McKinstry to miss Mutyaba

The Uganda Cranes head coach Johnathan McKinstry has 34 players in camp but he is likely to miss experienced  Mike Mutyaba during tournament.

Mutyaba missed training on Monday morning to undergo medical tests  after feeling unwell with his health on Sunday.

The player will be under supervision by both  his club  KCCA FC and Uganda Cranes medical team until final results of the tests are provided.

‘Mike Mutyaba reported to us on Saturday that he wasn’t feeling well. The doctor in camp took initial tests but it was decided that the player goes for further tests in hospital. With the insurance that players have, it has given us the chance to conduct other tests which have been completed but there is one more test to be done in conjunction with KCCA FC. At the moment it is unfortunate that we are ruling Mutyaba out of the CHAN tournament on the advice of the medical team.

KCCA FC and FUFA will continue to monitor the situation as we focus on the player’s full recovery’  said Uganda Cranes coach Johnathan Mckinstry.
