Masiko: Leaving KCCA FC was the toughest decision of my life

Vipers newly signed striker, Tom Masiko, has paid a glowing tribute to his former club, KCCA FC, where he launched his career six years ago.

The attacking midfielder had been a subject of a protracted contract saga towards the end of the season that linked him to his current station as he and KCCA FC denied. 

He is rumored to have shifted base at a cost of seventy million shillings. 

The player remarks with emotion that the decision to leave KCCA FC was the toughest he has ever made.

"This has been the toughest decision of my life," Masiko said adding that "I always envisaged leaving on the right terms, in the right way and at the right time - and that is now."

In the father's footsteps 

Masiko's father - Charles Baker Masiko - is a former club legend who was recently coronated the life captain.

Masiko says that he cherished the chance to play at the same club where his father left an indelible history and expressed his gratitude for setting the path for the lineage to follow.

"Almost 20 years after my father retired from football, I couldn't resist the best opportunity to walk through his footsteps after completing my secondary education at Kibuli." 

Best partner

Masiko was not short of praises for his former teammate, Ivan Ntege, with whom they spent about three years in the midfield. 

He also holds a special place for Police FC coach Abdallah Mubiru who nurtured him at Kibuli SS and later promoted him to KCCA FC.
