After being recognised as the Best Midfielder of the 2016-17 Uganda Premier League season, Sadam Ibrahim Juma dedicated the award to his former coach at Express FC, Matia Lule.
Saddam beat Muzamiru Mutyaba (now new teammate at KCCA) and URA FC’s Shafik Kagimu to the award at the ceremony held at Imperial Royale Hotel, Kampala.
“It’s a big honour to be recognised,” Sadam said. “Thanks to everyone who believed and still believes in me,” he added. “Thanks Coach Mathias Lule, Express FC and myself for this honour.”
Lule also had kind words for the midfielder and admitted that he deserved the award.
Saddam was the only player from the Red Eagles that won an award and also named in the Best XI of the campaign.
