The arrival of Micheal Nam Ouma was received by mixed feelings, it was a sigh of relief to those who didn’t believe in Javier Espinoza Martinez but many wondered why the latter was sacked.
Nam’s first outing was a 7-0 win over Econ in a practice match, striker Tito Okello registered a hat trick in 36 minutes.
The Kenyan import has had ample time with his team and he is expected to get the best out of them as they visit Bright Stars in Mwererwe on Saturday.
Much as he is yet to conduct press conference or even offer an interview to this club’s media department.
Nam has been working on improving the fitness of his players, the training sessions have had enough running and sprinting drills.
“He has been working on improving the general body fitness of the players because he thought they needed to be fit enough if they are to compete with the best,” a source told www.football-256.com.
But like any other new man on the job, Nam would badly want to win his first task but also maintain Vipers unbeaten start to the season.
Especially since his predecessor was fired after a barren draw with Tooro United at St Mary’s Stadium.
They lie second on the 16 ream log with 25 points, eight behind log leaders KCCA FC, Vipers have three games in hand.
Bright Stars are the surprise package of the 2018/2019 season, they may lie eighth on the log, but with 19 goals scored, only KCCA FC (33) and Police (22) have scored more.
With 13 conceded, Bright Stars on average concede a goal every match they have played this season.
The last ten meeting have four Vipers wins and seven draws, two of those wins have come at Mwererwe. The last two at the ground have ended in a barren draw.
With six goals, Nelson Ssenkatuka has scored the most for Bright Stars this season, Daniel Muzeyi Sserunkuma has the same for Vipers.
