Red and Gold: Kalenga Muganda Chose Home


Coveted running back Kalenga Muganda has finally decided to come home and wear the colors of the Université Laval Rouge et Or.

The young man is well known in the region of Quebec, he who was outrageously dominant at the secondary level with the Blizzard of the Séminaire Saint-François. He is also the most individually successful player in Quebec school football.

“I have always dreamed of playing in front of Rouge et Or supporters,” says Muganda on the phone.

“I'm a little local guy and I've made a name for myself here. I have also always had the support of the Quebec community. It was a really big draw to play in my hometown and stay with my family.”

The addition of a talented athlete like Muganda obviously delighted Rouge et Or fans, who congratulated the newcomer in large numbers.

“Since the announcement, Laval fans have been writing to me on Facebook and Instagram. It's great,” says the one who played in California last season.

Muganda is also aware that all this comes with a certain pressure of performance.

“I have always said that I like having pressure. I play well when there is. To be able to perform, I'm going to have to stay healthy and put in the effort.”

“For show”

Muganda has also already demonstrated that he was of the “showman” type. On Monday, a well-known University of Montreal Carabins fan questioned his abilities to dominate at the college level on Twitter.

The product of the Old Montreal Spartans was not shy about answer him directly on the social network.

“I'm here for the show, says Muganda. I'm not a guy who talks a lot, but I still have things to say when people allow comments. However, I prefer to make my actions speak on the field.

The addition of the 5'11″ and 215 lb footballer also adds a family dimension to the rivalry between Quebec and Montreal. His little brother Iraghi recently chose to play for the Carabins.

“It will be a great experience for both of us. It will be big fights and may the best win!”
