The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has dismissed talk that they are broke. “We are not broke like some people are suggesting.
That is why we have even run adverts for jobs because we have become bigger and have the capacity to pay,” said the FA’s spokesman Rogers Mulindwa.
When asked why they are then talking long to pay up the three months’ salary arrears for the national coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic, the FA official said they have had the problem of transition since a new executive came in place.
“We are trying to do a number of things during this transition period since we had election over a month ago. But we shall rectify the problem and have the coach paid up and also get other things moving,” said Mulindwa.
The FA spokesman said they are financially sound but always need other stakeholders to come in and help develop football.
The FA also refused to host Rwanda in an international friendly on Tuesday because of logistical problems. The Rwanda FA had requested for the international tie to be played in Kampala, but FUFA told them they were not ready.
