Speedy striker Musa Esenu has returned to BUL FC on a two year contract from Rayon Sport of Rwanda.
Esenu played for BUL for three years before leaving for the Rwandan club in January 2022.
As a key member of the team, he guided the Eastern Giants to the first ever Uganda cup final in which he also served as a makeshift goalkeeper.
Excited and grinning from ear to ear, Esenu said;
“I am so privileged to have this opportunity to return to the place I call home. I had offers elsewhere but I said no, I have to return home because I feel very happy when here. This is where I feel the sense of belonging and peace, and I have a couple of colleagues here.”
“BUL gave me the opportunity to play abroad yet I still had a contract but when I talked to them, they allowed me to move and showcase my talent which I surely did. So, that is another thing I considered because they were there for me, they cared for me and they supported me unconditionally.”
“Now I come back with a bag of experience because I was a winner in Rwanda. So the experience I got elsewhere will help me work hard, put in all the efforts and work hand in hand with the technical team, and I believe we shall achieve more.”
“I have been keenly following the club ever since I left and the performance over the years has been impressive. So with the colleagues I have found here, and with a collective effort from everyone at the club, I believe we shall be champions Insha Allah.”
Coach Abbey Kikomeko Bogere said;
“I welcome Musa Esenu back home. He is one of the players I trained since senior one. I saw his potential when he was still young. Now that he is joining the big club BUL for the second time, he is most welcome.”
“He is one of the strikers that Uganda had some years back and I am certain he is coming back with goals.”
“Surely if Esenu is in good conditions, he can score goals. I cannot say that he will score such and such a number of goals or 100 but as long as he scores for me and we take the league, that will be enough and it is what I am after.”
“And I think he has come to score not to waste time. He has comeback to prove that he is Musa Esenu.”
“Therefore, his presence is going to beef up our striking line that already has the likes of Alex Kitata and Gerald Ogweti, and I think we are going to have a better competition.”
Esenu scored 21 league goals for Rayon Sport, with his seven goals in the peace cup helping the club win the competition in October last year.
He has previously played for Soana (now Tooro United), KCCA FC, Vipers SC and Busoga United in Uganda.
