StarTimes Uganda Premier recorder champions SC Villa seem to have learnt their lesson in the first round of the 2018/2019 season.
The Nsambya based side who struggled for form last year are set to sign versatile defender Asuman Alishe and left back John Adriko ahead of the second round kickoff.
www.football-256 reliably understands that Alishe who was at Mbarara City in the first round helping them finish 3rd coincidentally walked out on the team after he was stripped of the club captaincy.
This was a few days ago following a disagreement with club coach Livingston Mbabazi, Alishe had decline to take part in most of the club’s warm-up friendlies.
Douglas Bamweyana’s team have lost up to five players Savio Kabugo joined Congolese side AS Vita others like Shafik Bakaki, Joseph Ssemujju and goalkeeper Brian “Zigi” Bwete went AWOL hence the team’s struggles.
The acquisition of Alishe is expected to help stop the leak in defense and also add more experience as Villa hope to make a top 10 finish in the league.
John Adriko currently playing for FUFA Big League side Kitara FC, he was at Villa last season and a mainstay in the team’s defense.
Villa won just two games of the first round, and were knocked out of the Stanbic Uganda Cup round of 32, they lost 2-0 to Nkambi Coffee.
