It’s up to Henry – Bobby



Uganda Cranes coach Bobby Williamson is unimpressed by Henry Kalungi’s quitting on future Cecafa tournaments.

The 25-year-old defender surprisingly came out on Monday to announce he had called time on the competition just two days after Uganda lifted their 13th title.

The Carolina RailHawks player had partaken in two Cecafa tournaments, winning both, at the time of announcing his decision.

But Kalungi, who argued he wanted to give a chance to other upcoming youngsters to play in the regional tournament, however, reiterated his availability for other international engagements.

Speaking to supersport.com, his coach, Bobby, sounded astonished at the defender’s decision.

“(It’s) up to him to make himself available,” said Bobby, adding, “If he wants to open the door for someone else that’s up to Henry.”

Bobby also used the opportunity to dismiss talk that Kalungi’s latest stance is yet another indication that Cecafa has lost its lure.

“(I) don’t think it waters down Cecafa,” said the Scot, whose Cecafa title on Saturday when Uganda beat Kenya 2-1 was his fourth in as many years in charge of the Cranes.

“This tournament goes on for a long time and gives me a chance to work with players and get them on the same wave length.”
