Vipers SC and Rahmat Ssenfuka have come to an agreement to end their relationship by mutual consent. Rahmat initially joined the now reigning Uganda Premier League champions on a four-year contract but after two years of being together, the two parties have decided to part ways just after two years into the contract.
The club confirmed the departure of the midfielder with a statement on their official Vipers Sc website that read, “Midfielder Rahmat Ssenfuka has left Vipers Sports Club by mutual consent after spending two seasons with us.”
Ssenfuka Rahmat joined Vipers SC from Police FC in June 2018 and helped them reach the quarterfinals of the Cecafa Kagame Cup on his debut in 2018. He also helped them to win the Pilsner Super 8 trophy and will also leave a Uganda Premier League champion as he has been part of the squad that lifted the gong after the season was ended prematurely due to the coronavirus.
Following his departure from the UPL champions, the young Ugandan midfielder sent an emotional message to his former employers on his social media pages.
“With due respect, it’s time to move on after two fantastic seasons with Vipers SC. Great thanks to the management, the fans, fellow teammates, Coaches, the staff & everybody who was part of my journey since June 2018. Special thanks to the President of the Club, Doctor Lawrence Mulindwa. I shall always stay part of Vipers in memories & wish the club the best. Each journey has a start & an end,” read Rahmat’s message.
Rahmat Ssenfuka is said to have agreed on personal terms with Wakiso Giants ahead of the new season scheduled to start in November. The club wished him well with his next move as he has been a loyal servant.
“Everyone at Vipers would like to thank Rahmat for his contribution to the club, and to wish him all the best for the future,” a club statement read.
