Omony: He Is The Most Likely Replacement For Onyango

Former goalkeeper Posnet Omony has spoken about the keeper he believes could replace Denis Onyango. 

With Ugandan goalkeeper Ismail Watenga still linked to Sundowns after he initially spent time training with the club in Chlookorp before he was signed by Chippa United in December, the Brazilians are believed to be monitoring the player’s progress.

Watenga, 25, has kept clean sheets in two consecutive matches against high-flying Golden Arrows, as well as Kaizer Chiefs as the Chili Boys collected four points from a possible six to boost their chances of avoiding relegation.  

The towering keeper also helped the Gqeberha-based outfit to reach the final of the Nedbank Cup with his solid performance against Pretoria Callies and Downs are believed to have earmarked him as his countryman’s possible successor. 

“Already in Uganda he is the most likely replacement for Onyango. So, if he can replace Onyango in the national team with his experience also having played in the continent with the club he was with before, why can’t he do it at Sundowns? Sundowns will have a good goalkeeper to replace Denis in him,” said Omony.

“After Denis, Ismail is one of the top young goalkeepers to come out of the country. Ismail is one of those tall goalkeepers that you can say are allrounders. He’s good in the air and he is very fast on the ground. In terms of the distribution, he is getting there. But when it comes to his primary role as a goalkeeper, he is an allrounder and he’s not just a shot-stopper like most goalkeepers in the country,” the Ugandan goalkeeper trainer told the Siya crew.
