Sserunkuma threatens to report Ullises to FIFA


Ugandan striker Dan Sserunkuma, formerly at Gor Mahia, has threatened to report the club to FIFA over unpaid dues for four months in 2015, amounting to US$20,000.

The striker joined the team in July 2015 but the club started experiencing financial difficulties that saw Sserunkuma go four months without pay and in a letter to the club, dated January 28, he has handed them a seven – day notice to pay up.

The striker, who featured for Gor Mahia for two and a half years up to the end of 2014 has also featured for Tanzanian giants Simba SC where he had a hard time before leaving for Ullises.

Here’s the letter to the club:
