“Before the Duo left for trials in Switzerland and Spain respectively as a club, we made our proposal for any Club that would wish to acquire their services,” Ashaba revealed.

  1. This article is very miss leading as a journalist your Just’s bring in your own opinions on both players situations. It’s also actually a well known fact that Real Valladolid were not interested in enquiring Kizza. I do not live in Uganda but even then if KCCA FC were demanding that Fee which wouldn’t break the bank for real valladolid or FC Zurich these clubs would have paid. In regards to Okello situation just because his representatives say it went well and other journalist report on it like David Isabirye from Kawowo Sport’s doesn’t mean the trainers or coaching staff were. Some reports were also saying that a deal would be done in 48 hours when it was just a trail. Normally it’s usually a week. Also he was playing against youth and if he didn’t make that big of an impression why would FC Zurich pay that type of money for a player that’s not ready for first team football? Or maybe they just won’t impressed and they decided to pass and stick with their own youth players? Regardless of the reasons if he made that big of an impression they would have paid that amount of money, and professional clubs have so many players trailing with them they don’t have to realise details of trails. My instincts tells me they won’t impressed as its coming to two weeks. I think the best thing to do is KCCA FC and Okello’s repersentivites is to come out clean with the media since they were all hyping him up, otherwise this maybe bad public relations for Ugandan football which has made tremendous strides these past couple of years. And on the odd occasion if it is true shame on KCCA FC in regards to Okello situation as we all know the money that this club recieves from qualifying for major tournaments in Africa and what the players get is a fraction as you have many corrupt administrators keeping these hard earned players dollars. Ladies and gentlemen welcome to Uganda.
