Bobosi Byaruhanga the Vipers SC midfielder has admitted that there is still room for improvement despite enjoying an unbelievable season with his club that has even seen him earn a senior national team call up.
The Vipers SC youngster has played 12 of Vipers’ 26 league games played this campaign, helping the club keep within touching distance of the title as well as reaching the semi-final of the Uganda Cup before the season was halted after the recent spike in COVID-19 cases that resulted in a nationwide lockdown.
“The last season was a bit hectic because I was juggling both soccer and studies, but at the moment I am concentrating on football alone which has allowed me to stage outstanding performances for my club,” the youngster said.
Byaruhanga was part of the Uganda U-20 Hippos squad that reached the final of the U-20 AFCON championship in Mauritius before he was included for the Uganda Cranes squad that played against Malawi and Burkina Faso in the AFCON qualifiers in March.
He was also selected for the Uganda Cranes team that played in a friendly against South Africa, coming off the bench to replace Taddeo Lwanga in the 80th minute.
“I feel so happy for making my debut on the national team though it leaves me with a debt to work even harder so that I gain more call ups as well as commanding more playing time,” he said.
“I have learnt a lot of things in the past days starting from the U-20 AFCON tournament to the senior team. I have interacted with different players and their stories have been fruitful to my career.”
“I have listened to senior players like Denis Onyango who has advised me to keep disciplined, be humble as well respect everyone out there.”
“My dream is to win more championships with my club and even perform better at the national team as I pray for a move to professional football,” he continued.
Byaruhanga made his debut for the Vipers senior team in a 4-0 emphatic win against Kansai Plascon in the Stanbic Uganda Cup 2018/2019 season.
He has since gone ahead to play 25 games in the Uganda Premier League scoring three goals.
