Montreal Impact announce today the acquisition of 20 year-old Ugandan international left-back, Mustafa Kizza from Kampala Capital City (KCCA FC).
The deal for two years plus a three year option, begins August 12. The player will remain on-loan at his Ugandan club until December due to the current Covid-19 situation, but Montreal keeps the option to call him back earlier if the Covid situation improves.
“We are really happy to acquire one of the best young players from Uganda,” said the Montreal Impact sporting director Olivier Renard. “Mustafa Kizza is a modern attacking left-back with great crossing abilities and huge potential. He is good on free-kicks and his height will also help on set pieces.”
The 20-year-old has been playing with KCCA FC, one of Uganda’s most successful clubs, since 2017. In the 2019-20 season, Kizza played 19 games, scoring five goals and adding 12 assists mainly from left-back. He also started nine CAF Champions League game with his club in 2019 and 2020, recording four goals and four assists, and in 2019 scored the winning goal in the CECAFA Cup Final for Central and East African clubs. It was the first time for 41 years KCCA had triumphed in the competition.
