Musa Esenu (L) joins Vipers teammates Tonny Odur, Brian Kakaire and Hassan Wasswa (not with the club now) in celebrating a goal last year.

After an impressive run with Soana Football Club in the second half of last season, Musa Esenu made a big money move to Vipers Sports Club in August.

The former MUBS star, who graduated from the University Football League, started well – opening his goal account for the venoms in their 4-0 victory over Police FC at Nakivubo in the first round of this season.

The striker has however failed to cement his place at Vipers but refuses to give up hope of making his dream come true amidst the struggles.

Esenu has hardly made the match day squad since moving to the Kitende-based side but stresses all will be fine and hopes to regain his scoring form.

“I am convinced that everything is going to be fine and I will be able to give the best I have to my club,” Esenu told the club website.

“This is my hope and with this dream, I will work hard every day. There’s no pressure on me whatsoever and I am sure it’s just a matter of time for me to shine again. This is something that I focus on each day,” he added.

The pacey forward admitted this season has been far from best but cannot describe it as a failure either as he is hopeful his chance will arrive.

“I have so far played two games this year – against Bul and Lweza but that does not mean it’s all done and dusted for me. My chance will come and I will take it with both hands,” he said.

“I can’t say I have failed here. No, it is normal for a player to go through such a spell and what is vital is keeping the focus and never giving up.”

Vipers host Esenus’ former club Soana on Saturday, April 22 at St Mary’s stadium.
