In a letter released on 21st March, 2021 on his social media handles, troubled Uganda Cranes midfielder Khalid Aucho took it upon himself to apologize to FUFA, players, fans, family, and friends for his actions following his dismissal from the Cranes camp.
A statement read “Am(sic) remorseful and I take full responsibility for the mistakes that led to my suspension from the national team camp for the forthcoming AFCON qualifiers against Burkina Faso and Malawi”.
He further went on to state that “I regret my actions and am(sic) ready to put this chapter behind me as it’s a dream to represent my country”.
The nation will now await to hear about FUFA’s stance on the decision to consider Khalid for future crane engagements.
Meanwhile Ugandans will wait for a bit longer to finally have a glance of Uche Mubiru in a Cranes Jersey. Initially the Wycombe Wanderers striker was summoned to turn up for the two double headers against South Sudan but only to turn down the chance for the debut, citing strict lockdown measures in the UK.
The striker who featured for 82 minutes in Wycombe’s 0-0 draw away to Coventry City cited personal reasons as the main cause of his latest withdrawal from the Cranes camp.
