UPL: Bamweyana Lays Blame On Villa’s Internal Wrangles

SC Villa have reportedly parted ways with head coach Douglas Bamweyana, sources can confirm.

The development comes after the club’s poor display that almost saw Villa drop down to lower division.

In a season with nothing to celebrate at Villa park, Bamweyana who replaced Moses Basena has explained that internal wrangles have contributed to woes the record winners are now facing.

“There are so many issues and wrong elements around the club – who are more keen on other battles,” Bamweyana exclusively told the SportsNation.

“We have had to fight so many unnecessary battles even against insiders. It’s ridiculous how wrong things are.”

Last season, SC Villa finished second, in a season which they all but looked the outright favourites.

However, the daparture of President Eng Ben Misagga which also sparked off the exit of all players but Ambrose Kirya, Samson Kirya, Joseph Nsubuga, Wasswa Yusuf and Samuel Kivumbi, led to total turmoil.

Consequently, an interim committe was set up to make sure sanity prevails, but all has been in vail.

Former SC Villa player and legend Eng. William Nkemba was appointed to chair the interim committee.

Franco Mugabe and Hajji Omar Mandela have been in staring role from behind the scenes.

The club appointed Basena but the coach could later leave without registering a single win.

The arrival of Bamweyana was greeted with mixed opinions by both the fans and some officials at the club, and his/Villa failure was all but inevitable.

Asked whether it would have been a different affair if there were right and peaceful structures in place, Bamweyana noted that he would have led the club to the promised land.

“Totally, the job would certainly have been a lot easier.”

Speaking about his future, the former Express FC tactician said:

“I still have a couple of meetings with my bosses to truly confirm my next action or set of actions but the environment is not conducive for anybody to succeed at the minute.”

Villa will now face Nyamityobora on Saturday, May 4 at Namboole, with Simon Mugerwa expected to be in charge for the last game of the season.
