FOOTBALL–KCCA FC midfielder Allan Katerega has today morning not turned up for training in a move that confirms he intends to leave the Kasasiro Boys.
The Former SC Victoria University who was released by AFC Leopards in November has been in contract talks with the two time Azam UPL champions for the last couple of weeks.
The talks with KCCA broke down earlier last week when reports surfaced that he is poised for a move to Czech Republic Grampus league although the identity of the team is yet to be known.
KCCA offered Katerega a two year contract worth 48 million shillings plus a sign on fee of 20,000 Us dollars which he gladly turned down.
It is belived that he intended to sign for KCCA so as to be able to play in the upcoming CHAN tournament in Morocco for the national team but after learning that even the move could not enable him take part in the said tourny, he opted for greener pastures abroad after KCCA failed to accept his demands.
Katerega was initially summoned in the 30 man provisional squad for CHAN but was later dropped after FUFA learnt that his deal with Kenyan side AFC Leopards could not allow him to play in the tournament.
He was part of the CECAFA team that finished third in Kenya last month and he is highly tipped to be one of the lads to take the national team forward especially in the under performing midfield department.
At KCCA for whom he signed a short term loan deal last August, Katerega has put up outstanding performances and in the process named man of the match on three occasions also growing into a fans favourite in the process.
Katerega leaves KCCA with three goals and as many assists this season and with Muzamir Mutyaba and Saddam Juma misfiring coupled by Jackson Nunda’s injury issues, Mike Mutebi will have to find an instant solution to the midfield department that’s if the Kasasiro Boys want to win the league for a third year running.
KCCA are second on the log, three points behind leader SC Villa at the conclusion of the first round.
The league returns at the conclusion of the CHAN tournament which ends on fourth February.
