Sserunkuma will join team – Bobby



The Uganda Cranes camp has dismissed reports that Gor Mahia striker Daniel Sserunkuma has turned down a call-up to the national team.

This is after Sserunkuma was quoted on SuperSport.com saying he will not be available since he will be busy with his club in their final two engagements in the league and FA Cup.

His reason I, however, ambiguous given that during Cecafa (November 24-December 8) the Kenyan league could be on a break.

Sserunkuma was named by coach Bobby Williamson in his 30-man squad to prepare for the tournament that will be held in Kampala.

The Scot was taken aback when SuperSport.com relayed to him news that Sserunkuma had turned down the call-up but dismissed the reports saying he will have to hear it first hand from the player.

“The boy told Jackson (Mayanja – Bobby’s assistant) he will be joining the team,” said Bobby, adding, “Unless I hear it from him, he will join us for the tournament.”

Mayanja expounded and reiterated Sserunkuma will join the rest of the team after his final two engagements with his club.

“I first talked to Sserunkuma three days ago,” said Mayanja, “I told him ‘we are going to call you, how do you feel about it, will you be available?’

“And the boy said he would be around I again talked to him before we released the squad and he said for now he will first concentrate on his final two games – the league match and an FA Cup game – and after that he would join the rest.”

But sources close to the player claim he fears he will be used by Uganda in Cecafa and later be discarded in favour of the seasoned campaigners as has been in some cases in Uganda.

Should that happen, it would hamper Sserunkuma’s chances of playing for Kenya, the country he has since opened arms to.
