Our latest signing Gadafi Wahab who joined from Wakiso Giants on a two years deal has said returning to the region is usual but playing for Arua Hill is business unusual.
The 21-year-old has already joined the club preseason training, with having participated in a couple of sessions, has revealed to club media his observations.
“As a player it’s important to work with a teacher who understands you so as to develop and the home factor, I played home before and know how it feels to play Infront of your own family,” Wahab said.
“But here is not business usual because of the ambition, and the vision the chairman bears for the club and how he wants to transform football in around and see the club develop, which highly calls for higher level of performance which of course is manageable,” he added.
The midfielder continued: “I have a great relationship with the hierarchy, the CEO and PRO which is important in my quest to help achieve our common goal because we’ve worked together before and so we’ll just continue from where we left.”
“I’m grateful to the fans for embracing me and trusting me, their support is massive and surely I will pay them back with positive results.
Wahab spoke of his relationship with teammate Ibrahim Faizul alongside whom he played at Onduparaka before moving together to Wakiso Giants in July 2019.
“I’ve played a lot of games with Ibrahim and we grew up together right from our days of Onduparaka to Wakiso Giants, we understand each other very well, I don’t think I have enjoyed playing in the midfield with anyone else apart from him, maybe I am yet.”
Wahab made 21 appearances in two seasons for Wakiso Giants, scoring four times, and contributing 11 assists. He has said replicating the same is one of his dreams but would want to add trophies too.
“I desire to play in Europe one day, but for now I hope to continue assisting usually, score and win titles for the club.”
Wahab, stands at 5ft 6ins and trained for Uganda U-20 that featured in the COSAFA invitational tournament in 2017 though he didn’t make the final list.
