Uganda Cranes and Kampala City Council holding midfielder, Ivan ‘Kojja’ Ntege has left the country to seek greener pastures in Albania.

The diminutive but hard working midfield icon is reportedly said to be in talks with Albanian top club, FC Tirana.

Ntege, who was one of the unused substitutes during Uganda’s 2 – 0 win over Mauritania in the first leg is a free agent at KCC after his contract with the league champions expired in June 2014.

“Ntege approached us officially and he was released from camp”, Micho, Uganda Cranes coach confirms the development.

His former pay masters at KCC were excited about the development when Kawowo Sports broke the news.

“Ntege has been no doubt one of our best players. We wish him fruitful deliberations”, Allan Ssewanyana, an official at KCC said.

Ntege played a pivotal a role in KCC’s back to back league title quest and was instrumental for the Cranes at the 2014 CHAN championships in South Africa.

David Isabirye is a senior staff writer for Kawowo Sports where he covers most of the major events.
