They say tough times never last but tough people do; a saying former Uganda Cranes left-back Godfrey Walusimbi reciprocates especially in this tough COVID-19 period.
The pandemic not only led to the abrupt end of most league seasons across the world but also rendered many soon to be free agents like Walusimbi clueless about their next move, but the former Kaizer Chiefs and Gor Mahia left-back is happy about his Albanian detour and can’t wait for another challenge.
“It’s been a bag of mixed fortunes, to be honest, but am one who takes on any challenge. The pandemic interrupted my rhythm in Albania and I couldn’t help it.”
“I believe my brief time there was worthwhile and am ready to turn to the next chapter,” Walusimbi told Football256.
The 30-year-old left-back who joined Albanian side Vllaznia FC in September 2019 on a short-term contract is now a free agent after managing 10 appearances in 15 second-round games played.
When asked about where his next destination is, the most capped Uganda Cranes player was coy.
“Honestly the coronavirus pandemic has made this worse but my agent is working tirelessly to make things happen.”
“I know we have offers but we are taking our time to make a final decision and when we do, you’ll be the first to know,” Walusimbi stressed.
Vllaznia currently sits eighth on the 10-team log on 39 points after 31 games played. The Tirana based side are comfortably off the relegation mark with a 25-points difference from relegation threatened and nineth placed Flamutari FC.
Godfrey Walusimbi who retired from the national team the Cranes just after the 2019 AFCON tournament has turned out for SC Villa and Vipers locally while Don Bosco, Gor Mahia, Kaizer chiefs and Vllaznia have been his foreign addresses.
He is also the most capped Cranes player with 102 caps.
