Douglas Bamweyana recently threw in the towel at Sports Club Villa in his capacity as head coach, citing “wrong elements around the club” as one of the reasons for his departure.
The former Makerere University football lead tactician and ex-Express FC gaffer joined the Jogoo camp prior to the mid-season of StarTimes Uganda Premier League, taking over from Moses Basena who had failed to register a single win with the Blue Boys.
“There are so many issues and wrong elements around the club – who are keener on other battles,” Bamweyana told the Sports Nation.
“We have had to fight so many unnecessary battles even against insiders. It’s ridiculous how wrong things are,” he added.
The Nsambya based-club, who finished second last season under the charges of now Tooro United FC head coach Wasswa Bbosa have struggled this season on and off the pitch, bearing in mind that they failed to organize elections for club president at the end of Eng. Immanuel Ben Misagga’s first 4-year tenure at the helm of the club.
Despite appointing an interim committee led by former player Eng. William Nkemba that also had Franco Mugabe along with Hajji Omar Mandela, SC Villa still failed to hit the ground going.
The club’s failures at the management level especially after Misagga’s departure saw the club fail to hold onto some of their key players such as Joseph Nsubuga, Samson Kirya, Ambrose Kirya, Wasswa Yusuf and Samuel Kivumbi.
Villa take on Nyamityobora FC on Saturday, May 4 at Mandela National Stadium, Namboole in their final game of the season and will be under the command of Simon Mugerwa.
