The Uganda Cranes squad have resolved to come togetehr and pay off defender Murushid Juuko’s hefty fine of 30 million shillings that was slapped on him by FIFA in September.
The Cranes defender received a red card in the goalless draw against Mali after elbowing Malian striker Ibrahim Konate.
Juuko was served with a two game suspension which he served with the double win against Rwanda.
The defender’s fine will be paid off by FUFA, the technical team, players and Juuko himself.
