Ushuru FC will not enjoy the services of one of the team’s best performers in the 2015 season when 2016 comes. Ugandan midfielder Allan Kateregga has stated that he will not be turning out for the team in the coming season.
Kateregga, in a lengthy post on his Facebook page, said he had talks with the club over his departure and has been released to seek better prospects.
He says his reason for asking to leave lay in the fact that the club failed to fulfill a number of set conditions but he wished the team well all the same.
“I have my goals for next season set so big, bigger than myself and so I have had to make decisions bigger than life itself. I have asked the club to let me go and they have agreed that I leave.
“I had wished to commit my future with Ushuru FC on request that some few things would change and be fixed as promised but the management was not in a position to do so, in which case I will have to look for a life elsewhere. But with great gratitude, love and affection, I thank God, the management, technical bench and players of Ushuru FC for giving me the opportunity to ply my trade with them and duly wish them the best in the future,” he said.
Kateregga’s focus is also trained on turning out for the Uganda national team, the inspiration coming from the Uganda Cranes’ title winning run at the CECAFA Senior Challenge that ended in Ethiopia recently.
“I was watching the (Uganda) Cranes lift the Cecafa (Senior Challenge) trophy the other day and I felt proud, inspired and jealous. I just feel like I should have been part of that. But I can’t do that if I am constantly being made to start matches from the bench, can I?” he posed.
