Striker Madondo to Return Home as Rift With Parent Club Wydad Widens

Uganda Cranes striker Joel Madondo’s tenure at Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca could have hit a dead end amidst a sustaned poor run of form since his arrival at the club in January.

The latest from the forward indicates that the club has denied him access to conduct training with the rest of the team and has embarked on personal drills.

This all started two weeks ago when the former Kirinnya Jinja SS forward (now Busoga United) came out to cry foul of being abandoned in a rented apartment without pay from the club since March.

Madondo was thereafter paid by his bosses to zero balance. However, this seemingly sparked off a fall out between the two parties.

During his Saturday Facebook chat with another Cranes winger in Abdu Lumala who plays for Egyptian side, Pyramids, Madondo disclosed that he has been denied access to the team’s training sessions as the club is prepares for the resumption of the domestic and continental football campaign.

“The club has already resumed training as they are preparing for the resumption of the league and CAF Champions League but I went there the other day and I was denied access to the training ground,” Madondo said.

He added, ‘‘I went back to training and the conditioning coach Diego Megias told me to talk to the head coach Juna Carlos Garrido who is currently in Spain. When I called him, he told me I should first settle my issues with the club.”

With the current situation seemingly not user-friendly, Madondo is contemplating about returning home to jump start his professional career.


“The team previously gave me back my passport and I’m only waiting for the airport to open. All I want now is to return home and have some peace as I have faced a lot of challenges since I arrived here,’’ he said.
