Uganda Cranes striker Brian Umony has confirmed that he has parted ways with Tanzanian Premier League champions Azam FC.
 
Umony told URN this afternoon after training with the national team at KCCA FC’s Omondi Stadium, Lugogo that he left the Ice Cream makers Azam FC. He attributed his short spell with Azam FC to injury troubles he has had since joining the team in January last year.
 
He explained that the club decided it was better to part ways because he had been injured for a long time. Umony however said he was happy that they compensated the reaming six months on the contract.

Cue out:..and keep fit.”//
 
The player did not rule out a possibility of returning to play for Ugandan champions for a short spell like he did when he returned from Vietnam in 2012. David Tamale, the KCCA FC secretary also confirmed that talks are already ongoing and anything could happen before the end of the month.
 
Umony was signed by Azam FC after helping Uganda win the 2012 Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup and was voted best player. He signed for KCCA FC in 2007 and in his first season he finished the league as joint top scorer with 15 goals to help KCC FC claim their first league title in 11 years.
 
After undergoing a week-long trial, Umony signed a two-year deal with South African Premier Soccer League club SuperSport United in late June 2009. On 8 July 2010, he was released by SuperSport United and moved to University of Pretoria on a permanent transfer.
 
In February 2011, having trained with the club through its pre-season, Umony signed a one-year loan deal with Portland Timbers (US) for their debut year in Major League before switching to Vietnamese side Becamex Binh Duong the following year. He returned to KCCA FC before signing for Azam FC.
