Ugandan international Murushid Juuko says he will not be returning to Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca until they have settled their outstanding debt to him.
The 26-year-old was signed by Wydad from Simba SC in mid-2019 but he quickly fell out with the North African team, leading to speculation that he will be signed by Ugandan side Vipers SC.
“I can’t comment on the Vipers move now,” Juuko told the Daily Monitor.
“I still have my contract with Casablanca but I can only return to Morocco when they pay me all the money they owe me. If that is not the case, I will still stay in Uganda.”
Vipers will represent Uganda in the 2020-21 CAF Champions League and coach Fred Kajoba has made clear his admiration for Juuko.
“No coach in Uganda wouldn’t want to have Murushid in his team. Even if you asked Mike Mutebi (KCCA manager), he would run for him,” Kajoba is quoted by Goal.
“We are going for continental football and in any case, we face a big side, say from North Africa, we can rely on Juuko for experience and command,” he added.
“We may have many defenders at the moment [Geoffrey Wasswa, Bashir Asiku, Halid Lwaliwa, Ahmed Amayo, Ibrahim Tembo, Jacob Okao, Livingstone Mulondo and Rashid Toha] but if we get Juuko some will have to go on loan.”
