The federation of Uganda football associations has confirmed parting ways with the national men’s football team coach Jonathan Mckinstry.
A statement from the federation stated that an agreement has been reached between the coach and the federation to have his contract terminated.
“We would like to thank Coach Mckinstry and his staff for the work and dedication towards developing the Uganda Cranes during their tenure”
Mckinstry’s tenure has lasted only 18 months having taken over in September 2019 following the resignation of Frenchman Sebastian Desabre. He was signed on a 3 year contract.
FUFA initially put Mckinstry’s service on a pose following a string of poor results that saw Uganda fail to qualify for AFCON 2021.
The Northern Irishman also led Uganda to an unsuccessful CHAN tournament that saw the Cranes fail to make the knock out stages.
The final two AFCON qualifying matches between Burkina Faso and Malawi were overseen by Abdallah Mubiru and Charles Livingston Mbabazi on interim basis
