Magogo deflects blame to Desabre, Uganda Cranes team amidst match fixing claims

The Fufa president Eng. Moses Magogo has absolved himself and his administration of any faults after Uganda Cranes’ humiliating loss to Tanzania on Sunday night.

The Cranes had already qualified for the finals ahead of the final clash albeit without conceding a single goal but were thrashed 3-0 as the Tanzanians qualified for their first time in 39 years.

Football fans turned to express their disappointments during and after the match as some claimed that the Uganda Cranes could have fixed the game to allow Tanzania to qualify.

Magogo says that he is also hurt with the results that he termed “the worst” in his tenure as head of the federation.

“This is the worst result of the Uganda Cranes in my administration,” he posted adding that, “No one can feel more disappointed than me. As administration we provided everything the technical team and players wanted.

Shifts blame

Magogo has come out and asked those blaming him and his administration to come out and give reasons why Fufa is to be blamed and not the coach and his team.


“I want to listen to any explanation why it is not the coach and the team responsible for this dismal performance but the FUFA President and/or the administration. Now is the time for the coaches to explain their selections and tactics but not before the match. We will wait for the technical explanations from the technical team of the match.”

Paid allowances

The Fufa chief went further to reveal that the team had been promised US$ 2,500 for a win and Us$ 1,500 for a draw.

He also stated that all the outstanding allowances and bonus had been cleared prior to the match despite not receiving any funds from the National Council of Sports.
