Just a day after KCCA FC manager, Mike Mutebi railed at Fufa for summoning midfielder Brian Majwega, Cranes coach Milutin Sredojevic “Micho” has come out to defend his decision.
On Tuesday, Mike Mutebi did not have kind words for the Federation and his counterpart, Micho for summoning Majwega who he claims disappeared away from KCCA FC.
“He hasn’t been here for close to a month and is called on the national team. This is a player that belongs to KCCA FC, how does the national team invite him without consulting us?” Mutebi furiously asked before the team departed for Tunisia on Tuesday.
However, Micho has come out to state his case on the matter, indicating he did not commit any crime calling the player on the national team.
“If anyone has anything to speak, let that happen when the national team and KCCA FC engagements are done,” Micho started.
“As far as I know, Majwega is not actively playing with KCCA FC, he has not been considered for the recent games. I do not think I have summoned anyone who is engaged at KCCA FC. We respect the fact they are representing the nation and therefore I cannot disturb them for now,” he explained.
Micho adds that he is free to summon any Ugandan as long as he is eligible to play for the national team.
Majwega stopped training at KCCA FC about a month ago, claiming the club has failed to fulfil the promises.
It is believed the player agreed a sign on fee of Shs15m at the start of the season but the player says the club haven’t remitted the money.
Majwega signed a three year contract at the start of the season returning to KCCA FC for the second stint.
However, Majwega’s controversial personality is not new, having fallen out with Tanzanian teams Azam FC and Simba SC on disciplinary grounds.
