Kampala, Uganda | URN | The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has on Monday 19, April 2021 officially parted ways with head coach Johnathan McKinstry.

According to a statement issued by FUFA, the Head Coach of the Uganda Men’s National team, McKinstry, has reached an agreement with FUFA to bring an end to his 18 months at the helm of the Uganda Cranes.

“We would like to thank Coach McKinstry for the professionalism demonstrated during his employment with FUFA, and we wish him well in all his future endeavours,” stated FUFA in the communication.

Coach McKinstry who was appointed in September 2019 and signed a 3-year contract departs Uganda having won 2 in every 3 games played, recording a 67% win rate from the 18 games he has overseen – including 12 wins, 3 draws and only 3 defeats.

Early last month FUFA asked McKinstry step a side ahead of two Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers against Burkina Faso and Malawi.
