Rayon demand Rwf 3m from Police in the wake of Sina deal
Defending champions Rayon Sports is demanding Rwf. 3 million from Police Fc after they signed striker Jerome, claiming the DR Congo native is still their player.
Sina who left defending champions Rayon Sports two years ago on in-disciplinary grounds, has been offered a two-year professional deal at Police Fc after a stint with FC Lupopo in DR Congo.
The Blues club secretary general olivier Gakwaya said, “Sina is still our player and we believe Police should first settle the issues between the club and player before giving him any bidding document,”
“He left before winding up his contract; he left with six months left on his contract. We want the compensation for that which is Rwf. 3 million before we can allow him to play for Police because our petition is already known with Ferwafa,”
However, Sina believes he has nothing to do with Rayon Sports. “I have no legal contract with Rayon Sports. I don’t owe them anything, am free to play for Police now,”
The arrival of Sina is a big boost for coach Sam Ssimbwa who is gunning to win the Turbo King Football League. So far his side has scored the most goals in 14 matches played with lead strikers Peter Kagabo, Jacques Tuyisenge and Kipson Atuheire netting twenty nine goals in total.
Sina played for Rayon Sports for two seasons but went to feature for FC Lupopo without the club’s permission, a feat which saw him being banned.
He dumped Rayon Sports and went AWOL (Absent without official leave) mid last season to feature in DR Congolese league after being slapped with a one-month ban on grounds of in-disciplinary grounds.
At the start of the 2013/14 Turbo King Football league season, Sina resurfaced claiming that his contract with Rayon Sports had expired and was on verge of joining AS Muhanga as a free agent.
However, Rayon Sports held onto him claiming that the player still has unfinished business with the Nyanza-based club.
Besides Sina, the Cops side has also been boosted with the recent signing of Sec Academy goalie Steven Ntalibi, former Marines and Etincelles midfielder Moussa Habimana and Julius Mucyaba from Express of Uganda, all on two year-deals.
Police is ranked fourth on the Turbo King Football League ladder with 27 points, six points behind leaders APR, five behind second placed Rayon Sports.
