Wakiso Giants defender cum midfielder Kirizestom Ntambi has pulled out of the forthcoming 2019 CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup due to injury.
Ntambi was part of the 30-man team that was summoned by Coach Jonathan McKinstry but since then he hasn’t reported for training.
The versatile midfielder and the medical team at his club Wakiso Giants confirmed that he can’t be fit in time for the tournament.
“I have an injury that has kept me out and it’s sad that I can’t make it to the national team,” Ntambi said.
He is one of the most intelligent players currently in the league as he has capability of playing in various positions in the defense and in the midfield.
He also missed the Chan 2020 qualifier against Burundi after being involved in a boda boda accident two days to the game.
It is yet to be confirmed about who will replace him ahead of the tournament.
