Muhammad Shaban Optimistic After Lengthy Injury Layoff



Vipers Sports Club striker Muhammad “Jagasson” Shaban is positive about reviving his footballing career after nursing a longtime knee ligament injury.

The center forward has been on the sidelines since April 2019 going through an injury sustained while featuring for Moroccan based Raja Casablanca.

However, the 22-year-old Uganda Cranes forward is positive about the progress he has made and feels re-energised to restart his career ahead of next season kick-off.

In an interview with Vipers SC website, Shaban believes he won’t watch the 2020/21 season from the stands and expects to top the scorers’ chat next season upon return.

“I want to thank my teammates, the coaches and the club administration for the great work they have done for always having our backs. It was a tough season but with the help of God, we were crowned champions. We now focus on the next stage that’s the Caf Champions League and I will not watch football from the stands InshAllah,” he said.

He added, “I want the Top Scorer’s gong of the Uganda Premier League (UPL) and also help my team qualify for the group stages of the Caf Champions League, InshAllah.”

The striker has also promised to entertain the gallant fans of St Mary’s Stadium Kitende and vows to deliver to his expectations.

“The fans should forget the old me. There is a different Shaban coming. A better one who will play with more purpose and drive. I have kept them waiting because of injury but I am going entertain them. I promise to do my best for both club and country if I am recalled again, InshAllah.” Shaban noted.

Before joining Raja Casablanca, Shaban played for KCCA Football Club and Onduparaka FC.
