Onyango describes Champions League win as ‘dream come true’
Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango has described becoming the first Ugandan to win the Champions League as a ‘dream come true’.
The South African side were eliminated from the African Champions League in April before returning back following the disqualification of Congolese side AS Vita Club, to win the trophy after defeating Zamalek in the final 3-1 on aggregate.
“It really was like a dream come true. And what made it even more special is that it came not too long after we qualified for the finals of the Africa Cup of Nations. That was big for our country,” the Ugandan told FIFA.com.
“I think why we achieved that is that, unlike previous campaigns – where we were a group of individuals – this time around it was all about team-work.
“We have a brotherhood among the players. The senior players met and said we had to work together. We welcomed newcomers as if they were part of a family and that made a huge difference,” he added.
