Vipers SC have been boosted by the return of Milton Karisa to the Kitende side after receiving his International Transfer Certificate (ITC) on Wednesday.
The speedy winger returns after a spell with Moroccan outfit Mouloudia Club of Oujda that he joined on a one year deal. Karisa left Kitende to join the North African club in September 2018 after 20 months in a Venoms Jersey in which he scored 15 goals in 48 appearances.
Karisa was a key figure in the 2017/18 league winning squad under Portuguese tactician Miguel da Costa. At Mouloudia, the Ugandan was limited to only 22 appearances due to stiff competition. However, he managed to register 4 goals to his name at the club.
He made his Vipers SC debut on February 7th, 2017 in a hotly contested 2-0 win against Lweza at the Mandela national stadium, Namboole although he had to wait until September the same year to score his first league goal which came against former employers BUL FC. The 24 year old also scored the historical first goal at the St Mary’s stadium as the Venoms beat South African side Platinum Stars 1-0 in the Caf Confederation Cup.
Karisa made registered is first cap on March 25th, 2017 when he came off the bench to set up Moses Waiswa for the Uganda Cranes equaliser in the 1-1 draw against Kenya Harambee Stars during an international friendly match at Machakos before scoring his first for the national team when he salvaged a point for Uganda away in Congo Brazzaville during the Fifa 2018 World cup qualifier.
His clearance gives Vipers Coach Fred Kajoba more options upfront. He is expected to make his first season appearance as Vipers host title challengers KCCA FC in a mouth watering premier league title due February 18th, 2020 at the St Mary’s stadium Kitende.
