Ugandan striker Geofrey Massa has signed a two year contract with Premier League side Yenicimi FC in Northern Cyprus.
“I am happy that I have secured a club. I have played for this club before and they know what I am capable of doing,” Massa told AfricanFootball.com.
Massa, who skippered Uganda at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) in Gabon early this year, retired from the national team two weeks ago after 12 years of dedicated service.
The striker, who is among Uganda’s leading strikers of all time, together with another Cranes player Khalid Aucho had their contracts with struggling Absa Premier League side Baroka FC terminated immediately after the Afcon in February.
He said after retiring from the national team that he will concentrate on club football.
“I still have a lot to offer on the field and will continue to work hard,” added Massa.
Before joining Baroka FC, Massa also played for other South Africa sides Bloemfontein Celtic and Pretoria University. He is, however, in court with his former employers Bloemfontein Celtic demanding that his debt of US $40 000 is paid.
Before going to play in South Africa Massa had played in the Leagues in Uganda, Egypt and Cyprus.
