Uganda midfielder Yasser Mugerwa has revealed reason for terminating his contract with Ethiopian Premier League side Sehul Shire FC.
Mugerwa confirmed departure from Shire FC, a side he joined in February 2019.
In an exclusive interview with this website, Mugerwa said that he leaved the team after going months without pay.
He becomes the latest Uganda-player-abroad to leave his club over unpaid arrears including Savio Kabugo who also left Ethiopia’s Sebeta Kenema FC.
“I am terminating due to failure to pay five months,” Mugerwa told The-SportsNation. “They have been promising very week to pay us but in vain.”
“There were a lot of challenges I faced in terms of finances especially during this pandemic period; I have a number of people I take care of so without salary for five months, you can guess how life has been for them.”
Mugerwa says that the only problem he faced at the club was finances but the rest was “okay.”
He adds: “They wanted me to stay but I decided not to because I was so patient with them but all in vain.”
On his future, the attacking midfielder says that he is still weighing offers and will decide very soon.
Mugerwa played for Victoria University before joining URA FC in 2013. He left the Tax collectors in 2015 to join Orlando Pirates and has since featured for Ethiopia clubs Saint George, Fasil Kenema and Sehul Shire FC.
