It is time to say goodbye. I would never have thought that in such a short time, being part of something as big as “The Gazelles” would make me feel like a coach in such a deep way. We made history.

Just Thank You, especially to the players. Those of you who accompanied me in February and/or Afrobasket, thank you FUBA and President Nasser (Sserunjogi). I’m sure it’s not goodbye but until next time UG.” posted Atuna
