Onyango Confirms Receiving Offers From Arab Countries

Uganda Cranes Captain Denis Onyango is on radar of clubs in Arab Countries, the shot stopper has revealed.

Onyango, the 2016 African-based player of the year has had a tremendous career at both National and Club level, and the interest from top clubs has been inevitable.

However, he has revealed that he is still “happy” to play for Mamelodi Sundowns where he has won four PSL titles and CAF Champions League.

“There have been offers from the Arab countries… in the UAEs and Saudi Arabias, a lot of them,” Onyango told Daily Sun.

”But they haven’t been concrete offers. And you can’t rely on things which are not concrete. Of course, they have to talk to the club first. If the club says, ’Look, Denis, we still want you, but you can move on. I wouldn’t say no. After all, it’s business.

”However, as a player, I’m still happy to play for Sundowns and still win many more trophies. I want to add another star to the badge.

”As I’ve said before, Sundowns have been there for me when I was not playing. For two years they were paying me even when I wasn’t playing. If I can play and they still want me around, why not stay?

”It’s not easy to move on from a team like Sundowns and start all over again.”

The goalkeeper has guided Uganda Cranes to 2017 and 2019 Africa Cup of Nations finals.

After leaving SC Villa in 2014, he has since featured for St George, Supersport United, Black Aces, Bidvest Wits and Mamelodi Sundowns.
