Proline’s Edrisa Lubega (L) and skipper Gift Ali.

Edrisa ‘Torres’ Lubega will for the next 6 months play at Floridsdorfer Athletiksport-Club, a second tier league side in Austria.

The development was confirmed by the Proline director cum head coach, Mujib Kasule.

“Lubega has been loaned to Floridsdorfer Athletiksport-Club in Austria for a period of 6 months. In case he impresses the technical team, his stay will be extended. As a club, we wish him the best,” Kasule noted.

Lubega has had a fast rise up the ladder since featuring in the Buganda Masaza Cup tournament in 2015 for Singo team.

He was signed the following season by Proline and played in the Big League (second tier) helping the club get promoted to the Uganda Premier League in the 2015/16 season.

He has been part of Proline’s squad in the top flight league and is still parcel of the Uganda Cranes set up structure having played at CHAN 2016 in Rwanda.

He also played a couple of matches for the Uganda U-23 side in the Olympic qualifiers.

Since former Uganda Cranes captain Ibrahim Sekajja left Red Bulls Salzburg in 2007, no other Ugandan has played in Austria since.

Lubega is one player tipped to shine for his awesome discipline and work ethic on and off the playing field.

He is a raw product with loads of calories to burn for his direct approach of play as he faces the opposition.

The former Dynamic High School player joins the few Ugandans playing in Europe.

Some of the other Ugandan players in Europe are; Faruku Miya (Belgium), William Kizito Luwagga, Alex Kakuba, and Patrick Edema (all in Portugal), Ronald Mukiibi Ddungu (Sweden), Bevis Mugabi (U.K) and many others.
