The youngster was signed by the 16-time league champions for a two-year contract in the last transfer window
Goffin Godfrey Oyirwoth has explained why he chose to sign for Sports Club Villa even as other Ugandan Premier League clubs are seriously looking for his signing.
The 20-year-old has signed for the record champions in a deal that will see him at the club for two seasons, and he explained why he’s convinced he’ll be part of the Villa fraternity.
“There is no talented player who doesn’t want to play for the best team. I felt happy as a player. I felt privileged to know that a club of Villa’s stature was watching over me.
The youngster also explained why he chose the number 27 jersey when signing for the Jogoos.
“Initially I wanted number seven, but I learned that Benson Muhindo wears it, so I asked for another ending with seven. That’s how I ended up with 27,” he said. he continued.
The Ugandan has also opened up about his goals as he has already been regularly involved in the current season, which has taken a hiatus to allow players to feature in the African Nations Championship.
“When I signed for Villa I first focused on the hard work to get into the starting XI that I achieved in the first five games,” he added.
“Second, I want to be involved in more goals; I want to create more goals and score as much as possible and I want to win some silverware for SC Villa.
“The start of the five games is the result of hard work in training. It’s a great feeling, but again, I won’t take it for granted, but instead will continue to work hard to keep my position.
Oyirwoth has revealed his best game came against Mbarara City on Matchday 2.
“I felt very happy that I was able to help the team win all three points that day. Being involved in two goals helped me build my confidence as a player, ”he concluded. “I was also very impressed with the teamwork that day.
“We are not performing badly, but we still have a lot to do and improve as a team, especially our away form. And for me personally, I also have a lot to offer the team so that we can improve our performance.
Oyirwoth is among the youngsters who are being watched closely to see how they perform in the 2020/21 season.
