Kampala Capital City Authority have announced that the Shs540m ($150 000) of the Shs1.9bn (US$550, 000) gained after reaching the CAF Champions League group stages will be shared by the players and the technical team.
The Ugandan giants have made their first entry into the continental competition’s group stage after beating Saint George of Ethiopia last weekend.
KCCA management, led by the Executive Director Jennifer Musisi Ssemakula, unanimously agreed to reward the players.
KCCA players earned Shs400,000 as a match bonus after ejecting Madagascan side CNaPS in the preliminary round.
“I felt very emotional throughout the weekend and I wanted to come to thank you for making me, Uganda and KCCA proud,” Ssemakula is quoted by the Daily Monitor.
“Saturday’s win vindicated our initial big expenditure, administration changes. You should know not seat on your laurels but go on and make it a routine.”
Ssekamkula also applauded the coach Mike Mutebi for having a stubborn, strict character and being a go getter which makes him a ‘super coach’.
Mutebi revealed that after a long time of hard work and strategizing, it was a moment for them to harvest.
“We thank God that the things we planned to achieve in five years have come so early,” added the coach.
“You (KCCA management) have given me a platform to perform what I have always wanted to do which wasn’t possible in 1997 or 2003.
“With the skill God gave me I want to change Ugandan football.”
