Juwara leading Vejle to Superliga safety


Musa Juwara is among the Gambian foreign-based players who are currently in the form of their lives. Gibril Sillah, Alfusainey Gassama, and Musa Juwara are all making headlines for the positive reasons in their clubs.

Odense lost against Lynby, and Vejle 2-1 victory against Viborg therefore means Vejle only needs four points in their remaining three matches to maintain their Superliga status.

Prior to the Vejle visit to Engeri Park, German Onugkha and Musa Juwara combined 8 goals, 13 assists in the 3F Super League .

On Sunday Musa gave the visitor’s the lead in the eight minutes before Onugkha doubled the visitors lead in the 66th minute. The latter has scored in five consecutive matches, while the former Bologna wing player scored back-to-back.

The Gambia U23 captain picked up his form in the Turkey camp back in January during the winter break.

The first round saw Juwara making 21 appearances in the Superliga, starting seven of those matches while coming from the bench in the rest. Juwara has started Vejle’s last seven matches, contributing five goals (3 goals and 2 assists), with all his goals coming in the first 15 minutes. Vejle went on to only lose two of the seven matches played.

“I am ready, and I will help you win points.” Juwara who previously played for Chievo Verona  told the coach.”

“I kept working hard, and I worked a lot during training. There, I set my plans to have an impact in the last matches of the league. My partnership with Onugkha is very good; we sit close to each other in the dressing room. I always tell him I will assist you; just keep running, and the ball will find you. It’s good chemistry. The fans are behind us; we just keep working hard. We have confidence that we are going to stay in the league.”

“I feel so happy to be back to my form, scoring goals, and helping my team win. And surely, we will stay in the league. I also want to make the next step in my career as well,” he added.

Both Basel and Spanish side Levante are keeping an eye on the Gambian international.
