Vipers SC defender Geoffrey Wasswa is continuing his weekday home workouts as wait for the return of football carries on.
The 21-year-old had just got back from a long-term knee injury layoff to help his club go into the Coronavirus-enforced break top of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) by four points on 54, with five matches to go.
We caught up with him via phone and he narrated to upl.co.ug how tough it was on the sidelines.
“I thank God that I came back strongly and I am able to play my game. It was really a trying moment and I was missing that show on the pitch.”
Wasswa, who can comfortably play in midfield and defence, missed the first two months of the season and slowly worked his way back before giving his side a good push in the second round of the season.
“It was painful watching my team struggling when I was in the stands. I was working hard so that I come back and I give what I can to help my team.
“And I thank my club because for me it’s family. Everyone working at vipers; players or administrators, we are family.”
Wasswa is hoping the lockdown ends soon so they can come back and complete the job at hand.
“What I know, as Vipers, we’re ready to lift this trophy,” he said, “It’s all we are looking for and we are ready.” Vipers are looking for their fourth league title.
