Uganda Cranes goalkeeper completes loan move to South African club


Ugandan shot stopper Ismail Watenga has joined Chippa United on loan from Mamelodi Sundowns in South Africa.

Watenga will now feature for Chippa United on a 19-month loan deal but with an option on returning to Sundowns when recalled.

The former Vipers goalkeeper initially signed a three year deal with Sundowns and has been part of the team since the start of the year.

The Masandawana however have sent him out on loan to necessitate playing time for him.

Sundowns already have Cranes captain Denis Masinde Onyango as their first choice and Kennedy Mweene, Reyaad Pieterse and Ricardo Goss as his immediate deputies.

Watenga is currently training with Chippa United in Port Elizabeth as the team trains for their next league game against Orlando Pirates slated for Wednesday 16th December.

Chippa United, also known as Chilli Boys, are currently 13th the DSTV premiership table with eight points accumulated from the six games played.

Moses Waiswa (Supersport United) and striker Daniel Isiagi are other Ugandan players plying their trade in South Africa.
