The Ugandan number one has played only three games in total
for the Tshwane side this season, and says he is in good shape and happy to
fight for a regular starting berth at the club, where he has to compete with
Kennedy Mweene, Thela Ngobeni and Wayne Sandilands.
"For a goalkeeper all you do is continue working hard
and simply wait for your turn when you get the chance to play," Onyango
told the African Football website.
"The goalkeepers’ coach John Ibarola has also been
great to me," he continued.
"When I was at Mpumalanga [Black Aces] I played all the
time, but I was not very fit and had no direction."
The Ugandan international added that he believes Sundowns
can still catch Kaizer Chiefs in the league, the gap between the two sides
currently at 13 points, with the Pretoria outfit having two games in hand.
"We know they are a good side but they can't win all
the games. Hopefully they fall apart," he said.
