Former Vipers defender, Geoffrey Wasswa’s (who is now a free agent) transfer to URA FC hit a dead end following controversies between the player’s self-proclaimed agents, the player and his agency
To wind back, Wasswa and some other personnel only identified as ‘his friends’ engaged the player in a deal that would see him join URA FC earlier this month.
All seemed to be going as planned with both parties, but at last the deal failed to materialize after the player’s management agency intervened leaving the deal in limbo.
A source revealed to The Touchline Sports that Wasswa went to URA offices on a Police Motor Vehicle on the afternoon of 6th July 2021 to put pen on paper in a deal worth 30M and 1.5M in salaries. But all this went south in the end.
What went south?
The player’s management agency has revealed to The Touchline Sports that the deal was wrong and unofficial.
“The people who tricked him into the deal were his friends who happened to claim the mandate of handling his businesses.”
“I can categorically tell you that the player has no local agent,” a source inside the player’s management agency revealed.
When contacted Geoffrey Wasswa did not either accept or deny that the deal happened, but he disclosed about his possible destination.
“As you know the people who negotiated with those teams were doing their jobs,” he disclosed.
“But my aim is to get a deal abroad and I would be gone by now but the only problem which is still keeping here is because some of the embassies were closed due to Covid19.”
Wasswa and his management expressed no interest of playing locally and a foreign deal may break through soon.
