Tony Mawejje reveals his football academy will be aimed at producing midfielders

Ex Cranes international Tony Mawejje has revealed what his academy will all be about.

It should be recalled that Mawejje who will be having two testimonial matches to officially bid farewell to playing competitive football said that he aims at starting a up football academy.

In an interview with local sports Publication Football 256, the ex Police FC midfielder gave an insight into what his academy will be about.

According to Mawejje, he was a midfielder and therefore the academy will specialize in producing quality midfielders.

Mawejje added that he’s not targeting starting up a football team. It’s simply an academy to nurture young talents.

“As far as I am concerned, the midfield is my area of expertise when it comes to football,” Mawejje told Footbal256 in an interview.

“I do not at any point intended to do a football team never so my specialisation in setting up a midfielders academy should not confuse people.”

“Stop worrying about how they will play because what I am targeting are the basics of a good midfielder, take them through all the phases.”

“Through that kind of process, I am optimistic that good midfielders are going to be produced and gradually they will start getting attached to different clubs.”

“It is going to be the first of its kind but I know it is also going to inspire a lot of other retired players to start specialising in developing talent depending on their positions,” he noted.

Furthermore, he reiterated how the academy although having a branch in Kampala will be situated in Masaka.

This is because its where he was born and raised and it’s also where his football journey got birthed.

“I was born and raised in Masaka and it is where my football story started from so the academy will be based there as well.”

“But we shall also have a branch in Kampala because for the largest part of my life I have stayed here.”

“We shall be picking kids from all over the country and take them to Masaka and later Kampala for further development,” Mawejje stated.

The ex midfield general announced his retirement from active football at the end of the 2021-22 season.

He will be having two testimonial matches on the 14th and 16th this month in Kampala and Masaka respectively.
