Hassan Wasswa Dazo last featured for KCCA FC on March 29, 2016 against SC Villa in the Startimes Cup at Nakivubo Stadium. KCCA FC won the game 1-0.

On September 22, 2016 Wasswa Dazo underwent an operation on his left knee after he suffered a meniscal tear.

That injury had kept the central defender out for some time abut looks like the bad old days are behind Dazo.

The 2015/2016 league winner started private training last year but on Monday afternoon, Dazo had his first open training session at the Philip Omondi Stadium.

I have been out for some time, right now I feel much better because I started jogging and the knee is responding well, before surgery it was a totally different story

Wasswa Dazo told www.kccafc.co.ug after his afternoon workout, he also added.

I have been doing strengthening exercises under the supervision of the doctor (Emmanuel Tusuubira), so am feeling much better and very soon am optimistic I will resume playing again

By the time he got injured, Wasswa Dazo had formed a formidable defensive partnership with Timothy Awany, one that had made the 11 time league champions hard to breakdown. And like any other player Wasswa Dazo is not happy about the whole situation.

I feel bad when am out, because football is like my life and I miss it, I want to play every day, but I will wait for my time to full recovery and fight to get into the team again

Wasswa Dazo has been a loyal teammate, supporting from the terraces as KCCA FC won 10 games, drew two and lost three, he is impressed with the performance so far.

Our performance is not that bad but we have to fight more to be stronger than we are right now, even when I return, we have to stay together and solid.

The other player who was operated with Wasswa Dazo is Jackson Nunda who also tore the meniscal muscle in his right knee but his anterior cruciate ligament (ACC) also needs attention.
