Veteran coach Leo Adraa has said he is not returning to coach South Sudan's national team and Club side Atlabara FC.

Speaking to URN in an interview on Wednesday Adraa said he has had enough time in South Sudan and is tired of their bad attitude of failing to pay coaches. "Atlabara FC last paid me in July last year and the South Sudan FA also have failed to pay me when I handled the national team for the 2017 Afcon qualifier against Mali last month," said Adraa.


Adraa who handled the national team Cranes before and guided the U-23 side (Kobs) to the semi finals of the 1999 All Africa Games in South Africa said he is only praying his money is paid. "I have done a good job with Atlabara FC and won all the trophies since I joined in 2013. I even left a week ago with the team still top of the League after the first round," explained Adraa.

The soft spoken coach who handled Scoul FC in the past in the Ugandan League said although he is now trying to get the South Sudan FA and Atlabara FC to pay his debts he is also looking for a team in Uganda or in the Cecafa region that can employ him.


Adraa said he will wait for the South Sudan FA and Atlabara FA to respond or he takes the matter to the world governing body FIFA.
