Primus league champion APR has suspended Johnson Bagoole and Emmanuel Sebanani aka Crespo indefinitely after they absconded from club duty as the team prepares for next year’s Orange Champions League campaign.
Club secretary general Adolphe Kalisa said yesterday, “We have suspended them to indiscipline. I can’t go into details."
However, other credible source, who didn’t want to be named because he is not allowed to talk to talk to the press on behalf of the club, told this paper that Bagoole went to Vietnam without club permission while Sebanani has quit football.
Rwandan international Sebanani, 22 has quit football to join music industry, the source intimated to Times Sport, however, efforts to reached the young forward proved futile as his known mobile phone was switched off by press time.
Ugandan international Bagoole, in his second spell at the club, is reported to have gone AWOL during the Cecafa Challenge Tusker Cup in Tanzania where Rwanda reached the final for only to lose to Uganda Cranes.
The military side is undergoing intensive preparations for both Primus league and next year’s Orange Champions league.
APR plays a friendly match against a professional team drawn from Belgium this Saturday ahead of their Primus league encounter next week away to Amagaju in Nyamagabe.
The twelve-league champions are hoping to improve their preparations for Champions league with a tour of Uganda next year where they will play against top teams like URA and KCC.
APR play Kenya’s Tusker in the preliminary round first leg tie on the weekend of February 17-19, 2012 with the return leg to be played in Kigali a fortnight later.
The winner of the APR vs Tusker match will face ESS of Tunisia in the next round.
Last year, APR Fc was sent packing in the first round by Tunisia’s Club Africain, who walloped the military side 4-0 in Tunis after a first leg 2-2 tie in Kigali.Follow https://twitter.com/BonnieMugabe
