ATRACO have dismissed talks that they are close to signing Ugandan striker Peter ‘Crouch’ Ssenyonjo from Police FC.
Ssenyonjo was recently quoted in the Ugandan media to be favoring a move to Atraco and further claimed that he had had talks with Atraco coach Sam Timbe.
But Atraco’s Vice President Issa Ngeze has underlined that with competent strikers like Hamis Kitagenda, Andre Lomami and Jean Lomami, the club don’t need a striker.
“We have not sanctioned any move for Ssenyonjo; for now, we are looking for a goal keeper,” Ngeze said.
The taxi-men club recently lost their first-choice goalie Jean Luc Ndayishimiye ‘Bakame’ to APR.
Bakame was one of four signings made by the defending league champions last week. Others were Omar Hitimana (Uganda’s KCC), Rodriquez Murengezi (Mukura) and Rayon Sport’s Albert Ngabo. Ngabo joined on a two-year deal worth Rwf11.3m.
