16-time league record champions Sports Club Villa have stepped up their quest for new head coach prior to the 2018/2019 season.
The Jogoos have now set their sights on Jackson Mayanja to become their new lead tactician following the departure of Wasswa Bbosa, who has since joined Uganda Premier League side Soana Football Club.
“Nothing has been agreed as yet. But I can confirm talks are in advanced stages to have him as our new coach,” SC Villa president Ben Immanuel Misagga said.
Should the deal come to pass, Jackson Mayanja could become the seventh coach to take on Villa’s mantel during Misagga’s reign as president in the last four years.
Those that have served before include; Steven Bogere, Wasswa Bbosa, Ibrahim Kirya, Antonio Flores, Deo Sserwadda and Shafik Bisaso.
