The resurgent Geofrey Wasswa is calling for Vipers to build on the positives picked from Saturday’s loss to CS Constantine and bounce back from the eventual defeat when hosting Rusekere Growers FC in the Stanbic Uganda Cup on Wednesday (Boxing Day).
Wasswa, who was the team captain after Taddeo Lwanga pulled out with a foot injury, arguably topped that performance over the weekend after an impressive display in midfield, despite the team’s disappointing result.
The youngster was impressive when moving forward and could not be faulted for any of Constantine’s goals.
Wasswa spoke to Vipers Media after the match echoed Javier Martinez Espinoza’s post match comments by insisting the Venoms were unlucky to lose.
“You look at the first half and l think we were kinda outstanding,” he said. “We had two or three chances to score but wasted them.”
“It’s unfortunate that we lost in such unbelievable manner. Two silly mistakes from corner kicks and we were punished. It is just really disappointing, everyone is really sad.”
When asked about his own personal display, Wasswa modestly admitted it was about the team’s performance.
“I don’t really care about my performance, l care more about the result and the team,” he explained. “It was a sad evening for us, we have got to pick ourselves back up, keep working hard and fight to win the Uganda Premier League again.”
Wasswa went on to apologise to the fans and insisted that the Venoms will be better on Wednesday and look to bounce back as we host Rusekere Growers FC in the Uganda Cup at St Mary’s Stadium.
“A big thank you goes to the fans for the way they supported us, even when we were down 2-0. It was amazing,” he continued.
“We are sorry and we will be better this week, we will improve, we will keep working hard.”
“The result wasn’t good. I am sorry to the fans but we will look at that over the week and bounce back,” he concluded.
