Simon Baligeya eager to learn from seniors at URA

Simon Baligeya claims that he is ready to learn from experienced players after joining URA FC.

The defender signed a three-year contract with URA FC that will keep him at URA FC until 2024.

“I am very happy to be here, it’s honestly not that easy,” Simon Baligeya was quoted by URA FC website.

“Over the years, people have been accustomed to the mentality that URA only fancies experienced (old) players.”

“My move here has proved otherwise.”

“I believe it is going to be exemplary and encouraging for other younger players.”

“I intend to utilize the experience of the players here to improve myself.”

“And I am ready to learn from each one of them.”

“My plan is to work hard, and pray that my chance comes so I can utilize it to showcase my capabilities,” he added.
