In a recent exchange that sparked debate within Uganda’s football community, two prominent figures, Moses Magogo and Asan Kasingye, found themselves at odds over the importance of supporting local clubs versus foreign football.

The discussion was ignited by remarks made by Moses Magogo, President of the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA).

Magogo, in his statement, expressed gratitude towards a one Sandra Lian for her unwavering support of Ugandan club football, particularly emphasizing the impact it could have on nurturing local talent.

He stated, “Thank you so much Sandra Lian for supporting Ugandan club football more so back home unlike  Asan KAsingye who is rooting for foreign football. If we all supported our clubs we can create an opportunity for Okello, Byaruhanga, Muzaale, Kirungi, Mukasa, Onzivu etc.”

However, Asan Kasingye, the spokesperson for SC Villa, swiftly responded, defending his stance on the matter. He highlighted his contributions to local football and questioned the implication that he prioritizes foreign football over domestic leagues.
