“I am glad to meet our national team captain, he is an inspiration to the youth, his discipline and professionalism is amazing.
“I am very proud of his achievement and that’s why i put on shirt 18 during Uganda Cranes games. We thank him for leading our team to the last 16 in the AFCON tournament, it’s a pity that we narrowly lost to Senegal.”
Mayiga also urged Mr. Safe hands to teach his teammates about investing and planning for their future
“I therefore urge him to teach his fellow players to plan for life after active football. It’s always important to save and invest money in appropriate ways, so our players should do the needful for their future.” Added Mayiga.
In return, Onyango thanked the Katikkiro for the special visit and thanked everyone for the support rendered towards the national team.
“I am delighted to meet my number one fan in the country, the Katikkiro of Buganda. It’s a great honour for me to be here. We all know football unites our nation and i thank everyone for the amazing support towards the Cranes.”
Onyango was a key pillar during the Uganda Cranes AFCON campaign in Egypt this year. He also played an important role as his club Mamelodi Sundowns retained the ABSA Premiership title last season.
