Moses Oloya officially unveiled at Russian side, Kuban Krasnodar

Exciting footballer, Moses Oloya, for obvious reasons is one of those personalities born with the lucky charm.

The fast paced winger was officially unveiled at Russian club, Ruban Krasnodar in arguably his biggest individual deal ever signed.

He was signed on a three year deal from Vietnamese champions, Becamex Bình Dương.

Oloya, 23, was one of first signings recruited by the club new Romanian born coach Daniel Vasile Petrescu, who replaced Russian native Sergei Tashuyev.

Upon landing at the home of the Yellow-Greens club, he echoed the willingness and urge to become an instant winner at the oldest club in Russian football.

I am happy to be at Ruban Krasnodar.

Surely, I will not disappoint. I am ready to play and die a little for the club

Sergei Bendz, a 33 year old defender who had played at Ruban Krasnodar in his early days was the other player unveiled along with Oloya.

Oloya has graduated over the ranks from a humble footballer to now a famous and outspoken personality with recognizable caps (37 since 2011) for the national senior team – Uganda Cranes.

Ruban Krasnodar forked a hefty $400,000 fee to acquire the services of the gifted player.

Two Ukraine born players Ihor Zhurakhovskyi and Dmytro Shcherbak (both midfielders), as well as the goalkeeping duo of Dmitri Stajila and Yevgeni Frolov from Moldova are the five foreign players at the club also tagged as the Kubantsies and the Yellow-Greens.

Years after finding a foot in the dusty town but football rich town of Walukuba, Jinja, about 45 KM from the Ugandan capital, Kampala, Oloya managed to get a breakthrough to Kampala Capital City Authority F.C.

He left for the murky professional waters in Vietnam where he featured for Xuan Thanh Sai Gon and later Becamex Bình Dương.
