Uganda Cranes Fans Side with Mutumba for Echoing against Little Time He’s Given on the National Team



By Tuhairwe Joab


The Uganda Cranes fans have come out to side with their new star skipper Martin Mutumba Kayongo who features for AIK Stockholm for being given little time to play on a national team.

It should be noted that when Martin Mutumba got known as a Ugandan player based in Sweden, he was summoned to come and play for the Cranes during Bobby Williamson’s regime. During his reign, Bobby called Mutumba for a game against Congo as his first encounter with the national team and later on against Libya where he was given a match as a starter. Since then, Martin has not featured on Uganda Cranes first eleven squad. This was at first taken for a tactic until the player himself sent an outcry to his coach Micho.

“I start for my team back in Sweden and I think I deserve more time, but if am not important for the team, I think I better concentrate on my club football,” said Mutumba.

After the game against Senegal in Marrakesh Morocco, Mutumba threatened to relinquish the national football duties basing on a factor that he’s given little time to play and therefore can’t create any impact on the team.

He was brought in at 81 minutes and according to him, he was only able to touch the ball only twice and therefore nothing he could do to avert the result.

His fans in Uganda however sided with their star arguing that he is given little time and therefore gets no chance to show what he can do. They therefore begged the national head coach to give him more time on the pitch because they think he is what the national team wants in a player. They also urged him to calm down and talk to his coach than putting down the tools as he had announced when they still expect a lot of him.
