Fufa has suspended midfielder Allan Kateregga from the Uganda national team for four months for indiscipline.
The midfielder fell out with the fitness coach Gerome D’antonioin in the 2019 Afcon in Egypt and allegedly hurled abusive words and threatened him as well.
The Disciplinary Committee has opted to suspend the player and warn him about dire consequences if the same happens again.
“The disciplinary proceedings of improper conduct relating to the use of abusive and threatening words were opened against Allan Kateregga,” read the statement obtained by Sports Africa.
“It was alleged that Allan Kateregga conducted himself in an improper way on 26th June 2019 during the Uganda Cranes training session in Cairo, Egypt, when he hurled insults, used threatening, abusive and discriminatory words and statements towards the Uganda Cranes fitness coach Gerome D’antonio.
“Kateregga responded to the proceedings and stated that he had apologized to the fitness coach Gerome D’antonio and further apologized for his behaviour.”
The Committee further stated the former AFC Leopards player was found guilty of the aforementioned vice and action had to be taken.
“The Disciplinary Committee found that that the Uganda Cranes player Allan Kateregga’s conduct (use of threatening and abusive words) on 26th June 2019 breached the FUFA Disciplinary Code Article 85 (improper Conduct), Article 82 and 83 (football not to be brought into disrepute).
“Equally, in accordance with Article 84, the misconduct is punishable regardless of whether they have been committed unintentionally or negligently.
“Allan Kateregga is cautioned for his actions as these actions cannot be tolerated in the game of football.
“Kateregga is hereby sanctioned with a suspended four months ban from taking part in the national representative teams’ activities. Should Allan conduct himself in similar incidents, the suspended sanction shall automatically be imposed.”
The Cranes are currently preparing to host South Sudan in the 2021 Afcon Qualifier on the 28th of March.
