Moses Okello, a Ugandan born midfielder is set for a trial stint in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
Okello traveled to this vast central African country over the week on particular invitation of Lubumbashi based FC Saint-Éloi Lupopo.
The trial will be conducted at the Stade Kibassa Maliba in Lubumbashi city and Okello is determined to give his best display throughout the period of stay.
“I traveled well to Lubumbashi and all is set for the trials. I remain focused and determined to give 100 percent with the best hopes of getting a professional contract” Okello spoke to Kawowo Sports on Tuesday.
He has previously played at KCCA (2011-2013), CRO (2013-2014), The Saints (2014-2015), Simba (2015-2016), Water (2016-2017), Kyetume (2017-2018) and lately Somalian army outfit FC Heegan (2018-2021).
Okello’s experience has always witnessed him play in the CECAFA club cup (Kagame cup), CAF Champions League (against Egyptian giants Zamalek) whilst he was also part of the Uganda U-20 national team in 2013-2014.
Besides exceptional tackling, Okello is also a good passer of the ball, strong in the air, aggressive and solid defensively as well as going forward.
The six feet player is also comfortable with both feet.
Uganda Cranes’ left back Joseph Benson Ochaya is the other Ugandan in the DR Congo top flight league with record champions, TP Mazembe.
