In the world of football, every decision counts. For former Police FC defender Hassan Muhamood, the next one could shape the trajectory of his already illustrious career.

As multiple clubs vie for his signature, the gifted goalscoring defender is weighing his options with utmost care.

Arua Hill, Wakiso Giants, and even his former home, Express FC, are all in contention to secure his services.

Wakiso Giants, still rueing their missed opportunity to sign him from last season, are particularly keen.

Additionally, Soltilo Bright Stars see Muhamood as an ideal partner for Warren Bbuule, who enjoyed a standout season.

The defender won acclaim during his short time in the Tanzania's Premier League with Mbeya City, with Tanzania's allure also remaining strong.

Muhamood's impressive spell at Mbeya City - where he scored thrice and set up four goals - has cemented his reputation in Tanzania.

Clubs like Geita Gold, Namungo, and Coastal Union are reportedly in the race, hoping to bring Muhamood back to the landscapes of Kilimanjaro.

There's no denying Muhamood's prowess on the field. A defender with a knack for goals, he bagged six for Police in the 2020/21 season.

Notably, his spectacular hat-trick against Mbarara City in March 2021 remains etched in fans' memories.

But it hasn't always been smooth sailing. A turbulent 18 months, marked by a significant knee surgery, meant Muhamood missed the entire 2021/22 season.

Despite this setback, his resilience and subsequent performance with Mbeya City showed he's still a force to be reckoned with.

As Muhamood contemplates his next move, the stakes are high. His choice is more than just about the next club; it's about growth, and future opportunities.
