Cranes captain Onyango saves off the pitch

Uganda Cranes and Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango has wooed many over with a string of incredible ‘Did you see that saves’.

But it is not just his fingertip saves that has got fans bowing out of respect for him.

The Uganda Cranes captain has perhaps got so used of saving that he is now using his super powers of the pitch as well.

During one of his visits to a local mall in Johannesburg South Africa, Onyango pulled off another save as he rushed to the aid of South African resident Alfred Ngwenya who was suffering severe back spasm.

The truly grateful Ngwenya went to Twitter to thank the shot-stopper, tweeting; “This afternoon I was helped by this gentleman Onyango after suffering from severe back spasm pain at the parking lot, to a point that I couldn’t even walk and drive properly.”

“May you continue shining brightest and keep on winning those Championships,” the tweet continued.

Onyango returned to South Africa off the back of a disappointing international window with the Cranes where they suffered a 1-0 defeat against South Sudan, while they also received a bit of criticism for their performance against South Sudan in the first game.

He will however look to put that at the back of his mind and help South Africa continue their chase for a fourth consecutive DSTV Premier Soccer League title.

Masandawana are still unbeaten in three games after winning two and drawing one of their opening three fixtures.

They currently lie third on the log with seven points, one point behind leaders Swallows who have played a game more. Sundowns return to action on Sunday at home to Amazulu.
