Ugandan player Asumani Halishe has reportedly opted not to extend his stay at Mbarara City after the club replaced him as the captain. 

According to reports, the versatile centre-back fell out with the club due to his frequent absenteeism, especially for domestic friendlies.

Additional reports from the club suggest that Halishe didn’t travel the team to Onduparaka in the league citing personal problems despite being part of the squad that was meant for the game.

It is due to his lack of sportsmanship that head coach Livingstone Mbabazi decided to strip him of the armband and replaced him fellow central defender Hilary Mukundane.

It’s reported that after the decision was announced at the training ground, the defender immediately revealed that he was leaving the club.

Alishe joined the Ankole Lions in July 2017 in a one and half year deal from Bul FC.

However, Halishe has been heavily linked with a move to record league holders SC Villa where he played between 2009 and 2011.
