Moses Waiswa sends farewell message after completing his dream move to South Africa giants SuperSport United.
Vipers Sports Club midfield maestro Moses Waiswa has sent a heartfelt message to his beloved club.
In a statement that Waiswa posted on his social media platform, he thanked his former coaches, players and fans as well as the club owner, Dr. Lawrence Mulindwa.
The statement read,
” I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone connected to Vipers Sports Club; from the owner, to the coaches, backroom staff and of course to the supporters who have been amazing to me throughout my time at the club. Having joined the club as a midfielder, the club has helped me to develop and progress immensely both as a footballer and as a person. I will always be grateful to everyone at the club for what they have allowed me to achieve. In a footballer’s career, it’s not often that you get the chance to work with a club that is willing to passionately dedicate so much time and effort to improving and developing player’s, so I feel very lucky to have enjoyed one and a half years at this great club. The memories that I will take from Vipers will stay with me forever.”
“After the journey that we have been on and the success that we have had, it was a very tough decision to leave Vipers SC and I had to think long and hard about what was right for my long term career. Vipers has been great to me over my time here and I would like to think that I have been good to you and I leave with the club in a better place. Make no mistake, Vipers is a club that is on the rise and has a very bright future. Winning the 2017/18 league title and FUFA player of the year award at the club was the biggest honour that I have had in my career so far, and I will be eternally thankful to the club for everything that it has done for me. Vipers will always have a special place in my heart. Thank you again and I Bwish the club all the very best for the future. You Venoms.”
The 22year old reigning Airtel FUFA footballer of the year has completed his dream move to SuperSport United, a South African top-flight club.
Since making a decision to return home after a spell in Sweden, Waiswa became the fulcrum of Vipers midfield department.
Often the hidden play-maker of sorts with great command in central midfield, Waiswa’s short and diagonal passes forward, the pin-point dead balls and seldom the dribbles gave the club a new dimension of attacking philosophy.
No doubt, he was selected by the then national team head coach Sebastien Desabre and became an important member of the Uganda Cranes in the qualifiers for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
Sadly, injury cut short his dream of playing in Egypt since the recovery period would have elapsed as the tournament progressed.
Waiswa will now become a SuperSport United player after signing a two year contract with the club.
