Khalid Aucho apologizes to Fufa

Uganda Cranes midfielder Khalid Aucho has apologised after he was suspended from the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Aucho was pulled out of the squad preparing for the Burkina Faso and Malawi games.

The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (Fufa) cited matters of indiscipline as reasons for Aucho’s dismissal.

However, the former Gor Mahia midfielder has now expressed remorse for the development.

“I am remorseful and I take full responsibility for the actions that led to my suspension from the national team camp for the forthcoming Afcon qualifiers against Burkina Faso and Malawi,” Aucho said in a statement.

“I regret my actions and I am ready to put this chapter behind me as it is a dream to represent my country.”

“To Fufa, fellow players, fans, and friends; I can only say I am sorry.”

“Also I accept the fact that many of you will not believe my apology or anything that I say at this point but this is my only official statement and it is from the bottom of my heart.”

“I wish the Uganda Cranes success in the two encounters and I hope for the best. See you soon,” he added.

Aucho sympathised

Although Aucho has accepted to shoulder the blame, he has received sympathy from Allan Kateregga who came out to encourage his midfield teammate.

“To you, my brother Khalid Aucho, the greatest glory in living lies not in falling, but in rising every time we fall,” Kateregga.

 “This shall pass and you shall be back stronger and better,” he added.

Uganda are in camp for the March 24 encounter against Burkina Faso before an away tie against The Flames on March 29.
