Details have emerged why the national U17 coach Fabian Apa Kwasi fled the country just two months after being unveiled. FUFA, in a statement, announced that they had agreed to with Kwasi to end the contract between the two parties by mutual consent.
“FUFA is happy with the work done by Mr. Kwasi in the period he has been in Uganda. However a request by the coach to go and handle family matters back home saw the (FUFA) Executive consent,” read part of the statement released on Wednesday.
According to reliable sources close to the Ghanaian coach, his mum is headed for an operation in India and is in the center of preparations whilst his wife is based in England.
“He pleaded to FUFA to terminate the contract so as to oversee her mum’s operation in India. He still wanted to continue and also FUFA had no issues with him,” a source told Pepper Sport. Kwasi, who was appointed on March 20 with a one-year contract, was in charge of the Uganda U-17 team which participated in the AFCON Finals in Tanzania in April.
