Mugalia back at Sofapaka
Bob Mugalia is back at Sofapaka.
The Harambee Stars striker was initially left out of the side after failing to agree an extension to his contract which expired at the back end of the 2012 season.
Earlier coach David Ouma had said that the club had let him go and that they would be looking elsewhere for striking options. It now seems though that they have agreed on a deal and Ouma has welcomed him back.
“Bob Mugalia is back in the squad after agreeing a new contract. His last deal expired at the end of 2012 and after we failed to agree on terms, it was agreed that he could speak to other clubs.
“He has even spoken with AFC Leopards but it seems they did not agree. Mugalia is a part of the Sofapaka fraternity and when he came back and agreed to terms, we took him in. He is a quality striker and has something to offer the club so we welcome him back,” Ouma said.
On his part, the striker was happy to be back home.
“It is good to be back here, it is the only club for me. Last season was not the best for me because I did not score many goals so that is my target for this year,” he said.
“I hope to score goals and help the club win a trophy.”
Mugalia will get his chance to impress when Sofapaka take part in the Kenya Power Charity Cup over the weekend.
