Uganda Cranes forward Emmanuel Okwi could just be on the move again should the writings on the wall become more clearer to read in due course.
The 27-year-old who joined Ittihad Alexandria in 2019 after a successful AFCON campaign which saw him net twice has camped in Uganda since March following the coronavirus pandemic outbreak and subsequent lockdown of the country.
Football256 couldn’t independently verify this by press time but reports indicate Okwii could have ended his marriage with the Alexandria based club over financial disagreements.
Ittihad announced on their Twitter handle that the team will reassemble in Alexandria on Sunday as they step up their preparations for their first post COVID-19 league game against Al Masry on Tuesday.
“The club will hold a closed door camp starting from Sunday in Alexandria until the Al-Masry meeting scheduled for next Tuesday,” Read part of the tweet.
And although the airport is still shut down in Uganda, people can fly out so long as your destinations have their airports opened up which is the case in Egypt.
Azam FC and Uganda Cranes right back Nicholas Wadada and striker Fahad Bayo who recently joined Ashdod FC in Israel are just some of the players who have flown out to join their respective clubs.
Okwii who joined Ittihad in August 2019 on a two-year deal has been pictured training in Kampala with several Uganda premier league players to keep fit. The pacey forward has managed two goals and one assist in 14 league games in the Egyptian Premier League.
The swirling rumours linking him to Tanzanian giants Simba SC also can’t go unnoticed having had three stints with Msimbazi and in the process built a cult hero status.
Football256‘s efforts to reach Emmanuel Okwi for a comment were futile as all his known mobile numbers went unanswered by press time.
