Just days after securing a crucial victory on the road against stubborn BUL FC, Vipers sports club has received another huge boost in form of an International TransferCertificate (ITC) for returnee Milton Karisa.
This development officially confirms the pacy winger’s emotional return to the Venoms fold after a spell with Moroccan outfit Mouloudia Club Oranais on a one year deal.
Karisa left Kitende to join the North African club in September 2018 after 20 months in a Venoms Jersey having scored 15 goals in 48 appearances and was a key figure in the 2017/18 league winning squad under Portuguese tactician Miguel da Costa.
At Mouloudia, the Ugandan was limited to only 22 appearances due to stiff competition amongst foreigners at the club however he managed to register 4 goals to his name at the club.
He made his Vipers debut on February 7th, 2017 in a hotly contested Wakiso derby versus Lweza in a 2-0 win at Mandela national stadium Namboole but had to wait until September the same year to score his first league goal against former employers BUL FC thus kickstarting a successful stint at Kitende.
Many more happy moments followed the 24 year old winger at Vipers as he scored the historical first goal which was his maiden at the club as well at the newly opened St Mary’s stadium in a 1-0 win over visiting South African side Platinum Stars in the Caf Confederation Cup.
Further to that, on March 25th, 2017, the winger made his national team debut when he came off the bench to set up Moses Waiswa for the Cranes equaliser against Harambee Stars in a 1-1 international friendly match at Machakos before scoring his first when he salvaged a point for Uganda away in Congo Brazzaville in a Fifa 2018 World cup qualifier.
His clearance is a welcome boost as it provides Coach Fred Kajoba with more options upfront and if he performs to known standards, he will definitely strengthen the team.
As Vipers prepares to tussle it out with closest title challengers KCCA FC in a mouth watering title decider on Tuesday, February 18th, 2020 at St Mary’s stadium Kitende, Karisa’s clearance is timely and he comes along with valuable experience.
