Meddie Kagere had his first opportunity to put to rest any doubts that coach Ze Maria has about him when he joined the team in training at Camp Toyoyo on Wednesday. Team manager Jolawi Obondo confirmed to Citizen Sports that Kagere is now a member of the club again.
“Kagere is definitely back in the team after passing medical and physical tests and we are glad to have him back. We hope he will retain the form he displayed last year that also helped us clinch the league title unbeaten and for the third year running,” Jolawi confirmed.
The 29 year old Uganda-born Rwandan scored 11 goals in the KPL in 2015 including an exquisite piece of skill against Nakuru All Stars that was good enough to be voted goal of the year. He left in December after the club could not meet his salary and bonus demands.
He will now be called upon to partner with the other Rwandese striker Jacque Tuyisenge. Variously nicknamed Lwanda Magere and also Pacman, Kagere offers Kogalo a second scoring option to reduce the dependency on Tuyisenge.
