Wasswa considering other options

Soccer. Wasswa is open to a move back to Europe and the rest of Africa but the latter, particularly South Africa, looks the more likely.
Uganda Cranes midfielder Hassan Wasswa is adamant he is playing locally for a limited time only.
The Cecafa captain, who led the Cranes to their unprecedented 13th regional title after the team overcame Kenya’s Harambee Stars 2-1 at Namboole last month, ironically signed a two-year deal with KCCA just recently.
But in a stance likely to rile his current employers, the imposing outfield player does not see himself stay the course at Lugogo, insisting he is only there to maintain fitness as his agent looks to secure him a move outside the country.
“The truth is I had to train,” Wasswa, whose time with Turkish side Kayseri Karabuspor was called off last year in unclear circumstances, told Saturday Monitor.
“And KCC was the best place for me.” This is Wasswa’s second stint at KCC, where he was before joining Ethiopia’s St George in 2007.
The player has since been to South Africa, where he played with FC Cape Town for a year, and Turkey, where he traversed three clubs in Karabükspor, Altay and Kayseri.
Despite being active with the national team, playing all Nations Cup and World Cup qualifiers, plus the Cecafa last year, Wasswa has not had competitive club football for over six months, until recently. “I know what I want, I know what to do to get it,” he stated his case, “I want to help KCC and also keep myself as fit as possible because soon I will be moving to a new club abroad.”
