Uganda Cranes defender Henry Kalungi has expressed his sadness at learning that Bobby Williamson has been relieved his duties as Cranes Coach and had nothing but praise for the Scot.
This comes in the wake of the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) announced on Monday morning that Williamson’s contract has been terminated.
“It’s very sad to hear that Coach Bobby is leaving the national team. It was an honour working with such a great manager and person”, read part of Kalungi’s message on facebook. “I just wish him all the best. He has done great things for our country and hope we can be grateful for that. God Bless him and will miss him”.
It should be noted that it was Bobby Williamson who handed the former KCC FC centre back who currently plies his trade with Richmond Kickers in the United States his debut against Morocco in the LG Cup in 2011.
Under Williamson, Kalungi has become a permanent fixture in the cranes team in central defence following Ibrahim Ssekagya’s retirement.
He was part two of the four Williamson’s Cecafa Tusker Challenge Cup winning squads in 2011 and 2012 and was chosen as captain for some games in the later tournament.
