Kasingye Blames ‘Selfish Individuals’ For Police FC’s Poor Run

Police FC Chairman says the management at the club is the reason behind the team’s poor start into the new Uganda Premier League season.

This he said after a club meeting held on Wednesday aimed at finding ways of ending uncertainties at the club.

In this new season, Police have had a worst start, losing six of their opening nine games in the season and have only managed to pick three points in the process.

While speaking to the press-men after the meeting, Kasingye was quick to mention the cause of the poor run.

“We have had poor start into this new season but it’s not about the players am telling you the truth, it’s been our problem as the management,” Kasingye stated.

“I’m the chairman of the board and I can tell you the problem has been coming from the Management led by the CEO that is why he is not here, so that has been the main problem.”

Earlier this week, this website had an exclusive interview with an undisclosed Police FC player, who cried foul due to un paid arrears.

And for Kasingye, he says the main challenge he been the presence of some greedy individuals at the club.

“For me in office, I always know that I have paid the players, but reaching on ground it’s not the case. So the problem has been with some greedy individuals.”

He added: “Over the years, most clubs have suffered financially and we are not different from such clubs. But we shall try and try manage that in time to come.”

The club parted ways with CEO Fahad Lumu with reports of misuse of players salaries and other fees meant to buy club kits.

This week on Tuesday, the club confimed reknown Football agent and Businessman Luzzi Abraham as the new marketing and executive officer, something many regarded as a way of reviving the club.

About Luzi’s appointment Kasingye said: “I didn’t hire Luzzi to revamp the club, whatever he has started, he is a great guy but I don’t want anybody to say management and board do not have new ideas. The truth is as a club we had not put emphasis on some important issues and it’s high time we get them on track.”

After nine games played, Police are currently sitted rock bottom with just three or points summing up their poor start into this new season.

Up next for Police FC will be the Lugogo derby as they face current leaders KCCA FC at the Omondi Stadium Lugogo on Friday.
