Vipers Sports Club has today formally announced the signing of former Express FC captain Disan Galiwango.
Galiwango who has been at Express for two-years since joining the Wankulukuku based side from Water FC has signed with Vipers SC for a period that will keep him at the St. Mary’s until July 1st, 2024.V
Vipers SC announced this morning that they had captured the services of want away Express FC winger, today morning.
“His arrival brings an end to transfer speculations which have been linking him to various clubs within and outside the country before finally agreeing to terms with Vipers,” part of the statement on Vipers website read.
He becomes Vipers’ first signing under head coach Fred Kajoba who was recruited earlier this year.
But why did Galiwango ditch the Red Eagles for the Venoms?
Sources close to the player revealed to The Touchline Sports that Disan Galiwango’s contract at Express FC had expired.
Club Chairman Kiryowa Kiwanuka and the player reportedly agreed to a fee of Shs. 15M for an extension of two-years. Therefore, the two parties agreed to sign an addendum that would later serve as proof of agreement to a new contract.
However, after receiving the ‘sign on fee’ Galiwango instead opted for a move away from the Omukwano gw’abangi.
What could have gone wrong?
Galiwango was accompanied by then Express FC coach George Ssimwogerere who would bear witness to the deal.
Our sources reveal that after signing the addendum, George Ssimwogerere asked Disan Galiwango for a share of the money and this is believed to have prompted the player to leave.
The player started looking out for offers which would get him enough amounts to payback Kiryowa Kiwanuka’s Shs. 15M.
KCCA FC was the first to come out with Shs. 20M. However, the player decided not to take it as it was not enough to pay back Mr. Kiryowa Kiwanuka’s fee and have a substantive amount in balance.
The player needed a transfer fee of not less than Shs. 30M and The Touchline Sports understands that Vipers SC must have paid a fee beyond his asking amount to land his services.
