Vipers SC is set to seek FUFA intervention over the transfer of youngster Andrew Kawooya to KCCA FC.
Kawooya, 17, was on Sunday unveiled as KCCA FC’s 11th new signing during their show on Sanyuka TV.
The Form Five student at St Mary’s SS played for Vipers JT in the FUFA Junior Team in the 2018/19 season.
“He is still our player,” Vipers director Haruna Kyobe has told The-SportsNation. “That is despising of the highest order. He is our kid and his parents have consented that. We have a minor contract with him.”
“We are going to petition FUFA over the matter. No club can let such a talent leave like that. Expect war.”
Kawooya, an attacking midfielder, joined St Mary’s SS from Dynamic SS and has also played for Lweza and Proline FC junior teams.
He has represented Uganda Under-17 at the 2018 CECAFA and 2019 AFCON tourneys.
Kawooya is the second signing KCCA FC has made from Vipers after Ashraf Mugume (whose contract had expired) in the ongoing window.
Tom Masiko’s move from KCCA to join Vipers also raised eyebrows as two rivals locked horns off the pitch.
