Depressed KCCA FC youngster threatens to quit football
KCCA FC's Hassan Mubiru has threatened to quick football.

A 19- year- old player at KCCA FC has threatened to retire from football at a tender age over depression caused by lack of playing time by the Lugogo based club.

According to the player's agent, Hajji Adam Ntale Golooba, Hassan Mubiru who joined KCCA FC last year is frustrated by lack of playing time at Lugogo yet while joining the club, he was promised heaven on earth.

“I received information from caretakers that Mubiru was not feeling well after he had locked himself in the house. I rushed there  after being informed he was not willing to talk to anybody . He says he is   going to quit football because he trains regularly but wherever there is a match they sideline him," Ntale said.

Ntale said the latest disappointment to Mubiru came when he was not named among the players who travelled with the club to Mbale for their Stanbic Uganda Cup Round of 64 against Admin FC today.

He however noted that he will not allow the youngster's talent go to waste.

“Mubiru has a four year contract with KCCA . What I would advise KCCA FC management is to always find means of keeping players active on the pitch and where its not possible, such players should be leased out to other willing clubs.”

"He is sick and tired of the situation and wants to retire from playing football, but as his representative, I will not allow that to happen."

Ntale said the player has been taken to a physician for further management.

Contacted for a comment, KCCA FC coach, Abdallah Mubiru said he is not aware of Mubiru's situation but noted the player was fine during their last meeting.

noted that he is not aware about the current mental state of Mubiru because he was fine during their last meeting.

“I always tell the players why I have not added them on the team that will be playing and so . In the same manner, Hassan was told the reason why he won’t be playing in our next match,"Mubiru said.

He however promised to reach out to the player to find out more about his situation.
