A source that was inside the Uganda Cranes hotel has exclusively reveales negative vibes have forced veteran captain Andy Mwesigwa to quit international football bringing an end his disappointing 10 year national career.
Neither the Kamuli man nor Chrispus Muyinda, the Uganda Cranes manager has made any official announcement yet.
The impeachable revelation from inside the team Hotel Casablanca Le Lido Thalasso & Spa in Morocco insists that constant debates surrounding the player’s dismissal performance that blew apart Uganda’s Nations Cup qualification dreams on Wednesday against Guinea.
“He has already taken the decision because there are ongoing unwelcome debates about him. He has made up his mind and it was just a matter of time, when he makes the announcement,” our source reveals.
It was a Mwesigwa rough tackle that resulted in the opening goal before the central defender also dragged down an advancing striker for a penalty.
“Andy is an emotional person. I’m sure the decision he has taken is the right one for his country and him,” he says.
Uganda surrendered the second Group E slot in next year’s finals to Guinea in a match that also had Mwesigwa sent off.
Mwesigwa in his 30s is said to be in a bad state apparently. He is so disturbed with a lot going through his mind that he may consider not returning with the team to Kampala tomorrow at 1.35pm from Morocco aboard Qatar Airways.
Former Cranes star Tom Lwanga is among the many voices urging Mwesigwa to throw in the towel because he nolonger has nothing much to offer.
His peers former skipper Ibrahim Sekagya, Nestory Kizito and David Obua retired after Uganda painfully lost to Zambia (2013 Afcon qualification) on penalty shoot outs at Namboole in which he missed a decisive penalty.
