Kizito denies Cranes return

An attempt by Fufa to lift the mood in the wake of defeat to Congo Brazzaville by declaring Nestroy Kizito had come out of retirement has left them more egg-faced than clean-shaven.

Fufa publicist Rogers Mulindwa at a Friday news conference in Mengo said the defender, who quit three weeks ago, had "told us that he was being disturbed by issues to do with his club but now that he is close to getting a new club, he has reconsidered and decided to return to the Cranes." Even worse, Cranes coach Bobby Williamson admitted he heard of the "U-turn" in the same room with the media.

"Yeah, Iíve just heard it now," he innocently told us after, "Thatís fantastic news." But the former Partizan defender,said he has surprisingly been - and still is - in Entebbe for the last two months, strongly dismissed the alleged U-turn.

"No," said Kizito, 29. "Not now. First of all, I didnít want people to just speculate, so when I reached the decision of retiring, I officially wrote to Fufa.

"But since I wrote that letter, no one from Fufa has ever called me, so we canít have talked. "I respect the national team, fans, players and Fufa, so I had to officially inform them of my retirement through the letter to Fufa and my coach (Bobby). For me, fans are the most important, so they need to know the truth."

Kizito, who said he is still here for a few more weeks, added: "As for David (Obua) and Ibra (Sekagya), Itís not true they influenced my retirement.
"I havenít talked to Obua since last year and capi (Sekagya) just called me to ask if it was true when he heard I had retired."

Kizito, now a free agent after falling out with Partizan late last year, said he first told Bobby of his retirement intentions after the game against Kenya in October but the coach advised him to first think about it.

"I thought about it and was convinced I needed to rest and give youngsters a chance and also settle my club issues.

"I donít have a club now and Iím not prepared for Cranes, so I canít come back."
Asked what then if he got a club now, he replied: "You can never say never but itís not true I have returned to the Cranes."
