Our snoops in the Cranes set-up tell us that silky Uganda midfielder Martin Mutumba has confided in them about rumours that he could quit the national team as he is not getting enough playing time.
Mutumba, who came on in the second half in Uganda’s 1-0 loss to Senegal last weekend in a 2014 World Cup qualifier at the Stade de Marrakech in Morocco, told our source on Tuesday that he is seriously weighing up his options.
“I know how good I am and for me to play for few minutes all the time when I am even a regular in a top league like Sweden beats my understandings,” added Mutumba, who played only five minutes against Senegal and touched the ball twice.
Mutumba, who was voted best player in the friendly game against English Champions Manchester United, last month said he will go back to Sweden and make lots of consultations before he quits the national team.
However, the coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic insisted that Mutumba still has a future with the team and only has to learn to play better alongside the Cranes players.
“I have him in my plans for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers,” added Micho.
