According to Abdallah Mubiru, Police FC cannot fight for players who are earmarked by rivals Vipers SC and KCCA FC.
The Venoms and KCCA have already swung into the transfer market with Vipers SC signing Disan Galiwango from Express FC.
Meanwhile, KCCA FC have unveiled three signings in Italian Stefano Mazengo Loro, striker Charles Lwanga and midfielder Ashraf Mugume.
Police are yet to sign a player but coach Mubiru insists they will assemble a decent squad without fighting with the two giants for new signings.
“We are not going to fight with Vipers, KCCA, and URA for top players in the market,” Abdallah Mubiru was quoted by Daily Monitor.
“But still we are going to assemble a decent side that will give us success soon,” he added.
Police FC struggling financially
Abdallah Mubiru, who doubles as the Uganda national team, has admitted the club is struggling financially.
They will therefore lose a number of key players this transfer window according to the soft-spoken tactician.
“I’m afraid to tell that even this season we are going to lose about five players.”
“These include Samson Kigozi, Arafat Galiwango, Pius Kagwa, and Denis Rukundo but we shall soldier on,” Mubiru continued.
Police FC will challenge for titles
Despite the struggles, Mubiru believes the Uganda Premier League (UPL) club can still challenge for trophies when the new season kicks-off.
“When I look back at the three years I have been in charge, we are not so far away from becoming a side that can win trophies.”
“Two seasons ago, we topped the table for a while after a strong start and many reckoned we were destined to win the title that year but a few challenges here and there and we lost it.
“Most times we outplay our opponents even in games that we lose, we want to change that.”
“We are one of the most attacking sides in the league and among the top scoring clubs,” he added.
It should be noted that Police FC finished 13th in the just-concluded season.
