Odumegwu spoke to www.kccafc.co.ug and had this to say about his transfer.


I feel so happy to be at the best club in the CECAFA region. This is a very big club with a very rich history and any player would love to be part of such a club. Back home in Nigeria, this club is respected for its performance and records not forgetting the philosophy of using a young team in major competitions like CAF.

I am here for only one job and that is to play football. I want to write history for this club and I can not wait to get started.
