Allan Kateregga has reflected on life in Iraq after the attacking midfielder ended his stay with Erbil Sports Club recently.
The Cranes star is a free agent currently.
Following his spell in South Africa, the 26-year old joined Erbil in September last year in a surprising move.
“The football in Iraq is not so bad but has a very long way to go,” Kateregga told The-SportsNation.
The Dancing Rasta, as popularly known, didn’t renew his contract after a one-year expiry before announcing his departure last month.
Kateregga, formerly at AFC Leopards in the Kenyan Premier League, says that moving to Iraq was a desperate move.
“I didn’t renew with erbil because my going there was a completely desperate move and on top of that there were worrying situations of club negligence and non payments all through the COVID19 lockdown and a few months before,” he stated.
Kateregga is a crafty midfielder, gifted with vision, skill, quick feet, agility, flair on the ball, eye for the goal and ability to breakdown defences, came to the scene with Victoria University.
He has also featured for KCCA FC, Cape Town City and Maritzburg United (loan).
He was part of the Cranes team that played in 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Recently, he featured in Cranes camp in Dubai in preparation for the South Sudan double header but missed out on the final squad.
On what lies ahead, the midfielder reveals:
“I am still nursing an injury I got in Dubai with the Uganda Cranes and when I’m fit I will know where I am goin to play next.
“If a chance to return to the Uganda Premier League presents itself, I will be glad to take it.”
Since last year, Kateregga has been on radar of South African clubs and UPL sides including Wakiso Giants.
