Uganda Cranes defender Bevis Mugabi has signed a new deal with Motherwell, the club has announced.
According to a statement released by the club on Thursday, the Ugandan has extended his contract with the club for the 2021/22 season.
Mugabi, 25, joined Motherwell in September 2019 and has made 35 appearances in claret and amber.
“We’re delighted Bevis has agreed to extend his stay with us at Motherwell,” manager Graham Alexander told club media on Thursday.
“We’ve been really impressed with his contribution since January, both on and off the pitch.
“We can also see the potential for him to get better and continue to help the team achieve future success,” the manager added.
Before an injury forced him out of the team, Mugabi, had been a key figure at the heart of defence for Motherwell in the 2020/21 campaign.
The defender’s name went viral on social media and gained international attention when his jump to head in the winning goal against Ross County in January was recorded at 262cm, with a leap of 75cm, breaking a record set by Cristiano Ronaldo for Juventus.
