Lack of a Spanish embassy in Uganda has cost Cranes midfielder Geoffrey Kizito a dream move to La Liga side Malaga Fc. A

According to his agent Mr. Rayco Garcia, physician the player was supposed to process his documents before end of business on January 29th but they could not beat the deadline.

“Geoffrey Kizito has been training with Malaga CF for close to one week. His game has impressed the club but unfortunately he can’t join because of visa issues. We had a problem because Uganda lacks a Spanish Embassy. We tried to navigate around by using the French embassy but still he was not cleared on time,” Kizito’s agent Rayco Garcia said.

The former Vipers and Gormahia midfield dynamo has played several friendlies and training matches with Malaga including against Dynamo Kiev.

He will continue to play for his Vietnamese club Than Quang Nai until the June-August transfer period opens again in Europe.
