Kakooza has been ENPPI’s fourth signing in the January transfer window after bringing Montakheb El-Suez’ Bassem Adel, El-Dakhleya’s Reda El-Said, and Amr Marei to Petrosport.
Under the guidance of Tala’at Youssef, ENPPI seek to improve their sixteenth place in the Egyptian Premier League, as they fight against their first relegation since getting promoted in 2002.
