Mwesigwa elated after contract renewal



Uganda Cranes captain Andy Mwesigwa has spoken passionately about Shymkent and its people after the defender extended his contract with Khazakstan’s FC Ordabasy for one more year.

Mwesigwa agreed the deal at the weekend and it will see the former SC Villa player spend the third straight year at Ordabasy.

The defender is an influential player for Ordabasy and with the side looking to finishing in the top three in the Khazakstan league and winning a Cup so as to qualify for European football, they thought it wise to renew his contract.

The player himself didn’t differ, speaking passionately of his love for the place, fans and the club.

“I adapt myself well in Shymkent,’’ he said, adding,“I like people here, the city is nice, food is great, and I am very satisfied.

“Football here going up with big steps, and it's wish of many players around the world to come to play here.

“I don't feel here anymore like foreigner, I learned language, I know many people, and Shymkent is like my second home.’’

Mwesigwa added that apart from helping his club to succeess, his focus now is on to help Uganda attempt 2014 Brazil World Cup qualification.

Quite an attempt! Forget the Africa Cup of Nations which Uganda last qualified for in 1978. The East Africans, just like their Cecafa neighbours, have never made it to the World Cup.

The Cranes are second in their group on two points, an equal number behind leaders Senegal. Uganda’s next World Cup assignment is in Liberia on March 22. Angola complete the group. The group winners will progress to the next round of qualification.
