Kampala — Every football fan who attends the GTV sponsored National Super League can confess to knowing who the best player this season is. He has already made the headlines.
He is the Kampala City Council (KCC) FC playmaker Owen Kasule. When I met Kasule at his team's training ground at Lugogo, he looked visibly tired after a two hour training session but reiterated his desire to become one of the best.
"I have always (wanted) to play well and hope for the best. I hope to become a better player with time," Kasule said.
Kasule has also impressed Cranes coach Lazslo Csaba, who handed him a full debut at the recent Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup in Tanzania. The Hungarian-born German speaks highly of the young KCC midfielder.
"Owen (is) a very good player (with a) bright future. (He) needs to work a little harder," Csaba told Daily Monitor.
The KCC midfield maestro was the creative force as Uganda demolished Djibouti 7-0.
Veteran sports administrator Livingston Lajani likened him to 1980s midfield superstar Steven Bogere.
"Kasule is a player with great vision and enormous ability to pick out teammates," Lajani said.His vision on the ball, passing ability and selfless play has come in handy to aid KCC's chase for the elusive league crown.
