In a letter written to the federation, Uganda Cranes captain Denis Onyango has prematurely retired from the national team. This comes less than 24 hours after the Sundowns goalkeeper criticized the way the federation was running football matters in the country.

Onyango who posted the letter on his official Facebook page expressed how teary eyed he was after a lengthy consideration of the act to retire from international football.

The letter addressed to the Federation of Uganda Football Association read;

 “This letter represents my official notice of retirement from the Uganda National Football  team, The Cranes , effective April 12,2021.

It has been a great pleasure and honour to represent my country and I will always appreciate the experience and knowledge  that I have gained while playing for the Cranes.

I believe that my notice -period is sufficient enough for the technical team to adequately prepare my replacement for the upcoming matches . By remaining a true patriot and supporter of football in my beloved Uganda, I wish you all the best in your future endeavors and challenges”.

It is yet to be determined if Onyango’s goalkeeping deputy Salim Jamal will follow suit after the El Marik goalkeeper went on to his twitter account to attack the federation head. will keep you updated with the latest.
