John Orenia Revita has inked a two-year deal with two times CECAFA Clubs Cup Champions KCCA FC.
The former Express FC Captain’s sign on fee is undisclosed but his contract runs from August 2019 to August 2021.
The ponytail Uganda Cranes defender arguably one of the best passers of the ball in the local league has previously played for Bukavu Dawa FC in Democratic Republic of Congo before joining Express FC in 2018/19 season where he was handed the captain’s armband in the second round.
Revita a learned Civil Engineer at diploma level has also captained the Uganda Sand Cranes in the past and named Beach Soccer league MVP in 2014.
The defender has got crisp passing and splendid game reading. His composure, technical brilliance and comfort under high pressure is top class. He will battle for a place at the heart of defense with club academy graduates Peter Magambo, Filbert Obenchan, Musa Ramathan and Kato Samuel.
His experience with the National team will greatly supplement the club’s talented center back pairing of Magambo and Kato that is short of experience.
Speaking to www.kccafc.co.ug, Revita had this to say during his first interview with the club;
I am super excited to join a team filled with immense talent. I have dreamt being a winner before and here is an opportunity for me to pick silverware at KCCA FC. I want to win trophies, to get myself in the history of this club.
On the Gaffer he said;
I spoke to the Gaffer and we shared a lot. His philosophy is one I bought into, first time. The club plays in a similar style of football that I am comfortable playing. I am really excited to be here and hopefully the boys and I can make the fans happier than before this season.
Revita will don jersey number 5 previously donned by former club skipper Timothy Dennis Awany.
