Scoring goals is the profitable business Geoffrey Sserunkuuma trades in – and that has seen him almost score against every team in the league over the past couple of seasons.
When he netted his seventh league goal this season against Bright Stars on Tuesday inside the first minute, Sserunkuma was sending a warning message to KCCA FC’s next opponents – Villa who we face next week at Lugogo.
“I have scored a couple of goals against Villa and I believe I will net against when we meet owing to my rich vein of form,” said Sserunkuuma, who rejoined Lugogo from Lweza at the start of the season.
The down to earth striker says part of the magic has been playing alongside budding striker Derrick Nsibambi – who many at Lugogo regard as his heir apparent.
“We now understand each other’s movements well and I hope we can score more goals. Nsibambi has the ability to follow in my footsteps because he is a good header of the ball, possesses speed and has calculated box movements,” said Sserunkuuma, who targets scoring 20 league goals this season.
Indeed Nsibambi has learned from the master (Sserunkuuma) – as his goals against Police FC at Lugogo and the winner against Bright Stars at Mwererwe portray.
Yet again, Sserunkuuma, who can also thrive in a lone ranger’s role, says he can also be equally deadly when paired with the lethal Robert Ssentongo.
“The enviable striking department at Lugogo makes each one of us work harder every time we are given the opportunity to play,” Sserunkuuma let the cat out of the bag on what propels them to score goals.
Table leaders KCCA FC have scored 20 goals in 11 matches, six above second placed Vipers.
