There is no doubt that Denis Masinde Onyango is one of the greatest Ugandan footballers of all time.
Onyango has proved his worth even on the African continent having been voted the best African player based in Africa in 2016.
However, his road to success hasn’t been a walk in the park. The former Cranes skipper like any footballer from a third world country started his journey in the worst conditions.
Onyango began his career with SC Villa which he went on to represent from 2004-2005.
Knowing the problems young sportsmen out there might face in the pursuit of their dreams Onyango took to his social media pages to encourage them.
He posted a younger pic of him while still trying to make it alongside another one of him holding the South African PSL title he recently won with Mamelodi Sundowns.
He said that the things you want might not come quick but only hard work and concentration would deliver them.
“The things you want don’t always come quickly, so, make sure to stay the course and work as hard as you can to make sure they happen. Remember to keep it going, keep it shaking, keep it moving FORWARD & trust the process.” Onyango posted
The former Cranes skipper has had a well decorated career.
He recently won the sought African PSL best goalkeeper of the year for the second time.
He’s also tied for the most PSL winners medals in the South African league at eight.
