The last time David Obua featured for the National team, he threw his shirt on the turf after being substituted. This left many fans devastated, cursing the footballer for his actions. But the player had his reasons and promised never to play for Uganda again.
This promise came to pass last year when he was named among the Ugandan ex-players who played against a Barcelona select side which confirmed he was retired.
But just when we thought this was it for the ex-Keizer Chief player and Hearts player, Super sport thought otherwise as he was the only selected person from Uganda to be among the analysts in the Super Sport studios during matches.
Obua’s first commentary game came on Saturday when Cameroon was taking on Burkina Faso and he was so impressive in the studios. His analysis was so on point; he was accurate and so confident at the same time.
We thought that the former Ugandan striker was only going to comment about Ugandan games but it seems he has been entrusted to do more than that. He will feature on the panel with other analysts like former Bayern Munich (Ghana) defender Sammy Kuffor among others.
You catch Obua tonight as the Uganda Cranes will be taking on Ghana in their opening game of the first AFCON in 39 years.
