It is weeks to the start of the 2018/19 big league season and Wakiso Giants has been busy with friendly matches as their coach Ibrahim Kirya tries to find his starting team.
If the five trial matches the Purple sharks have held were a movie audition, then midfielder Feni Ali has surely earned a star role in the main cast.
The former URA and SC Villa player has been the fulcrum on which Ibrahim Kirya has built the squad that has so far won twice, drawn once and lost twice.
In an interview with Nile Post, the soft spoken player shared his targets with the Kamuli side.
“Am enjoying my stay at Wakiso giants I have my target. Wakiso is a very organized team. We get everything we need. secondly at wakiso giants there’s a lot of discipline among players. We love each other.
Many words have been said as to why I joined a big league side. But as a player I have a target and wakiso giants are an emerging force we shall prove them wrong, the friendlies we have had so far have been helpful to us’ .
The Purple Sharks came from two goals down to beat Sports Club Villa 3-2 in their fist friendly game, plummeted Entebbe select 3-0 before holding KCCA FC to a one all draw at the Startimes Arena in Lugogo.
