Kalid Aucho Apologises to FUFA, Cranes Players and Fans over Misconduct

Uganda Cranes midfielder Khalid Aucho has apologized to his teammates at Uganda Cranes for his misconduct that led to him being dismissed from squad summoned ahead of the two crucial ties in the African Nations Cup qualifiers.

Aucho who plays for Misr El Makkasa in the Egyptian League was dismissed from Cranes Camp on Friday for his failure to adhere to the National team Code of Conduct and FUFA Circular dated 4th March, 2021.

FUFA stated that Aucho’s dismissal was due to his refusal 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 delayed to report to camp upon his arrival in the country.

The midfielder has today issued an official apology for the regrettable mistakes that led to his suspension
