After signing Paul Fenech from Balzan on Tuesday, Birkirkara FC continued to strengthen their squad as they secured the services of Nigerian midfielder Uchenna Calistus Umeh and Brazilian forward Marcelo De Siqueira. Both signed a one-year contract with the Stripes.
Uchenna Umeh moved to Malta in 2015, joining Valletta from Ekranas of Lithuania. With the Citizens, he won two Premier League championships, the first under the guidance of coach Paul Zammit who is now coach of Birkirkara.
On the other hand, this will be the first experience in Europe for twenty-four year old striker Marcelo De Siqueira.
