Busoga United FC players are “unhappy” with the club management after going months without pay.
Some of the senior players at the club have constantly revealed their discontents to the club and are now plotting for a serious revolt.
“We have spent around six months without pay, the landlords are on our backs and are going to throw us out,” one of the players told this website.
“Our families are starving, and the club has given the issue a deaf ear. They have frustrated us completely. We cannot reach to the Madam (Hope Diana Nyago) as she is so much absorbed into politics.”
Busoga United players are the latest to come out over unpaid salaries after Maroons, Onduparaka and Villa among others.
The clubs recently wrote to Uganda Premier League seeking for a financial bail out.
FUFA recently released UPL prize money, but Busoga United players claim that the club officials have been “telling us lies.”
Busoga United finished a club high fourth last season and were given Sh7M in prize money.
“They said that FUFA deposited money on a wrong account which belongs to Kirinya Jinja SS not Busoga United FC,” another senior player said.
“At least they would have given us that Sh7M and we share amongst ourselves for starters. The club has already breached our contracts! We understand that its difficult situation, but communicating is always key.”
Busoga United head of communications Paul Kulumba and New CEO Andrew Ndyabahika were not ready for a comment.
The UPL Clubs are hoping that FUFA will bail them out after FIFA approving the Covid19 relief fund to member associations.
