Dissan Galiwango beats Zaidi Byekwaso

Express Football Club captain Dissan Galiwango has agreed on terms with newly-crowned Uganda Premier League champions Vipers Sports Club.

Galiwango has been the most engaged party since the abrupt end of the 2019-20 football season because of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19).

With several reports linking the left back-cum-winger away from Wankulukuku, it has been revealed that after the player turned down an offer from Express following futile meetings with the chairman Kenneth Kiryowa Kiwanuka and new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Isaac Mwesigwa.

First, the 13-time Uganda Premier League champions KCCA had openly expressed interest in the player who scored 6 goals last season.

Then arrived the moment when he was linked to Wakiso Giants Football Club after a photo with Musa Atagenda, one of the directors at the Purple Sharks went viral.

But, the player himself at some stage boldly indicated he would be staying at Wankulukuku, at least for another season.

Kawowo Sports has, however, established that the player has concluded talks with Vipers.

The Kitende based club who are now building a formidable squad for next season domestically and CAF Champions League, are believed to be a mission possible to recruit as many good players as possible.

Galiwango is comfortable as a left-back and can be deployed as an attacking midfielder on the left side.

Last season, he managed six goals for Express Football Club in the Uganda Premier League and two in the Stanbic Uganda Cup.

He is expected to beef up the left-back department where Aziz Kayondo was the first choice last season ahead of Farouk Musisi.

By the time of the league stoppage (because of the Coronavirus pandemic), Vipers were top of the 16 team log with 54 points off 25 matches.

The Venoms were thus declared champions for the 2019/20 season basing on the force majeure factor and will thus represent the country at the CAF Champions League.
