When Super Sport United was defeating Highland Park FC 1-0 to lift the 2019 MTN 8 tournament final at the Orlando Stadium, Johannesburg, on Saturday, over 12,000 spectators graced the occasion.
The atmosphere inside the stadium was electrifying, the action on the pitch throughout the 90 minutes relentless. Former Vipers midfielder Moses Waiswa was in the stands, and what he saw left him with the itchy feeling schoolboy feeling of wanting to get in on the action already.
But all he could do was sit back watch and enjoy, as Bradley Grobler’s goal in the 45th minute was the decisive moment of the game, for his new side Super Sport.
Waiswa is still recuperating from a knee injury he sustained at the back end of last season, which ruled him out of the 2019 African Cup of Nations.
The silky midfielder who signed a three-year contract with the South African side as he joined from Vipers revealed that he cannot to get underway at the club and play under such an atmosphere, when he finally recovers from the injury.
“It really feels great joining a serious side that is always hungry for silverware,” Waiswa exclusively told football-256
“The atmosphere was crazy but fun, it really felt so good as I was part of the celebrations with my teammates,”
“I cannot wait for my return onto the pitch, to pay back my bosses for all the trust and love they have showered me since my move here.” He added.
Since undergoing a successful knee operation that was fully catered for by Super Sport, Waiswa’s road to recovery is much promising as he can now lightly run as well as conducting simple swimming sessions.
