Martin Kizza was expected to complete his move to Serbian club Spartak Subotica after he successfully passed his trials. The latest events indicate the move is on the verge of collapse.
A disappointed Kizza told this website that,
“I had trials last week with Spartak Subotica and everyone was impressed with my performances. The club decided to register me as their new player and the club was willing to give me number 7 as the jersey to don if everything is cleared.
“But negotiations between SC Villa and Spartak Subotica were unsuccessful and this may lead to the collapse of the deal”.
We understand that SC Villa is asking for huge sums of money that the Serbian club is not ready to pay, hopefully by next week a compromise will be reached to put all this to bed for the betterment of the player’s career.
It is also believed that the Ugandan club inserted special clauses in the player’s contract which ties him down to Villa. This was done without his consent or representatives.
“I had signed 2 years with SC Villa but the former CEO Ivan Kakembo changed my contract to 3 years and I was denied access to have a copy of my contract. CEO Ivan Kakembo shared a copy of 3 years with FUFA thus had nothing to do surprisingly am not only the victim in this situation, it was done to other players’ contracts ( names withheld).
Kizza is still optimistic however much it now Hungarian in balance, he passed the trials and the Serbian were left impressed.
“Though have not signed with Spartak Subotica, I am happy that i managed to pass their task though I feel let down by SC Villa failing to release me.
” I can only say am happy for playing my part during trials and am now waiting for the final negotiations with the two clubs.” A dejected Kiiza concluded.
Kizza started his football career at City tyres U14 team and Friends of football program, he also featured in the Airtel Kampala region U17 for two seasons where he emerged has the best player in Kampala region. He later joined the Austria soccer camp with the rest of the world youth players.
He has alo played for St Mary’s Nabweru during his schooling days, Kizza is also a Masaza graduate with Gomba. Before he made a move to KCCA ,and now to Villa .
