Another Ugandan footballer joins New York Red Bulls in USA

21-year-old Frank Ssebuufu has become the second Ugandan youngster to join New York Red Bulls II, a football club in the United States.

The club Sporting Director Denis Hamlett stated: “We are pleased to welcome Frank to the club for our first MLS NEXT Pro season. He has a bright future, and we know he will be a great addition to the team.”

The club coach, also former Uganda national team coach, Ibrahim Ssekagya hailed the youngster as a good addition to his team.

“Frank has many skills that he can bring to the table and will be a great piece within the squad. His success both domestically and internationally was a main factor in our decision to bring him on board,” Ssekagya said.
