By Website writer; Uganda Cranes’s midfielder, Khalid Aucho has broken the silence on his suspension by the Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) last week.
Aucho was dismissed from the Cranes camp and handed a return ticket to his Egypt-based club Misr El Makkasa by FUFA that had flown him to Uganda with intentions of using him in the final AFCON qualifying game in Malawi.
This was after he bleached the National team Code of Conduct and Fufa Circular by refusing to board the official means of transport aligned from the airport.
“Khalid Aucho has been dismissed from Uganda Cranes Camp for failure to adhere to the National team Code of Conduct and Fufa Circular dated 4th March 2021,” reads in part a FUFA statement Friday night.
“Aucho refused to board the official means of transport organised to pick him from Entebbe International Airport to the team camp at Cranes Paradise Hotel-Kisasi and has not even reported to camp since his arrival in the country.”
The player’s club Misr El Makkasa and Egypt Football Association have duly been informed about the decision and a return air ticket has been issued to him for his travel back to Egypt.” FUFA adds.
The midfield general’s suspension had sparked public concerns as some cited the saga to have hailed from Aucho’s political preference of the National Unity Platform (NUP) which is contrary to FUFA President, Moses Magogo’s recent Member of Parliament candidature on the National Resistance Movement (NRM) ticket.
However, Aucho has opened-up on his suspension as he concedes his misconduct and mistakes.
In the same letter, Aucho apologizes to FUFA, fellow players, fans, family and friends and promises to put his regrettable actions behind him and keep the dream of representing his country.
