Baden Mujahid will be tasked with the responsibility of captaining Arua Hill SC at Bar Okoro as they seek to seal three points in Paidha on Sunday.
With team Captain Caeser Okhuti ruled out due to groin injury, Baden has embraced his status as a leader and stepped in the skippership duties.
He is part of Hussein Mbalangu’s five-man leadership team, as the second in command, he captained the side on several occasions during the preseason and the Big League this season whenever Okhuti is substituted and he believes such experiences have built him enough to work responsibly in his senior’s absence.
“Our captain won’t be available and I have the responsibility to lead the team tomorrow and I will lead very well and we shall win at Paidha,” Baden confidently told club media after today’s training session at Barifa.
Baden has been a vital personality in the Leopards’ safari in 2020/21 Big League campaign, assisting three times since his Arua Hill debut in the league on 25th March 2021 against Blacks Power.
He is one of the promising talents that haven’t lived to expectation in sense of scoring, but the hardworking forward has continued to remain optimistic as he promises to break the curse starting this Sunday.
“ At times it happens in the game of football,” he responded when asked why the goals ain’t coming from him.
“Personally I’ve been on pressure because the coach has been demanding goals from me but Alhamdulillah I have three assists and I will build on that.
“Tomorrow is our last game, I promise if I don’t score two goals, I will make two assists and a goal at least I will build on that because of my target which I won’t tell you.” He concluded.
Baden also gave his views on the fixture against Paidha Black Angels with explanation of the team’s preparation ahead of the game.
“First of all I’ll say tomorrow we’re going to win because last time we wanted to win, it wasn’t our day, we managed to get a point at home which was fair and still we’re leading the table but I believe tomorrow we’re going for maximum points because the guys are very ready we are willing to go there and fight until the last whistle.”
