Joel Madondo: Denied training, threatens to return home on the next airport open

Joel Madondo

Frustrated Joel Madondo is seeking to return home to Uganda after being denied training by his club Wydad Casablanca.

“All I am praying for is for the airports to be opened,” Madondo disclosed to his countryman and fellow player Abdul Lumala via a Facebook live chat.

For the past two months, Madondo has been in the spotlight with his bosses after the player came out claiming that the club had neglected him in a hotel room with ‘big bills to pay’.

However, a few days later the same player came out via a video recording denying statements he had made earlier with claims that everything was fine and that his relationship with the club was all good.

According to the information we got last week, Wydad Casablanca returned to training ahead of a possible league return. A sober Mandondo approached the training grounds to team up with his teammates for a usual training however, he was denied access.

“I went there the other day, and I was denied access to the training ground,” he revealed to Lumala before adding that “I again went back and one of the coaches told me to talk to the Head Coach, Juna Carlos Garrido who’s away in Spain, when I called him, he told me to first sort my issues with the club.

“I gave up on going back and decided to do my training from home. I also go for the road works,” he added.

‘Enough is enough’, that is the feeling that Mandondo is having right now and he thinks that his only way out is to return home where he could be at peace and after securing his passport.

He says he is only waiting for the airports which were closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic to be opened again.

“It’s better that I finally have my passport with me and all am praying for is for the airports to open.”

“All I want now is to return home and have some peace. I have been through a lot since I arrived here.” He concluded

Madondo joined the Moroccan giants in January this year on a three-year contract and he has only participated in two league games.
