The Ugandan pair of Khalid Aucho and Geofrey Massa are still at Baroka FC

Absa Premiership side Baroka FC CEO Morgan Mammila has told KickOff.com that Uganda internationals Khalid Aucho and Geofrey Massa are still with the team.

Reports suggested the pair were on their way out of the club after failing to impress in the first half of the season.

But Mammila says the players remain part of the squad, but said it would be up to the technical team as to whether they play.

“Aucho and Massa are both still on our books,” Mammila said. "Aucho is a hard worker, but football is like that, if coaches don't see them as good players, us as management, there's nothing we can do.

“It's just that sometimes foreign players takes time, at least a year, to adapt to a new environment. Each and every player is like that.

“Even Keagan Dolly was like that when he returned to Sundowns, the first season he was not that good, but the second he started to blossom.  

“It's the coaches who decide [whether a player plays] and as a CEO I will support the coach whether they stay or go."
