It is on a sad note that the Uganda Cranes goal keeper and captain Denis Onyango retires from national team football. This comes shortly after there has been misunderstandings in the top management of the football governing body of Uganda, FUFA
This was already seen through after a leaked voice note landed in our hands where Denis Onyango was overheard saying that he will also leave the national team after his fellow player and assistant Hassan Waswa retired.
All this was bred when the president of FUFA Eng. Moses Magogo came out and trashed the Uganda Cranes team players. That they went to African Cup of Nations and did ‘nothing’ that representing the country and win something.
“Abo abasambi mu CHAN basamba bi kii?, What did they play?, When you demand for money, what have you put on the table? They went there and played shitty football and they come back, Okay?, Mubanjaki, Mwakola kii?” roared and unbelievably angry Moses Magogo.
These words attracted anger from Denis Onyango and he asserted that he would resign and leave the Uganda Cranes. And he said that ‘that man’ meaning Moses Magogo has been eating the players’ money but he keeps on being greedy.
“It is you to play for your father the World Cup games, me I don’t have time for stupid people. He eats the players’ money and he is dry about it. Everyone was supposed to receive a million monthly, but they ate it. He instead went ahead and abused the boys, plus denying them their CHAN jerseys” Denis Onyango stated in a voice note.
“I am tired of working for FUFA guys, let others work for them, Even Jamal attacked Moses Magogo, I do not know whether he will play football again. Let him build a new team” Denis Onyango roared.
On the same note, after all that happened, the egg hatched and now Denis Onyango has resigned from the Uganda Cranes national team. In a letter the captain sent to FUFA president, he says that it represents his official retirement from Uganda National team effective 12th April 2021.
“It has been a great pleasure and honor to represent my country and I will always appreciate the experience and knowledge that i have gained while playing for Uganda Cranes” part of the retirement letter reads.
Onyango was born on15 May 1985 and is a professional footballer who plays for South African Premier Soccer League club Mamelodi Sundowns. He has a market value of $750,000 and has won many cups
Onyango made his international debut for Uganda Cranes on the18 June 2005 World Cup qualifying match against Cape Verde.
