“We are happy that we managed to sign a top player (striker) like Massa. This goes to show that we are serious about our mission to reinforce the squad and challenge for a respectable position on the log.

“His experience and prowess will assist us in achieving our goal, which should top-8 finish” he says.

Career History

Massa began his career in 2004 with Police FC in the Ugandan Premier League before moving to Egypt side Al-Masry Club in 2005.

He played three years in Egypt before moving in 2008 to South African club Jomo Cosmos and for the team he played 14 games and scored one goal.

In 2008 he left the team to return to Egypt and sign a contract with Itesalat. The forward joined on 14 September 2011 to Telsim Super League club Yenicami Ağdelen SK.

In 21 August 2013, he signed a deal with the South African side University of Pretoria and has now left to Bloemfontein Celtic ahead of the 2015/16 PSL season.

Massa has been a target for several clubs including Maritzburg United and AmaZulu despite reports a fortnight ago that indicated the player’s willingness to stay at University of Pretoria.
