Egyptian side Al Ittihad Alexandria Club have terminated the employment contract of Uganda Cranes defender Gavin Kizito Mugweri.
Last year Mugweri joined the Egyptian outfit on a two year employment contract but injuries dettered his fight for a starting place and he was limited to only three appearances from the bench.
Kizito joined as a free agent following the expiration of his contract at SC Villa. It is however reported that Kizito has a move to Europe lined up.
On Friday the Egyptian side confirmed Kizito’s release on their official website
