Kampala Capital City Authority coach, Mike Mutebi has revealed why striker Geoffrey Sserunkuma left the club and joined Zambian side Buildcon.
Tom Masiko also left and joined Vipers SC, but the coach has since revealed why the duo jumped the ship.
Media reports in Uganda reveal that the coach said the two players rejected offers by KCCA to sign new contracts at Lugogo.
Speaking to Kawowo Sports, Mutebi said the club never intended to let the two players leave.

“Geoffrey (Sserunkuma) and Masiko rejected our offers,” said Mutebi.
“We offered each two year deals with a settlement fee of USD 2800 (Ugx. 10 million) and an improved salary which they rejected.
“When I told Masiko about the deal, he never got back to me and all I heard later was that he had signed with Vipers. For Sserunkuma, he hesitated to sign just because he didn’t want the club to get any fee in case a club wanted to him."
On the rest of departures, Mutebi confirmed the club had no interest in keeping either at Lugogo for the season ahead.
These include Ivan Ntege who has since moved to Botswana, Sulaimon Akinyemi (Buildcon, Zambia), Vincent Kayizzi, Lawrence Kasadha and Robert Ssentongo.
“The rest weren’t in our plans so we released them at no condition. Ntege, Vincente (Kayizzi), Akinyemi, Ssentongo and Kasadha were all released,” adds the manager.
