Former Gor Mahia defender tipped to succeed in his new club
Former Uganda Cranes and Kaizer Chiefs left back David Obua is confident Godfrey Walusimbi will succeed after joining Chiefs.
Walusimbi left Gor Mahia to join the PSL side and made his competitive debut against SuperSport United. Obua has advised his compatriot to play for the fans in order to avoid their rage.
“He is a good player and a versatile as a player as well. He can play more than one position. It is important to play in various positions nowadays as footballers and he can do that very well for the team. I think because Kaizer Chiefs is the biggest club, my advice to him is to go there and play for the club because supporters can quickly turn against you if you don’t play well,” Obua told kickoff.com.
Confident of Walusimbi
“We all know the fans; if you don’t play well in three of four games they’ll turn against you. But I’m confident that he’ll do well and adapt easily at Chiefs.” Obua added.
Obua himself played for the Chiefs after he was spotted while at South Africa for the international duty against Bafana Bafana. He was offered a three-year contract and made his debut on August 11th 2005 against Dynamos and helped his new side to a 2-0 win. He scored his first goal in the Soweto derby and won the championship and South African Player of the Year in season 2006/07.
Meanwhile, Walusimbi was brought to Gor Mahia by Bob Williamson in 2013. He has also featured for DR Congo side CS Don Bosco and SC Villa in his native country of Uganda.
