Police FC add steel to their defence with Muhamood Hassan signing.
A day after announcing the arrival of Tonny Mawejje, Police FC have unveiled defender Muhamood Hassan.
The defender joins on a two-year deal from Onduparaka FC as a free agent after expiry of his contract at the Arua based club.
The former league champions confirmed the arrival of the highly rated central defender in a tweet.
Mood is expected to bolster the defensive side of Abdallah Mubiru’s side ahead of the 2020/21 campaign and a partnership with his former teammate at Express FC Henry Katongole could be exciting if the latter stays at the club.
Police ended last season 13th on the table when Fufa opted to bring the season to end due to the COVID19 pandemic.

Mikel Arteta: Arsenal boss angered by Eddie Nketiah’s dismissal and Jamie Vardy let-off.
Mikel Arteta has angrily argued against Eddie Nketiah’s dismissal against Leicester – and insisted if Nketiah’s red card was warranted then Jamie Vardy, who scored a late equaliser for the 1-1 draw, also should have been sent off.
After a lengthy VAR review, which included referee Chris Kavanagh looking at the incident on a pitchside monitor, Gunners forward Nketiah was dismissed in the 75th minute just four minutes after being introduced as a substitute.
Arsenal had dominated before the interval, missing a hatful of chances either side of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s opener, but lost control of the game after Nketiah’s expulsion and were pegged back by a late Vardy leveller for the Foxes.
“I am extremely proud of the team – the way we played, against this type of opposition, and how dominant we were,” Arsenal boss Arteta told Sky Sports.
“In the first half we should have gone three- or four-nil up and killed the game.
“With the red card decision, he doesn’t see the player and you have to know that he is a young kid.
“But if that is a red card then Leicester have to play with 10 men after 42 minutes. That has to be a red card as well.”
Zlatan still in-form, CR7 keeps scoring… 6 things learnt in Milan 4-2 Juve
A six-goal thriller was witnessed at an empty San Siro as AC Milan beat table-toppers and champions-in-waiting Juventus 4-2 in a Serie A fixture on Tuesday.
After a dour 45 minutes, Zlatan Ibrahimovic thought he had put the hosts ahead with the last kick of the first half, only for the goal to rightly be chalked off for offside.
The game sprung to life after the restart as Adrien Rabiot broke the deadlock with an exquisite solo goal that saw him run across half the field, skipping past five AC Milan challenges before unleashing an unstoppable shot from 20 yards just 74 seconds into the second half.
Juventus soon had their lead doubled when Cristiano Ronaldo calmly slotted a left-footed finish past Gigi Donnarumma after Juan Cuadrado found him with a precise lofted ball into the area. It may be pointed out that he was massively aided by a defensive mixup between Alessio Romagnoli and Simon Kjaer.
From nothing, the hosts were granted a lifeline when Leonardo Bonucci was adjudged to have handled in the area after consultations with VAR and Zlatan Ibrahimovic buried the ensuing penalty.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic joked he is ‘President, player and coach’ at Milan, discussed his age and fitness levels, but dropped hints on his future. ‘Read between the lines.’
The 38-year-old converted a penalty in this evening’s 4-2 thriller against Juventus, sparking the comeback from 2-0 down.
Diego Pablo enters books of records after a one whole draw at Celta.
Diego Pablo Simeone reached his 323rd LaLiga game as Atlético de Madrid manager during Tuesday’s clash against Celta. The Argentine has overtaken John Benjamin Toshack as the third coach with the most games managed at a single club in the history of the top-flight of Spanish football.
Only Miguel Muñoz (Real Madrid, 424) and Luis Aragonés (Atlético de Madrid, 407) remain ahead of our coach, yet both have an inferior win rate than the Argentine.
With 196 wins, 76 draws and 50 losses since his debut against Málaga on Jan. 7, 2012, Simeone has won 60.68% of his games at our club, compared to Miguel Muñoz’s 60.61%, Luis Aragonés’ 47.6% and Toshack’s 39.1%.
Atleti won the 2013/14 LaLiga championship and have never finished below third spot in Simeone’s seven full seasons. At our club, the Argentine has won one Copa del Rey title, two Europa Leagues, two UEFA Super Cups and one Spanish Super Cup.
Klopp insists Liverpool won’t be pressured into spending big this summer
Jurgen Klopp has insisted Liverpool won’t be pressured into spending big this summer by their rivals’ exploits in the transfer market.
Klopp has previously said the Reds “cannot spend millions and millions” this summer, with club finances having been hit by the coronavirus pandemic.
That has sparked fears among some supporters that the club could fall behind some of their rivals, having only just ended their 30-year title wait following a season of utter dominance in the Premier League.
Chelsea have already splashed out a combined £89million on striker Timo Werner from RB Leipzig and winger Hakim Ziyech from Ajax – with boss Frank Lampard tipped to target further additions to his squad including Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz and Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell.
Manchester City need a top-class centre-back and have been linked with moves for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly and Inter Milan man Milan Skriniar.
And Manchester United have also been tipped to make big moves in the transfer market, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men favourites to land £100m-rated Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
