FUFA likely to sack Uganda Cranes coach Johnathan McKinstry

According to

Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has decided to terminate the employment contract of Johnathan McKinstry as head coach of Uganda Cranes.

A source that preferred anonymity told this website that FUFA will soon make the decision official, confirming the sacking of the Irishman.

“A decision was reached and it is just a matter of making it official,” confirmed the source.

McKinstry who has been in charge of the National Team since September 2019 had signed a three-year contract that still has a running period of 17 months.

With reports that he was being paid US$15,000 (Shs55m) monthly, sacking him means FUFA will have to pay US$255,000 (Shs943m) as compensation.

It should be noted that the Federation asked McKinstry to step aside at the start of last month (March) following the dismal performance at the 2020 African Nations Championship (CHAN).

He was suspended for a month and the team handed to his assistant Abdallah Mubiru for the two final qualifying games of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations against Burkina Faso and Malawi – Mubiru failed to guide the team back to AFCON,

Since the end of his suspension at the start of this month, Mckinstry has been in constant engagement with FUFA with the last coming on 6th April when he met FUFA President, Eng. Moses Magogo and FUFA CEO, Edgar Watson

However, FUFA through it’s social media handle has denied the allegation of sacking Johnathan McKinstry

Our dear football stakeholders, FUFA has not taken any decision as reported in various media outlets regarding the status of
