Milton Karisa is among the 34 players summoned in Uganda Cranes provisional squad for the forthcoming CHAN tournament to be held in Cameroon.
Karisa recently re-joined Vipers SC in the mid-season transfer window from Morocco and has only played three games since his return.
Cranes coach Jonathan McKinstry explained why Karisa has been named in the 34-man squad.
” I spoke to Karisa when he was still in North Africa and I have previously worked with him when we were preparing for a friendly game against Ethiopia. I believe in his abilities.” McKinstry said.
” Unfortunately, he had a tough time in Morocco but that had nothing to do with his personal abilities. We were trying to help him find a club in Europe but unfortunately we ran short of time as the transfer window was ending. I advised him to find a club in the UPL and you saw him scoring yesterday.” He adds
Karisa scored one goal and assisted twice before coming off in Vipers 5-0 win over Maroons at St. Mary’s Kitende.
He was part of the squad that represented Uganda in the 2018 CHAN tournament held in Morocco.
