Sserunkuma to report Armenian club to Fifa over Sh2m pay row

Ugandan forward Dan Sserunkuma has threatened to report his former employer to football’s world governing Fifa in a bid to resolve a pay dispute.

Sserunkuma, now with Kenyan Premier League side Bandari, claims – in a communique seen by Nairobi News – that he is owed $20,000 (Sh2,000,000) by Armenia club Ulysses – in accrued salary arrears stretching back four months.

The player featured for the club in a six month spell between July and November last year.

The former Gor Mahia and Simba SC (Tanzania) striker also claims the club failed to facilitate his return to Nairobi following the expiry of his contract, a situation that left him and his family in “financial and emotional distress”.

What’s more, the dreadlocked player also alleges the European club has back tracked on an earlier agreement to offset this arrears in full by January 1, 2016.

“I hereby demand full payment of my outstanding salary within the next seven days failure to which I shall refer this case to football governing body FIFA,” Sserunkuma’s letter to Ulysses which is dated 28 January 2016, reads in part.

Sserunkuma’s UK based manager Ken Joseph is included as a witness to the demand note to the Armenian club.
