In an interview with Chimpsport, the Cranes tactician Sredjovic Micho explained that together with his technical team, they decided to summon the players as a way of appreciation for their hard work during the league.

“This would enable us see what they can do and what our universities can offer to us as the national team. We are indeed grateful to the universities for nurturing those talents,” explained Micho.

The Serbian tactician, however, called upon the players to continue with studies alongside their careers in football which he said would benefit them much in the future.


He retorted, “I want them to be like Timothy Batabaire, Posnet Omony and Dennis Onyango who also combined both studies and football which has helped them a lot.”

The FUFA President Moses Magogo explained that this would help the players from universities to develop their careers in a bid to join the national team.

“The national team is for all Ugandans and that’s why we summoned these players to see if they can make a breakthrough to the national team,” noted Magogo.

He further applauded the University League and noted that it would be made a competition of its own to make it more competitive and develop the game of football in the country.

In an interview with Chimpsport, the University Football League top scorer, Siranje Musindo from the Mbarara University of Science and Technology applauded the Cranes tactician for giving the players opportunity to train with the team.
