Vipers SC defender Rashid Toha has revealed intentions of long stay at the Kitende-based club as he nears return from injury.
The gigantic defender underwent surgery after succumbing to a knee injury during Vipers two-all stalemate with Mbarara City at the St Mary’s Stadium-Kitende last year.
Now that he nears full recovery, the former Onduparaka FC skipper targets starting spot at the StarTimes Uganda Premier League champions.
“My recovery is so far so good. I wish I had access to the gym so that I use more equipment,” Rashid Toha was quoted by the club’s official website www.viperssc.co.ug.
“If someone asked me, I would say that I am now 75 percent fit. But I am in no rush as time is on my side with the lockdown still on.”
“I will get even in better shape.”
“My ambitions have not died. For starters, I want to fight for my place in Vipers Starting XI.”
“And now that we will be playing on the continent, I want to be in the thick of things as we push for our dream in the Caf Champions League.”
“It is going to be a dream-come-true season for us,” Rashid Toha added.
Rashid Toha yet to play for Vipers
Rashid Toha joined Vipers at the beginning of the 2019/2020 season from Onduparaka FC but he has failed to live up to the hype.
In his maiden season at St. Mary’s stadium, he managed to play just one game against Mbarara City.
However, he had to be substituted in the second half due to injury.
“I was really scared. I thought I would be out for several months. Tests and scans were done to determine the extent of my injury.”
“However the doctor said I had to undergo minor surgery to repair my nagging knee injury and I duly accepted.”
“Thank God, the surgery was minor. Imagine it happened in February and four months down the road I am feeling much better and stronger,” added the towering defender.
Rashid Toha is known for his aerial prowess, art in striking the dead balls and good game reading.
