Out of form Vipers midfielder Moses Waiswa has received full backing from club coach Nam Michael Ouma.
Waiswa, the reigning Airtel FUFA player of the year has failed to live as advertised in recent games for Vipers Sports Club.
The player was recently whistled by his own club fans in a game against URA FC when he was named the Pilsner Man of the Match at Namboole.
He has proved less effective and his impact is no longer felt in the squad. Waiswa was recently dropped and didn’t travel with Vipers in a game against Nyamityobora.
He played 90 minutes against SC Villa and his efforts on the day produced no fruits as the side’s 34 game unbeaten run in the league came to a bitter end.
Moses Waiswa is good, he is a national team player and he wouldn’t have been summoned to okay for Cranes if he wasn’t good enough,” Said Ouma after Villa loss, when asked about the player’s importance.
He is skillful and we all know that but don’t expect him to be at the peak all the time.
We are trying to develop him more, and that is our role as Vipers Sports Club.”
Against Villa, he barely made an effort to free Mzee Dan Sserunkuma or Tito Okello as the two forwards were left frustrated, the case since he was crowned the Airtel player of the year.
Goals from Charles Lwanga, Pius Wangi and Joseph Ssemujju gave Villa a deserved 3-1 win against bitter rivals Vipers at Kitende.
It was a bad day in office, we were disorgained, and the good team won the game. I congratulate Villa for that.
The attitude was low and we were caught unaware especially in the first twenty minutes of the game. We didn’t have the right attitude today.”
Tito Okello scored the only goal for Vipers who slipped four points from leaders KCCA FC on the log. Vipers second place is under threat, as they are two points above resurgent Mbarara City.
Next for Vipers in February is Tooro United (Buhinga), Bright Stars (Kitende) and Onduparaka (Green Light – Arua).
