Ugandans are in a confusion mode as more top players continue to mysteriously quit the national team-the cranes with the latest being Express FC defender Murushid Juuko.
Juuko confirmed the development in a letter he addressed to the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) today.
He has served at Uganda Cranes since July 11th, 2014 when he made his debut as the Cranes crushed Seychelles national team 1-0.
Juuko previously played for Wydad Casablanca in Morocco, Simba in Tanzania and Bunamwaya now Vipers.
He was part of the Cranes squad that played in the Africa Cup of Nations in 2017 and 2019 in Gabon and Egypt.
He joins other players who retired from the national team last year including Denis Onyango, Hassan Wasswa, and Mike Azira.
Their retirement generated heated debate in a Parliamentary Committee questioning the sudden exits of the experienced stars.
Busia County representative Geoffrey Macho said Onyango, Azira and Wasswa might have left due to an alleged poor relationship with Fufa president Moses Magogo.
