Uganda Cranes and SuperSport United midfielder Moses Waiswa claims that it was a good decision for him to leave Sweden.
The midfield dynamo spent three years at Syriaska in Sweden before he came back home in 2017 to sign for Vipers SC.
After superb performances at the Kitende based club, the midfielder attracted attention from several clubs and eventually, he joined SuperSport United.
“I know it’s a dream of any footballer to go to Europe, and many people thought it was a wrong decision for me to come back to Uganda from Sweden,” Moses Waiswa said while appearing on Gugudde TV.
“We left for Sweden with big dreams and we were big talents then at KJT and Uganda as well.”
“So, I spent three years in Sweden and I reached the second-tier league at Syriaska but I didn’t get a good picture of what I expected.”
“I have very big dreams and I rank myself highly. I was going to spend many years in Sweden with little progress.”
“So I decided to come back to Uganda to restart and it really helped me and that’s why I am here today,” he added.
Moses Waiswa’s worst moment
Moses Waiswa didn’t make the final Uganda Cranes squad of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
This happened after he suffered a knee injury while in the training camp in Abu Dhabi.
“It seemed a joke to teammates when I fell down because there was no contact.”
“The coach told me to stand up and continue playing, but I couldn’t because the knee had twisted.”
“But that night, I tried to put ice thinking that I would play the next day, but when I got the scan confirmed that the knee had got a problem.
“This was really the darkest day in my playing career ever,” he explained.
Moses Waiswa’s best moment
Just like most of the players, Moses Waiswa says his best moment was that moment when he scored the first goal for the Cranes three years ago.
“So far in my career, nothing beats that special moment when I came on as a substitute to score on my Cranes’ debut.”
“I had just spent a few minutes on the pitch and got the equaliser and this is a moment I cannot easily forget,” he explained.
Waiswa has so far played 11 games for Uganda Cranes and has scored just once for the East African nation.
