Cranes midfielder and AIK FC utility player Martin Kayongo Mutumba returned home this Wednesday morning for treatment following an injury he sustained during the Senegal game five days ago.

Mutumba left aboard British Airways to London where he was due to connect to Stockholm City. Before leaving camp, Mutumba got encouraging words from his Coach Bobby Williamson. “He is a good coach and he has encouraged me to continue with light trainings as I undergo treatment. He will continue monitoring my performance”, said Mutumba before he left Entebbe.

Commenting on the recent negative local press coverage about him, Mutumba down played it and instead promised to prove his critics wrong in the near future. “I wouldn’t be playing in AIK if I wasn’t a good player. I played well in Angola but Namboole wasn’t my day. I chose to play for Uganda and I shall be here again to prove my worth” he emphasized.

Mutumba further added, “The same press will praise me when I do well. I don’t mind about what they write because the challenge is mine to prove my ability”.

“To all my fans I only say that patience pays. They shouldn’t lose heart but I pray for Uganda to advance to the next level so that I have a chance to feature for the Cranes in September”, said Mutumba who sounded confident of earning his team better results in future.
