Ugandan midfielder Moses Waiswa says SuperSport United can expect his “best performances” now that he is feeling more settled in South Africa.
The 23-year-old made the switch to the Premier Soccer League (PSL) in January 2020, signing from Ugandan giants Vipers SC on a deal which runs to the end of June 2022.
His debut for United was a tough match, as the club succumbed 1-0 at the hands of cross-town rivals Mamelodi Sundowns in the Nedbank Cup.
“I was out injured for seven months. I felt [the South African Premiership] is a higher level with lots of tactics and speed compared to Ugandan standards,” Waiswa told Daily Sun, before adding that Sundowns goalkeeper and Ugandan compatriot Denis Onyango has been a big help in allowing him to adapt to a new country.
“I am settling in quite well every day. It’s a great feeling. He [Onyango] helped a lot with advice and support and he is like a father figure to me.”
Waiswa admitted that his debut match is a bad memory, but insists that he is on the path to being fully recovered both physically and mentally, thus SuperSport can expect a higher output from the player if and when the season resumes.
“It wasn’t a good experience losing to Sundowns. It was also bad because the lockdown came in, but it helped me work more on myself,” he added.
“I am good now. Healing is not only physical but also mental. I would say now I’m 90 percent healed.
“I feel sharp. SuperSport United fans should expect my best performances for the team if I am given a chance.”
