi born midfielder Ali Feni and KCCA’s creative gem, Muzamiru Mutyaba for the inspiration towards his personal career.
I have always looked to the way Feni (Moses Ali) and Muzamiru Mutyaba play. They make football look so simple a task. I want to emulate them and achieve what they have done in their respective careers.
Globally, he loves the way Spanish international Andreas Iniesta takes on the opposition with simplicity but efficiency.
Amadile has recently attracted the keen scouting eye of FIFA approved agent Abraham Luzzi.
Luzzi believes Amadile is the best talented player in the country at the moment and hopes he will come of age;
Amadile is a good player. So talented and very disciplined. He has a bright future ahead of him. It is just a matter of time before he breaks the ice.
According to Tendo Nictor Musoke, a former footballer with Kisugu United, City Lads (KCC Youth), FC Greifensee (in Switzerland) and Aldies (Kansanga United), also a technical advisor -cum-media manager with Spartan F.C, the teenager has what it takes to play for the national team in two to three years.
He describes the midfielder in superlatives;
He (Denis Amadile) is a midfield schemer (Omuleebeesi), the Xavi Hernandez style. He has good ball control, great passer of the ball and intelligent at dictating the tempo of the game. He surely has a good future if well handled
Recently, he was signed by Ssingo Ssaza team in the Airtel Masaza tournament after a successful script with Bugerere the previous year.
