Uganda and Kampala Capital City Authority goalkeeper Benjamin Ochan says the next few days will decide his future with KCCA.
The goalkeeper was left out of the 2018 CAF Champions League squad by coach Mike Mutebi, fuelling talks that he is set to leave the club.
Mike Mutebi has decided to exclude the experienced keeper linked with a move to Zambia and following the arrival of Thomas Ikara.
“We also believe that custodians Thomas Ikara, Jamal Maliyamungu and Charles Lukwago can do the job instead of Ochan,” Mutebi told upl.co.ug
On the other hand, Ochan says he remains grateful to the club whatever the decision they will take, saying he has enjoyed his time at Lugogo.
“I have no qualms whichever decision,” he said to Kawowo Sports.
“I just thank the club for the time and I must say, even if I leave, I always remain grateful.
“I have up to this moment enjoyed my time at Lugogo. I have won the league and cup double and also reached the CAF Confederation Cup group stages all thanks to KCCA.
“I think I will know much in the next 2-3 days about my future.”
Ochan rejoined KCCA in the 2014/15 season and has been the club’s first choice keeper until he lost the position to Charles Lukwago after four games into the 2017/18 seas
