Uganda Cranes and Wydad Casablanca striker Joel Madondo finally got a breather having been part of the team players that tested for the Coronavirus prior to the team’s training sessions.
Madondo was recently reported to have fallen out with his bosses at Moroccan side, Wydad having gone three months without salary payments on top of being neglected in an apartment.
Last week, the former Busoga United forward also cried foul of being denied access to training with the rest of his teammates and was only restricted to personal drills.
On Friday, however, there was a sigh of relief when the Ugandan joined other team players in testing for the Coronavirus as the club prepares to resume serious training sessions prior to league and continental football resumption.
According to reliable sources, Madondo could be pardoned and be part of the team that will take part in the training sessions as the Botola Pro League nears return.
Madondo who joined Wydad Casablanca in January this year from Uganda Premier League side Busoga United and has only featured in two league matches; against El-Moutaraji and Diffa El-Jadida.
The Moroccan Botola Pro league will be back on 24th July following a four month Covid-19 break. Wydad are the table leaders on 36 points from 18 games.
When the CAF Champions League returns in September, Wydad Casablanca will play against Egyptian giants Al Ahly in a two legged semifinal tie where the aggregate winner will book a berth in the final.
