After completing his dream move to Vipers Sports Club on Wednesday, Disan Galiwango sat down with the club media to give an exclusive interview about his ambitions.
The left back who is yet to know his shirt number, was at Kitende before beginning life as a Venom and explained why he can’t wait to get started at St Mary’s stadium.
You don’t need much time in the company of Galiwango to be left in a spin when contemplating what kind of footballer he is.
Already hailed as one of Uganda Premier League’s brightest stars following a phenomenal season at Express where he was the Captain, the young lad sees his transfer to Vipers as an opportunity to develop further.
This move will also see Disan reacquaint himself with former coach Fred Kajoba who first gave him a test of top flight football while at Simba when no body knew about his talent.
In this first interview, Disan spoke at length about why he chose to join Vipers ahead of other suitors and also of his excitement about working under Coach Kajoba again.
Disan, welcome to Vipers the home of talents, how does it feel to have joined us?
It’ feels good to be back home, l was here at St Mary’s Kitende for my advanced level certificate and have always loved to play for Vipers SC. Sincerely, this is a move at the right time in my career as l slowly but steadily work towards joining the professional ranks.
What is it about Vipers that you like so much, that appealed to you?
First and foremost, l have roots here and further to that, its quite an enticing environment which every player would love to play in, all the necessary facilities for development of talent, are available.
When you first found out that Vipers wanted to sign you, what was your reaction like?
When a club like Vipers shows interest in a player, its such a good feeling because its a big club and with Dr Lawrence Mulindwa who has nurtured many players at the helm, it becomes even more appealing to any footballer.
What can Vipers fans expect from you as a professional and your playing style??
Of course they should expect a more developed player from the one at Express since the stiff competition for starting slots at Vipers spurs on anyone willing to succeed. Secondly, I’m a hard worker who always strives not to be the same as l was yesterday. So, l will do my best to make them happy.
What do you hope to achieve during your time at Vipers??
Vipers is a winning team, therefore I want to continue with the same spirit in a bid to achieve more silverware with the club. Secondly, l want to help the club perform better in the Caf Champions League as l also use the same platform to achieve my professional football dreams.
How much are you looking forward to working under Fred Kajoba?
A lot of it depends on me but I highly respect coach Kajoba, he trusted me with my first top flight league licence while at Simba just at the age of 16. So, can’t wait to rekindle the Bombo memories.
Finally, for the Vipers fans reading this interview, what’s your message to them?
I‘m going to do my best to carry on helping the team progress further from where I have found it, even more so next season and I hope to make them smile.
