Khalid Aucho, the Uganda Cranes Midfielder has apologized for the mistakes that he made that led to his dismissal from the national team.
FUFA, the football governing body in Uganda announced on Friday that the Egypt-based midfielder had been dismissed from the camp. His dismissal came as the team prepared for the final Afcon qualifying games between Malawi and Burkina Fuso
Khalid refused to adhere to the National team Code of Conduct. He declined to board the official means of transport organized to pick him from Entebbe International Airport to the team camp. To add salt to the injury, he failed to report to the team camp at Cranes Paradise Hotel in Kisaasi after his arrival in the country. This, therefore, forced FUFA to dismiss him.
However, on Sunday, Aucho issued a statement in which he took full responsibility for his actions. He accepted the punishment that he received and was very quick to apologize.
‘’I am remorseful and I take full responsibility for the mistakes that led to my suspension from the national team camp. For the forthcoming AFCON qualifiers against Burkina Faso and Malawi. I regret my actions and am ready to put this chapter behind me as it’s a dream to represent my country. To FUFA, fellow players, fans, family, and friends; I can only say I’m sorry,’’ Aucho said in the statement.
Fans on social media, however, came out to ridicule FUFA over punishing the player. They claim they suspended Khalid Aucho because of his support toward Robert Kyagulanyi. He, however, did not say anything concerning the political topic anywhere in his apology.
The FUFA President, Eng. Moses Magogo later warned that it is wrong to mix football with politics. Many Ugandans on social media were doing.
