Vipers SC forward Dickens Okwir is keen to prove his worth at Vipers if given playing time by coach Fred Kajoba.
The player joined Vipers from Amuka Bright Stars FC in June 2018 after an impressive season in the Big League where he won the Golden Boot.
However, he failed to establish himself at the club and has suffered back to back loan spells Paidha Black Angles.
In an exclusive interview with The SportsNation, Okwir says that he still believes that he can still fight for his spot at the Champions.
“I can fight for my place when I am given the time to prove myself, I have no problem with that,” says Okwir.
“I am waiting for the coach to give me the chance but if he fails then I will look somewhere else.
Okwir anticipates to have a word with Coach Kajoba Fred about his future at the club.
“I have never gotten time to talk with the gaffer yet but I believe I will soon, he’s a good coach and I like his ways,” he adds.
“I haven’t received any information from the team about being loaned I just read it on the media but my reaction was negative because I should have been informed before all this was taken to the media.”
The Venoms have plenty of options in the forward line that include Fahad Bayo, Dan Mzee Sserunkuma, Umar Kyebatala among others.
The club is said to be in talks with Tito Okello to renew his contract while Abram Ndugwa can be provide attacking options as well.
Okwir made his Vipers debut in the Super Cup against KCCA at Wankulukuku Stadium.
He later joined Paidha Black Angels on a season loan.
Born in Amolatar, Lira Okwir studied at Midland High School Kaberamaido and Soroti SS.
He played for clubs like Ngora Fredcarr FC, Sporting United Lira, Onduparaka FC, Amuka Bright Stars, Paidha Black Angels SC before moving to Kitende.
