Former Uganda Cranes coach Johnathan Mckinstry is in talks with Premier Soccer League side in South Africa Cape Town City, Football256 has learnt
Cape Town City are currently coached by Dutchman Jan Olde Riekerink who was placed on administrative leave by his bosses until further notice.
City are currently seventh on the Dstv Premiership table but have endured a very topsy-turvy season according to reports in South Africa.
The chances of Riekerink are slim and since McKinstry has been in touch with the management of the Cape Town side.
Cape Town City recently went on a three-game winning streak only after chief executive John Comitis publicly rebuked the team after a run that saw them fail to claim all three points for eight straight matches.
McKinstry has been jobless since he was sacked by FUFA after a poor run of results that saw Uganda fail to make an impact at the 2020 African nations Championship.
Uganda drew once and loat twice to Rwanda, Togo and Morocco respectively, failing to make it out of the group stages.
He was then suspended for month as Uganda went into the final two games of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers.
The Cranes failed to book the ticket to Cameroon, and weeks later the federation announced that they had mutually ended their relationship with Irishman.
At just 34, Mckinstry has coached the Sierra Leone and Rwanda national football team’s, he has also coached club football in Bangladesh.
