Who are the worst transfers?Here is a list of Ugandan players who have failed to be successful abroad.
Derrick NsibambiThe Ugandan had a good time with KCCA for the four seasons he played with them. He was a key figure for the Kampala heavyweights and Smouha went for his services in 2018. However, he managed just three goals in 24 matches, and a year later he was released.

Patrick KadduThe towering attacker had been an influential figure at KCCA and in two years, he scored 32 goals in 64 matches. RS Berkane went for his services but he was loaned to Ismalily after failing to impress. He was eventually offloaded to Youssoufia Berrechid where his struggles continue and his next move might be back home.
At just 23, he has many years left in his career but will have to reflect on recent happenings. After an impressive career with Onduparaka, Vipers SC and KCCA FC, he left for Moroccan heavyweights Raja Casablanca. But after just five appearances, he returned to Uganda with the Venoms.
At home, Omondi flourished and was an idol to many including Ghana legend Abedi Pele. He was lethal in front of the goal for all the Ugandan Premier League clubs he played for. In 1979, he was signed by United Arab Emirates side Sharjah FC. However, he was injured just two years into his contract and had to finish his career at KCCA.

Juma BalinyaIn 2019, the striker finished as the top scorer in the Ugandan Premier League with 19 goals. Tanzanian heavyweights Yanga SC jumped for his services, but Balinya was released after some time. Gor Mahia signed him in January 2020 but less than six months later he was back in Uganda, this time around with KCCA FC.
