Uganda Cranes and Motherwell FC defender Bevis Mugabi will be out of action for four to six weeks after suffering a shoulder dislocation while in training.

Mugabi, who has been a mainstay in Motherwell’s central defense this season, suffered the injury on his return to training earlier this week.

“It is a blow to lose Bevis. He has played his way into the team and acquitted himself very well. He just seems to be unfortunate that when he gets a run of games, he suffers an injury.”

Motherwell FC manager Stephan Robinson said.

Mugabi was part of the Uganda Cranes camp which climaxed early this week in Dubai. 

He has played in eight games for Motherwell across all competitions, scoring one goal against Aberdeen and getting sent off once against Coleraine FC in the Europa League.

Mugabi was expected to be part of the Uganda Cranes squad that will take on South Sudan in the AFCON Qualifiers next month.
