Local football governing body FUFA has dismissed Khalid Aucho from Uganda Cranes Camp for alleged failure to adhere to the National team Code of Conduct.
Aucho was summoned to camp by stand-in coach Abdallah Mubiru despite being sent off during their last qualifier against South Sudan played at Nyayo Stadium in Kenya.
And according to FUFA, Aucho refused to board the official means of transport organised to pick him from Entebbe International Airport to the team camp at Cranes Paradise Hotel-Kisasi and has not even reported to camp since his arrival in the country.
“The player’s club Misr El Makkasa and Egypt Football Association A have duly been informed about the decision and a return air ticket has been issued to him for his travel back to Egypt,” says FUFA in a statement.
