Former Partizan Belgrade defender Nestroy Kizito has made shock return to the national team, Uganda Cranes, barely a month after quitting.
The 29-year-old quit last month citing need to allow youngsters time to get into the fold and for him to concentrate on club football.
But at a news conference in Kampala called by the Ugandan Football Federation FUFA to debrief the country on the 3-1 defeat to Congo Brazzaville in the 2013 Nations Cup qualification, the federation's publicist Rogers Mulindwa announced the defender’s U-turn.
-We’ve been talking to him and he told us that he had rushed his decision (to retire), Mulindwa said in a press conference attennded by the New Vision.
-He told us that he was being disturbed by issues to do with his club but now that he is close to getting a new club, he has reconsidered and decided to return to the Cranes.
Kizito, 29, was the first to announce his retirement early February.
Cranes captain Ibrahim Sekagya and controversial striker David Obua also called in their international careers, just after Kizito's announcement.
