Tooro United FC troubles look far from being sorted.
PML Daily has exclusively learnt that interim head coach Eric Ndifuna has also decided to lay down his tools.
Ndifuna replaced Wasswa Bbosa who left the club last November.
However, he too has given up due to poor management and unfavorable working conditions.
“I have given up on the club because everything that we are being told is a lie. ” Narrated Ndifuna when approached by PML Daily.
“I have met the management on several occasions but nothing is being executed.”
Ndifuna was in charge of the team on Tuesday as they failed to honour their fixture at home to Onduparaka FC.
The fixture was called off after Tooro United failed to raise at least 7 licensed players so as to start the game.
They are now expected to lose the game by forfeiture and docked six points, a situation that would leave them staring down the barrel of relegation.
It should be noted that up to 15 first-team players refused to travel for the above mentioned game due to 3 months’ unpaid wages.
“The management promised to pay the players by 3rd January 2020 but they did not so we could not play the game against Onduparaka because the players refused to play, continued Ndifuna.” Continued Ndifuna.
“I have further learnt that the payments will not have been effected even at the time of our next game so chances are high that we will also not be able to play.”
“I met the management on Thursday morning and after listening to them, i have decided that my time at the club is over.”
All this is happening with Tooro United working against the clock to beat a FUFA ultimatum that was set on Tuesday.”
The Federation gave them 48 hours to clarify on the matter of players not being paid and concerns about who it’s real owner is.
PML Daily has also established that Godfrey Galabuzi is still the owner of the club but is fronting Alice Namatovu as he tries to execute his role in the shadows.
Galabuzi is famous for his burst up with Wasswa Bbosa in a recorded phone call, late last year, before the tactician resigned his role as head coach.
Currently, Tooro United is in 13th spot with 14 points. If they are docked six points as expected, they will be bottom of the pile with 8 points, one behind Proline FC.
Their next fixture will be away to Kyetume FC next Wednesday and it remains to be seen whether they will honour it.
