NSAMBYA – News reaching PML Daily suggests that SC Villa have fired head coach Douglas Bamweyana.
This comes just two days after the record league champions lost 2-1 at home to Tooro United.
The loss left Villa 13th on the standings, five points ahead of Ndejje who are yet to play their Match-Day 29 fixture at home to Onduparaka FC.
In the aftermath of Wednesday’s loss, fans called for Bamweyana’s head, a cry that was answered immediately.
“There was a meeting between the players and Villa’s interim Chairman William Nkemba on Wednesday, revealed a source at Villa Park.
“In the meeting, the players advised that Bamweyana should be relieved of his duties, something that Nkemba executed.
Bamweyana was only appointed last November but has failed to lift SC Villa to the desired standards.
He has been in charge of 21 games, winning only six of them and has seen Villa struggle to fend off relegation fears up until he has left.
Before him, Villa was under the guidance of Moses Basena who also suffered the same fate after failing to inspire the 16 time League champions.
Assistant Simon Mugerwa conducted Wednesday’s training session and is expected to take charge of the final match against Nyamityobora.
Villa requires only a single victory to stay up but even a draw will keep them up provided Ndejje does not score up to 16 goals in their last two games.
