KCCA FC Appeals Mugulusi Transfer To Villa

Following the unveiling of youngster Isma Mugulusi as a prerequisite to complete his unprecedented switch from Jinja based side Busoga United to SC Villa, KCCA FC have challenged the move citing to have secured his services as a free agent.

In a letter dated August 5th 2021, the Lugogo based side petitioned the FUFA Players Status Committee claiming to have signed an agreement with the player while adhering to stipulated FUFA guidelines relating to minors on 30th June 2020.

According to the letter, the two parties agreed on a contract length of 4.5 years and the contract was signed in presence of both player and parents on the same date as earlier stated.

This agreement was to effectively commence on January 1st 2021 but didn’t happen since as a requirement between the parents and KCCA, the player had to complete his UACE exams at Busoga SS before finalizing the move with the anticipated time being December 2020.

The Kasasiro boys also added that the contract was registered with FUFA as a requirement and have since been paying all the player’s requisites including sign-on fee and monthly allowances following the start of the year in January.

With the surge of the Covid-19 pandemic that saw an uncharacteristic closure of schools, the UACE exams weren’t done at the designated date in December but rather postponed to March 2021.

It was at this juncture that the club agreed with Mugulusi and his parents to forfeit the planned registration with the club in January and complete his exams at the new set date since his education was always supposed to take precedence.

It is however, these recent developments with the player joining the Jogoos that the hierarchy at Lugogo sought assistance from the FUFA Competitions Director. KCCA have since termed the reports as conflicting, unsubstantiated and unfounded reasons regarding the player’s registration status.

The club further indicated that their offer of compensation to Busoga United in order to complete the transfer was treated with contempt and they received nothing conclusive from the Busoga giants.

The aim from KCCA in lodging a formal complaint seems clear enough and the club attaching the parental consent and the Document number (1437) of the signed agreement between all three parties might provide them leverage in the matter.
