Uganda Cranes striker Joel Madondo is set to return home following a failed stint so far at Moroccan side Wydad Casablanca.

This came after Madondo was denied access to Wydad Casablanca’s training ground which prompted him to come up with a decision of coming back home.

“The club is already back in training because they are preparing for the resumption of the league and Caf Champions League,” Joel Madondo was quoted by Kawowo Sports.

“But I went there the other day and I was denied access to the training ground.”

“I went back to training and coach Diego Megias told me to talk to the head coach Juna Carlos Garrido who is currently in Spain.”

“When I called him, he told me I should first settle my issues with the club.”

“I decided to do personal training at home and I also go to road work.”

“There is a small pitch next to the airport where Nigerians train, I joined them but they train just two days a week,” he added.

Wydad and Joel Madondo on bitter terms

Joel Madondo has not had a smooth time with the Moroccan club since he joined them at the beginning of this year.

A few weeks ago, he explained how he had neither received his salaries nor allowances since March while staying in a rented apartment.

The club also taken away his passport and he revealed that he is ready to fly home as soon as possible after it was returned to him.

“I got my passport back and I’m only waiting for the airport to open. All I want now is to return home and have some peace.”

“I have been through a lot since I arrived here.”

“For now, I don’t care how people will judge me. They always blame us without hearing our story.”

“But I don’t think anyone would want to go through what I have experienced,” he added.

Joel Madondo joined from Busoga United following good performances at the Jinja-based club.
