Moses Waiswa Hails ‘Father Figure’ Denis Onyango

Uganda Cranes midfielder Moses Waiswa has lauded Captain Denis Onyango for helping him acclimatise in South Africa.

Waiswa reportedly completed a move to Supersport United from Vipers in July last year but had to wait until January 2020 to be unveiled.

With Uganda Players struggling abroad over many factors that are not limited to language barrier, Waiswa says that his country mate Onyango who features for Mamelodi Sundowns, has been there for him.

“I am settling in quite well every day. It’s a great feeling. Onyango has helped me a lot with advice and support and is like a father figure to me,” Waiswa told CAJ News.

Waiswa made his Supersport debut as they beat Chippa United 3-0 on January 25 but the league was halted due to Covid19 pandemic with around six rounds to go.

Supersport United FC are third with 40 points, with action set to resume early next month.

Waiswa added: “I feel sharp. SuperSport United fans should expect my best performances for the team if I am given chance.”

Waiswa missed Uganda Cranes encounters in 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt when he was sidelined for seven months due to an injury.

With the ongoing Covid19 pandemic, the midfielder says that it has also aided him to work on his strength.

He stated: “Healing is not only physical but also mental. I would say now I am 90% healed.”
