Bamweyana wants Wakiso Giants to ‘challenge the status quo’

Wakiso Giants get their 2020/21 StarTimes Uganda Premier League campaign underway on Friday afternoon when they visit Police FC at the MTN Omondi Stadium.

Head coach Douglas Bamweyana will take his Purple Sharks to visit Abdallah Mubiru’s Cops as he gets his Wakiso tenure underway, with both sides hoping for better campaigns than last season.

Police FC finished three points off the relegation places, while Wakiso Giants had an ‘okay’ performance in their first top flight campaign.

Bamweyana recognises that the club needs to be challenging higher up the table given the level of investment by the club owners, and has hinted that the 2020/21 season is a very important one that can win the Purple Sharks significant laurels.

The former Maroons, SC Villa and Express coach is very ambitious to ‘challenge the status quo’ with Wakiso Giants, with their opening game on Friday coming a day after the club announced a UGX 200 million shirt sponsorship with Ward Wizard.

“I would like to add my voice to the milestone achieved by the club of having a new sponsor join the club, it is a sign that as a club we are going in the right direction,” Bamweyana said in his pre-match press conference.

“Tomorrow’s game comes with mixed feelings; it is excitement to begin with. Obviously, after a long time away from action we are looking forward to get onto the pitch and do what we love.”

“As far as our preparations are concerned, we are very happy with how the preparations have gone. On a personal note, I am happy with our preparations, and I am happy with the squad,” he added.

“We cannot wait to go out onto the pitch and do what we love, so we are looking forward to achieving what we feel is a challenge to the status quo.”  

“I stand from a privileged position because I feel we have the quality to compete with anybody in this league and therefore I don’t think we need years to get the team ready for a challenge,” he continued.

A challenge towards the top runners will be the main goal for the season, but there is plenty of work to do if they are to bridge the 10-point gap which separated them from URA FC who finished fifth last season.

And a great start is of great impetus to achieving that feat. But against Police, they come up against a club that collected six points over them last term.

The Cops picked up identical 2-1 victories over Wakiso Giants last season, but Bamweyana is confident that as a group they pick confidence from the good performance they have had in pre-season.

“We are fortunate to have prepared well for this season. We know that as a group we might have blips here and there throughout the season, but we know the league is a marathon,” he stated.

“So, we are confident our preparations and the quality in the side gives us a chance and puts us on the right track.”

“It’s true that as a club we didn’t do so well against Police last season, but I believe last season was last season. We are banking on how well we have prepared for this season and we are confident.”

“On a personal level, I don’t think I have such a bad record against Police, there have been a couple of draws though, but it is not about individuals, it’s about the group rather than the individuals,” he stated.

Bamweyana will be without new signing and former Police FC forward Pius Kaggwa who suffered a hamstring injury in a pre-season friendly last week. Alex Komaketch is another miss for the club.

Tom Masiko, Hakim Ssenkumba, Ayub Kisaliita and George William Katende meanwhile are long term absentees for the Purple Sharks.
