Robert Odongkara: Uganda Goalkeeper Leaves Horoya
Uganda Cranes goalkeeper Robert Odongkara has been released by Horoya AC, ending a two-year stay at Guinean top-flight outfit.
Odongkara joined the club in August 2019 from Ethiopia Premier League Adama City and has made only 13 appearances for the club.
Uganda’s third choice goalkeeper, Odongkara leaves Conakry as his contract has expired.
“We thank Robert Odongkara for his time with us. We wish him fruitful endeavors” Horoya Athletic Club said in a statement.
There is understood to be interest from his former club St George of Ethiopia in his services, with both Ugandan sides URA and Express linked with the 31-year old.
Goalkeeper Khadim Ndiaye, 36, who was out of action for almost two years due to an injury, returned to full fitness forcing the club to release the Ugandan.
Odongkara had been warming the bench due to stiff completion from the trio of Sekou Sylla, Camara Mousaa and Khadim Ndiaye.
Odongkara has played for Mupero Tanda FC, Sports Club Villa and Uganda Revenue Authority Football Club in his native Uganda.
He made his Cranes debut in 2010 and he has appeared in FIFA World Cup and African Cup of Nations qualifying matches Uganda.
He made only one appearance at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, playing nine minutes of a 1–1 draw in the group stages with Mali.
