After Tuesday’s gigantic clash between SC Villa and Vipers in the Uganda Cup semi finals, many have pointed out issues that may have decided the game in favour of the him side.
Some have gone on to point fingers at referee Emma Kiwewa who they claim had a bad game interms of his officiation.
SC Villa head coach Wasswa Bbosa is one of those faulting the young official for his (Bbosa) side’s loss.
“I am disappointed that our club was denied access to the stadium up on arrival, said Bbosa.
“We arrived at 2pm but only accessed the stadium at 03:30.
“We did not get enough warm up time, something that affected us physically.
About the whole game, the former Express FC tactician had this to say.
“During the game proper, we created several chances but failed to convert them.
“Concerning the goal we conceded, it is the referee who scored against us.
Bbosa also came out and pointed to the injuries that his team suffered going into the game, as another reason that may have seen them lose.
“We had a lot of injuries prior to the game which disrupted our preparations.
About my status at the club, I am a free agent now and don’t know where i will be working next season.
His counter part, Miguel da Costa who is on course for a first ever league and cup double expressed his thanks to the Vipers’ fraternity.
First of all, I thank the management of Vipers Sports Club, players, technical team and fans, said the Portuguese.
“In the game, we were better for the first twenty minutes and then they (SC Villa) started growing into the game.
“The game was divided into two halves.
“We had a lot of possession in the first half but we played in our own half.
“SC Villa Jogoo was better than us in the second half.
About the final against KCCA FC, da Costa had this to say.
“Ahead of the final with KCCA, the opponent is completely different.
“We win the final, we do not play the final.
“We have played twice with KCCA this season and we know how to handle them.
Vipers will take on KCCA this Saturday at the Emokori Playground in Bukedi district.
The Venoms are chasing a first ever league and cup double having won this past season’s Azam Uganda Premier League.
Their opponents KCCA achieved a similar fate last season when they win both titles, requiring a 2-0 victory over Piadha Black Angles in the final of the Uganda Cup.
