Viane Sekajugo still harbours hope of a return to fitness before the 2019/20 officially closes.
The attacker got injured in the 2-1 win over Maroons in February and his attempted come back against Busoga United was cut short with the medical team ruling him out for the rest of the season.
However, with football suspended due to the Coronavirus pandemic and government’s directive to suspend all sporting events, Sekajugo believes he could be fit by the time football could return.
“The lockdown is a blessing in disguise in regards to my recovery process,” he said. “It’s frustrating being out but am getting better and hopefully, could be available for some games before season ends,” he added.
With the Purple Sharks still in the Stanbic Uganda Cup with a game against URA in the round of 16 at stake, the former Ondu forward says it would be nice if the team got as far as possible.
“It’s a cup competition and anything can happen. The target is to go far as a possible and I wish I could be back in time especially for this competition.”
Sekajugo is the club’s leading goal scorer this season with 11 goals in all competitions.
