Management of Gomba Ssaza Football Club has announced striker Isaac “Falcao” Ogwang as their first official signing for the 2020 Masaza Cup season.
Gomba Technical Director Felix Kawooya Ssekabuuza made the announcement on Monday, 18th May 2020 after the lethal forward agreed to put pen to paper for a one year deal.
“We have signed Isaac “Falcao” Ogwang for a period of one year. He is a proven center forward whom we believe will deliver the goods home as Gomba Lions works for the record breaking 5th title” Kawooya disclosed to Kawowo Sports.
Ogwang makes a return to Gomba Ssaza having duly served last season during the disastrous epoch where the Lions failed to progress past the group stages.
“I am happy to return to Gomba. Last season, I scored five goals. My target will be to double the figures. My main duty once on the field of play is to score goals. I will do exactly that” Ogwang hinted of his mission at hand this season.
The lanky fast paced forward is nicknamed Falcao after Colombian center forward Radamel Falcao García Zárate who is currently employed by Turkish Süper Lig club Galatasaray.
