Fufa confirms payments to Uganda Cranes players

The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (Fufa) has confirmed payments to the players.

The payments who did duty for the Cranes for a period of 33 months, from July 2018 to March 2021.

Players payments have been a source of conflict between the federation and Uganda internationals, but now it has been sorted.

In a document from FUFA, the highest-paid player was former Cranes skipper and Mamelodi Sundowns custodian Denis Onyango.

He received Ush.320,617,500 while Mike Mutyaba pocketed the lowest amount, Ush.12,950,000.

“Payments made to national senior team players,” Fufa communicated through their social media platforms. 

“These payments are direct income by players and do not include any other expenses incurred on the team over the period.”

“Please note that more players are paid by Fufa than listed here, these same players have earned from other Fufa sources but this is from the Government.”

The East African heavyweights are now focusing on the 2022 World Cup.

They are pooled with rivals Kenya, Mali, and Rwanda in qualifying.

The first game will be against the Harambee Stars on June 5 or 6.

They will play without Hassan Wasswa, Onyango, and Micheal Azira who announced their retirement from international duty.
