Cranes star quits Cecafa



Uganda defender Henry Kalungi will not be part of the Cranes future Cecafa tournaments after calling it quits from the regional competition on Monday.

However, the Carolina utility player will continue playing for the national team in other international engagements.

Kalungi, who returns to the US on Tuesday to join his club, argues that it’s time other upcoming players are given a chance.

“He wants to give other younger stars a chance to also develop through the Cranes ranks,” the defender’s agent, Ivan Kakembo, told SuperSport.com.

Kalungi announced his retirement from the annual regional competition at a luncheon held for the players in Kampala on Monday following Cranes feat of lifting a record-breaking 13th title on Saturday when they beat Kenya 2-1 in the final.

The 25-year-old defender, whom the just ended Cecafa was his second, was part of the Cranes protective unit including Isaac Isinde plus fullbacks Godfrey Walusimbi and Denis Guma that conceded just one goal in the competition.
