Uganda Cranes defender Joseph Ochaya has confirmed he will not be heading back to Asante Kotoko in Ghana. The former KCCA FC player told URN this morning shortly training with the Cranes at Lugogo, that he had called it quits after going through difficult times with the Ghanaian Champions, which frustrated his move to a Germany side.
He explained that after successful trials Greuther Furth FC in Germany last June, Asante Kotoko refused to let him go because they demanded for a lot of money and have since been frustrating him. Ochaya who featured for the Cranes in the recent second round 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (CHAN) said he is determined to stay away from Asante Kotoko because he is not ready to sign a new contract with them.

Cue out:..told them."//
Greuther Furth FC where relegated from the Germany Bundesliga side when they failed to impress in the 2013/2013 season. Ochaya joined Asante Kotoko in 2012 from KCCA FC for UGX75 million (US$30,000) as replacement for Baba Rahman, who left the Club for another Germany side Hoffenheim.
He had a decent campaign with Asante Kotoko in his two seasons, being influential in Kotoko’s league triumphs. He is the first Ugandan player to feature in the Ghanaian League. Ochaya says he is ready to return and play in Uganda if his is given the International Transfer Certificate (ITC).
