Following Express FC's shocking 3-nil defeat by new super-league entrants, Boroboro, Express coach Kefa Kisala has threatened to resign from office. Kisala says his team's efforts have been failed by continuous wrangling between the team's executives and fans. He says the players are victims of the wrangles, often going without training equipment, allowances and transport. 25 Express FC players signed contracts to play before the start of the 2007 season, but only 13 were available for the Boroboro game. The Cameroonian duo of Eric Ngako and Emma Zitolo refused to play until they are paid. Hamza Ssemwogere, Dennis Kyeyune and Kassim Kasawuli missed the match because they are sitting for exams at Makerere University, while James Magala, Hassan Mubiru, Tony Odur, Edward Ssali and Henry Kakoza are shopping for professional engagements abroad. Kisala who led the Red Eagles to a Kakungulu Cup triumph last season says he is tired of working under such conditions. He claims his players' morale is critically low and warns that if nothing is done soon, he will resign. National Players Association delegate, Steven Kiggundu, who also doubles as goalkeepers' coach at Wankulukuku reveals that Express players are intending to write to FUFA requesting to be let released during the mid-season transfers.
