Magogo Applauds Wasswa

The former jogoo player hung up his boots after 13 years at the national team and the FUFA president has lauded him for the work done.

Fufa president Moses Magogo has paid a glowing tribute to Hassan Wasswa who announced his retirement from the national team on Friday.

Magogo has described the former Crane as one who worked hard whenever he was turning out for the national team and picked the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations as one of his best periods playing for the country.

“Well done, Hassan Wasswa,” Magogo wrote on his facebook page on Sunday.

“It is with great honor that I receive the news of the retirement of Hassan Wasswa from the national football team. Players rarely do this.

“Say anything you want about Hassan but whenever he stepped on the pitch for training or a friendly or competitive match, he is one of the few players who always gave 200%. He really hated to lose.

“I think I never saw a goal scored by Hassan at the national team although he claims one against Kenya in the Cecafa finals in Kampala he made up this by splendid performances in the midfield and the heart of Uganda defence.”

The head of the FA has also revealed plans to organise a testimonial tournament for the midfielder, who earned his debut in 2006 and went on to play in a number of Afcon and World Cup qualifiers, among other tournaments, for the Cecafa record champions.

“13 years with 75 caps at the senior level has earned Wasswa a testimonial match organised by Fufa at an appropriate time,” Magogo continued.

 “He will determine the line-ups and what the collections of the match will be used in accordance with his decision.”

Magogo Applauds Wasswa

Although Magogo has praised the former SC Villa star, Wasswa hit out at him especially on his criticism of the players who played in the 2021 African Nations Championship in Cameroon.

“You know when things are moving badly, they shift blame elsewhere, so, Magogo came out and told people they played sh**ty football but he is the very person who appointed the technical team that summoned the players who played sh**ty football.
