Footballers Need To Start Honoring Themselves – Denis Onyango

Former Cranes goalkeeper Denis Onyango has revealed that there is need for footballers to start honoring themselves just like musicians do.

According to Onyango, having testimonials is a good gesture for retiring footballers. This also inspires young footballers.

“Having testimonial games for our players retiring from the sport is a very good gesture. If musicians honor each other, football players need to do the same. It also inspires young footballers,” said Onyango.

Talking about Mawejje’s testimonial games, Onyango said that it has been quite a roller-coaster. They didn’t know that football would bring them this far. And gracing Mawejje’s testimonials is not for the money but rather for the brotherhood.

This follows two upcoming testimonial games organized in honor of former Cranes midfielder, Tony Mawejje.

Mawejje retired from active professional football in the 2021-22 season while playing for Police FC. Two games will be played with one at Philip Omondi stadium in Lugogo while the other will be in his home area of Masaka at Masaka Recreational Grounds.

A number of players who played with Tony Mawejje are expected to grace this game. Mawejje also said that transitioning from an active football player has been one of his hardest moments in life. He’s however branching into coaching and won’t be quitting football soon.

“The number goalkeeper @masindeonyango is here for the testimonial games. We also expect to have players like Dennis Iguma, Godfrey “Jajja Walu” Walusimbi, Hassna Wasswa, Mike Sserumaga, and Geofrey Massa.

Transitioning from being a football player to not playing football is one of the hardest things I have ever faced,” said Mawejje.

The ex Cranes international also named his career highlight. This was the day he put on the national careers for the first time. It’s something that will never fade out of his mind.
