Barely a full season after joining Egyptian side Tanta SC, former Vipers midfielder Taddeo Lwanga has been released by the club according to Kingfut.com.
Lwanga is among the bunch of Uganda Cranes players that caught the attention of Egyptian clubs following the Cranes’ impressive performance after reaching the round of 16 at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in the North African country.
He has been released alongside Gabon’s Mario Bernard who also joined the club at the start of the currently halted Egyptian season but has failed to impress making just five appearances in all competitions.
Lwanga and Mario won’t be part of Tanta’s squad that will return to football action in three weeks time with the Egyptian Premier League’s resumption set for August 6th, 2020.
The 26-year old who had become a regular for his team, had managed eleven appearances across all competitions with a single assist before the coronavirus pandemic took center stage.
As teams gear up for restart of the halted season in Egypt, Tanta find themselves in 15th position on 16 points on the 18-team log.
Locally, the Uganda Cranes midfielder played for both rivals Express FC and SC Villa and then later on Vipers where he spent two years winning the 2017/2018 Uganda Premier League trophy.
The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) is set to reduce the number of foreign players from five to four in each top flight team effective next season.
