The FUFA Dispute Resolution chamber has today decided on the matter reported by Express FC over the transfer of their former captain Disan Galiwango to Vipers SC.
Galiwango who joined Vipers from Express FC in June left the Wankulukuku based side in dispute after reportedly pocketing monies amounting to Fifteen million Uganda shillings (Shs. 15m) that were meant to get the player to extend his contract at the Mukwano gw’abangi which had ended at the end of the 2020/21 season.
The agreement between the two parties was reportedly agreed to under an addendum which would later be the hook to a more football-related and binding document, a contract extension.
However, Galiwango made the move regardless, putting pen to paper on a four-year contract at Vipers SC, becoming their first signing in the ongoing transfer window.
In the decision, the FUFA Dispute Resolution chamber has ordered the former Water and Express FC left-back to refund the Shs. 15m and also pay a sum of ten million Uganda shillings (Shs. 10m) for breaching his contract with Express FC to join Vipers.
To this effect, the FUFA shall only hand Galiwango a license to play in the upcoming StarTimes UPL season when the total amount he has been ordered to clear to the club is fully paid to the Express FC’s club account.
