Over a week ago, Paidha Black Angels announced that they had sold their captain Cromwell Abang to Uganda Revenue Authority for an undisclosed fee.
This website has established that the club traded their most-prized asset for fourteen million shillings.
The transfer has triggered questions among the fans on the club’s objective especially when struggling to fight for survival in their first season in the topflight.
Their newly-appointed CEO Fred Akena, in a bid to calm the fans, has explained that the club’s hads were tied and had only two options; to sell the player or let him free at the end of the season.
“Offering Cromwell to URA FC fairly is not a bad deal as many may criticize,” he started his explanation revealing that “Cromwell was going to be declared a free agent in April this year since we had failed to tame him into a contract renewal because of huge offers being thrown unto him.”
“He expressed high interests in joining URA of which we entered and concluded negotiations with the club and we can now confirm he is not part of us anymore.”
The club has been linked to a number of replacements including former Amuka Bright Stars striker Dickens Okwir on loan from Vipers.
“Possible replacements have already been sighted and they will be unveiled to the fans. We urge our gallant supporters to remain calm as we return training at Chana play grounds in Paidha.”
The Zombo-based side is scheduled to unveil the new recruits on Wednesday morning in Paidha.
The team is currently sitting bottom of the table with only seven points after the first half of the season.
