The Maroons midfielder said this while in an interview with Sanyuka TV.

“Worldwide, Iniesta is the player that I truly admire,” he answered when asked his idol. “I watch his videos a lot – how he passes, creates spaces on and off the ball and his life style off the pitch,” he added.

“Locally, it’s Ibrahim Sadam Juma. A very intelligent footballer who I watched for long as he started his career from Luzira

The former U-17 international also revealed his best and worst career moment so far.

“Playing for the national team (U-17) and scoring against Rwanda at Namboole stand out for me as the best moment.

“The fans were all chanting my name and it totally touched me. The worst moment came when we were relegated.

Obuya is regarded as one of the most gifted midfielders in the Uganda Premier League although his career has been hampered by injuries especially this season.
