Goal understands that Nsibambi has now demanded to exit the club and did not show up at the training session on Monday

A storm is brewing at Uganda's KCCA FC, after it emerged that the club in collaboration with Uganda Football Association forced striker Derrick Nsibambi and left back Isaac Muleme, to play for Cranes instead, of the two making career moves to Egypt.

Reports reaching Goal indicate that Nsibambi has now demanded to exit the club and did not show up at the training session on Monday. 

Nsibambi is blaming the club and an unscrupulous Ugandan agent for misadvising him that he had a lot of offers on the table, when all along they just wanted to retain him for their Caf Champions League campaign.

On the other hand, Fufa is said to have threatened Isaac Muleme with non-issuance of an International Transfer Certificate (ITC) should he have failed to play for the national team at the Chan 2018 in Morocco.

The club has since issued a release letter for the player, after the matter gained prominence in the media. The two players were set for life changing moves to Egyptian side Al Assiouty Sports, and have missed out on lucrative salaries of up to USD 35,000.00 annually.

The Egyptian outfit was represented in negotiations by football expert Francis Gaitho, a well-respected operative in the football world.
