Uganda football governing body, federation of Uganda Football Association, (FUFA) has asked Johnathan Mckinstry, the Head Coach of the Uganda Cranes to step aside from managing and coaching the team for the period from 2nd- 31st March 2021 adjourned the national team’s manager, for weeks. In the statement issued yesterday evening on its socials about the Uganda cranes manager status, FUFA asked Mckinstry to step aside from managing national team. “In the meantime, Assistant Coaches Mr. Mubiru Abdallah, Mr. Mbabazi Livingstone and goalkeeping coach Mr. Kajoba Fred will take charge of the team during this period,” they added. “The rest of the Technical team remains unchanged.” FUFA’s decision comes at the backdrop of a poor performance from the team, after a slow performance against South Sudan. The Cranes struggled to get a 1-0 win against South Sudan at Home in Afcon qualifiers and lost to the Northern neighbours in neutral grounds in Kenya. On March 24th, the National Team will play host to Burkina Faso at St. Mary’s Stadium in Kitende before visiting Malawi, five days later in their final qualifying game.
