SC Villa left back Derrick Ndahiro has taken a bold decision to play for Rwanda’s Amavubi Stars.
This comes after frustration and long wait for national team football which he says can’t come true if he insists on playing for Uganda.
Ndahiro follows the foot steps of another Ugandan defender Denis Rukundo who currently features for the Rwanda National team.
Ndahiro nearly featured for Rwanda’s U23 national team in 2019 after taking part in their preparation training camp for AFCON qualifiers before he changed his mind with the love to play for Uganda Cranes.
The SC Villa left back Derrick Ndahiro was part of the Uganda’s U23 squad summoned for the two friendly games against Saudi Arabia in Riyadh as part their preparation for the CECAFA championship set for this month in Ethiopia.
However, Ndahiro failed to cut into Molly Byekwaso’s final traveling squad to Riyadh as the tactician preferred Wakiso Giants’ George Kaddu at the expense of Ndihiro.
His (Ndahiro) decision comes after an interaction with the Amavubi Stars coach Vicente Amashami
Ndahiro is expected to feature for Rwanda National team in the near future shortly after his documentation process that starts this monda comes through.
It’s a great move for the player who would hardly have a chance in Uganda, however, it’s bad news to Uganda as a nation.
