Uganda Cranes forward Joel Madondo finally returned home from Morocco after mutually partying ways with Wydad Casablanca recently.
The pacey forward returned on Saturday 25th aboard the Uganda Airlines on a flight that had other Ugandans including celebrated music icon Eddy Kenzo and immediately went into the mandatory self isolation quarantine in one of the hotels in Kampala where he will stay for a fortnight.
Over the past months, Madondo was in the spotlight claiming uncleared arrears since joining in January a scenario that made rounds all over different tabloids across Africa which inevitably made the club intervene into the matter.
This website is reliably informed that since then, the club wired some money in form of arrears onto the players account before agreeing on another compensation fee for terminating his four year contract.
Further reasons for the termination of Madondo’s contract arised from Spanish coach Juan Carlos Garido who from day one after replacing former Cranes gaffer Sebastien Desabre showed the player unwillingness to use him until he officially told him physically when the club resumed training ahead of the restart of the Botola Pro-league.
He joined Wydad Casablanca in January this year from Uganda Premier League side Busoga United on a four-year contract and featured in two league games coming in as a 71st minute substitute for El-Moutaraji on his debut in which they lost 0-1 at home to Diffa El-Jadida in February.
He then got his first start days later against Youssoufia Berrechid in their 3-2 loss on the road under Sebastien Desabre before paving way for Ivorian 26 year old forward Gbagbo Magby.
With the summer window open, a number of giant clubs are expected to join the race to capture the player’s signature with offers outside also in the picture.
