🇺🇬 Geoffrey Wasswa makes injury return after seven months

Geoffrey Wasswa has turned out to be a prominent feature for Uganda Premier League team Vipers SC upon being promoted from the academy side in 2015 according to Kawowo Sports.

Wasswa was handed his maiden debut on September 10, 2016, against BUL FC where he quickly established himself as the player to look out for in Ugandan topflight football. 

The 20-year-old, was without a doubt Vipers' standout player during the 2018/19 season until he picked up a knee injury in February that would see him on the sidelines for seven months until his full recovery. 

“With over 7 months on the sidelines with an injury, I returned on 22nd November 2019 in our 2-1 victory over BUL FC as a substitute in the 63rd minute and enjoyed playing again.

"I am thankful to Vipers SC and the fans for keeping their faith in me.”

Head coach Edward Golola admitted his relief in having the youngster return to action for Vipers, citing the importance of having a skilled defender like Wasswa.

“I am happy to see Wasswa back in the team, he is a versatile player who can help us in many aspects. He is very important in our squad and his return comes at the right time.”

Vipers SC are set to take Onduparaka on Saturday, October 26 in Arua.
