Wakiso Giants FC have secured the services of right-back Geriga Atendele as one way of strengthening their squad in the second round of the league.
The Purple Sharks have confirmed the acquisition of the defender on a three-year deal from West Nile side Onduparaka FC.
Atendele becomes the first January signing for the club and also the first signing under new coach Charles Livingstone Mbabazi.
At Wakiso Giants, Atendele reunites with coach Mbabazi who also recently joined the Purple Sharks from Ondupataka FC.
“Wakiso Giants is delighted to announce the signing of Geriga Atendele from Onduparaka on a three-year contract, with an option to extend for a further year,” a statement on the club website reads.
“Atendele is an extremely talented young right back with all the qualities to quickly become a great player for this club,” Wakiso Giants CEO Sula Kamoga said.
He will battle for a slot at right-back with Muwadda Kateregga and Ibrahim Kiyemba.
“It’s very good opportunity for me as a player to join this ambitious club. I am so thankful for everything Onduparaka have done for me. But the chance of coming to this club is something I just couldn’t turn down.”
“I’m excited about working with Mbabazi and continue learning everything I can from such a great coach,” Atendele said after signing the contract.
