Ugandan goalkeeper Samson Kirya has admitted that he is happy to be back in action for SC Villa after being on the sidelines for over a year due to an injury.
Kirya tore a ligament towards the end of the 2017/18 season and missed most of the start of the current 2019/20 campaign.
“I am glad to be back,” said Kirya in a video on the club's official Twitter account.
“It has been quite a long time ever since I got injured. I have been out for over a year,” he added before thanking the Jogoos family for the support throughout.
“Back in training and I have trained for over a week now and I feel am getting back in shape again and I can’t wait to play again for this great club.”
Kirya, one of the highly rated and fast rising goalkeepers in the country was on the bench in the goalless draw at home to Vipers SC on Wednesday.
He was named the best goalkeeper of the season in the 2017/18 season.
