Busoga United FC players have threatened to petition FUFA over unpaid arrears.
The players, who spoke to The-SportsNation, say that the club has kept a deaf ear over their salaries even after FUFA released the Covid19 relief funds.
UPL Clubs received the funds from FUFA as Covid19 relief last week with each team getting Sh32m.
It is said that a section of players stormed the Jinja SS premises today but could only find the School Bursar who told them their concerns will be forwarded to the “busy” Club Chairperson Diana Nyago who is “covered up by politics these days”.
The players were paid in January and February, and half salaries in March but still demand months of December (2019), April, May, June, July and August.
It is said that some of the players were paid Sh180,000 each recently after David Bagoole paid the club to buy out his contract before leaving to join Vipers.
The angry players have said that they are going to write to the Federation seeking for bail out.
Recently, FUFA ordered SC Villa to pay Emmanuel Kalyowa his salaries after the player had gone 10 months without pay.
Players from Kyetume FC, Onduparaka FC and Maroons among other clubs have come out on various occasions to demand their arrears.
Last season, Busoga United finished fourth, their best placement since joining top flight.
The Uganda Premier League is tentatively set to kickoff on October 17, 2020.
