19-year old winger Melvyn Lorenzen who plays in the German Bundesliga for Werder Bremen says he is ready to play for Uganda Cranes if Uganda coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic makes the call.
“I would not mind playing for Uganda if the offer came up,” he says. “But I have not really thought about it,” he told NMG in an interview
Born to a Ugandan father and German mother, the 19-year-old Melvyn Lorenzen left the country 15 years ago with his parents, settling in London before moving to Kiel in northern Germany.
He is eligible to play for three countries Uganda, Germany and England but is still undecided on which jersey to don.
Lorenzen has made one appearance this season coming on in the 90th minute of Bremen’s goalless home draw with Freiburg.
