It takes humility to credit a fellow man for a job well done and, in this case, KCCA FC legend Jackson Mayanja who shared his mind about the round table meeting between FUFA and ex-players held on Friday at Ivys hotel, Wakaliga.
Led by Gibby Kalule, over 30 former players attended the meet that had notable faces like Hassan Mubiru, Simone Masaba, Paul Ssali, Geoffrey Massa, and Mayanja who says this was a welcome move and it’s for the better going forward.
“I think this is the beginning of helping the ex-players, it’s a good initiative and it’s not the first and last, this will help and I commend FUFA for a job well done,” the former Cranes assistant coach told FUFA media.
In the same vein URA FC coach Sam Ssimbwa termed this a good start for both the former players and FUFA.
“It’s been long overdue to meet with FUFA, if there’s honesty as the president has been saying then we’ve started a good journey because we are lacking many things,”
“In summary, if we are to progress, we need to organize our association first as FUFA also gives us a hand but only if there’s honesty in what the president is saying,” Ssimbwa lamented.
Many former internationals led by former Express FC skipper George Ssimwogerere have always been on record criticizing Moses Magogo’s administration especially asking for accountability for several FIFA funded projects.
