SuperSport United midfielder Moses Waiswa has explained his decision to return home after spending three years in Sweden, saying he needed to restart.

The 23-year-old spent three years at Vaxjo United before returning to his native Uganda to sign for Vipers.

Waiswa's decision appeared to be a step backwards after making the initial move to play in Europe, but he insists it was the right call at the time.

"I know it's a dream of any footballer to go to Europe, and many people thought it was a wrong decision for me to come back to Uganda from Sweden," Waiswa told Gugudde TV as quoted by Sports256.

"But I would love to make it clear, we left for Sweden with big dreams and we were big talents then at KJT and Uganda as well. So, I spent three years in Sweden and I reached the second-tier league at Syriaska but I didn’t get a good picture of what I expected.

"So, as a person, I have very big dreams and I rank myself highly. I was going to spend many years in Sweden with little progress, so I decided to come back to Uganda to restart and it really helped me and that’s why I am here today."
