Fufa dismiss Bobby quit rumours



The Federation of Uganda Football Association (Fufa) have dismissed speculation linking Cranes coach Bobby Williamson to the Kenyan job.

A local daily on Tuesday reported that Bobby was in secret talks with Football Kenya Federation (FKF) over taking over the Harambee Stars coaching role.

But in a strongly worded statement signed by the federation’s spokesperson, Fufa distanced themselves and Bobby from the speculation.

“The federation wishes to clarify that Mr. Robert Williamson popularly known as ‘Bobby’ is still serving a running football contract with Fufa,” reads in part the document.

“The federation denies knowledge of such links and our employee too, refutes the same media reports.”

The statement, released on Tuesday, adds: “There are, however, clear procedures within the Fifa statutes, known to both Uganda and Kenya incase a federation employee of this nature wishes shift places.

“The media is therefore advised to avoid such reports that may look divisionary from our current focus a head of the World Cup qualifiers engagements due next month.”

Uganda, second on two points behind Senegal in their World Cup qualifying group, next face Liberia away next month.

Kenya are, meanwhile, on the verge of unveiling Belgian Adel Amrouche as the as the new Stars coach.
