The Chairman of KCCA FC, Julius Kabugo has said they will not be selling players as a move to strengthen the team.
Speaking to AfricanFootball.com, Kabugo said that since they are building a strong team in the continent, they need to be able to retain the playing staff and attract others as well.
Last weekend the Azam Uganda Premier League Champions qualified for the group stage of the CAF Total Confederations Cup after ejecting Egypt’s Al Masry 4-3 on penalties after the two teams had tied 1-1 over two legs.
“We are determined to become a strong force in African Football and this calls for us retaining the best players,” said Kabugo.
The chairman added that although it is always good to late players go professional, it is also best to get the timing right for the players and the club.
“We are going to concentrate on building our club so that it gets stronger both locally and internationally,” he added.
Already two KCCA FC players are reportedly wanted by an Egyptian team.
In March this year KCCA FC and Uganda Cranes defender Joseph Ochaya joined Zambian side Lusaka Dynamos FC in a deal worth over US $100 000.
