Words from the camp

Addressing the unfortunate reports of a brawl between the Federation and players over fees, captain Denis Onyango confirmed the issues are resolved and all focus is on the game.

“These were resolved and we were back in training yesterday (Wednesday) and we’re looking at the game ahead of us. We’ve got a nation to fight for and we’ve got Ugandans back home that are looking up to us. We’re just focusing on our game at the moment and have forgotten our past with the federation,” Onyango said via to All Africa.
