Uganda Cranes head coach Johnathan McKinstry has been asked to step aside form his duties for a month by the Federation of Uganda Football Association ( FUFA).

The revelation was made on Tuesday evening by FUFA in a statement circulated to the media.

“The FUFA Executive Committee has asked the Head Coach of the National Senior side-The Uganda Cranes Mr. Johnathan McKinstry to step aside from managing and coaching the team for the period from 2nd- 31st March 2021,” reads a statement on the FUFA website.

The Uganda Cranes will play Burkina Faso in the 2021 African Cup of nations qualifiers on March 24  before travelling to take on Malawi in their last qualification game.

Uganda sits second on the log with seven points garnered in 4 games after disappointingly losing 1-0 to South Sudan in Kenya.

McKinstry replaced Sebastien Desabre as the Cranes head coach in 2019 and has been in charge of 14 games, winning nine, drawing twice and losing the other three.

FUFA has furthermore confirmed that Assistant Coaches Abdallah Mubiru, Livingstone Mbabazi, and goalkeeping coach Fred Kajoba will take charge of the team during this period.

“In the meantime Assistant Coaches Mr. Mubiru Abdallah, Mr. Mbabazi Livingstone and goalkeeping coach Mr. Kajoba Fred will take charge of the team during this period.The rest of the Technical team remains unchanged.”
