Uganda Revenue Authority FC head coach Sam Ssimbwa is not quite a happy man especially as his side continue to blow cold in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.
Following their goalless draw against struggling Bright stars, yesterday at the Betway Muteesa II Stadium, Wankulukuku, the former Cranes winger was utterly disappointed with what he had just seen from his charges.
Asked if he still had time at the club to help turn around the club’s performances, and whether his superiors are not getting sceptical about the team’s recent slump, the outspoken tactician replied
“No one should be asking me for results, I know this is a result-oriented business and I acknowledge that my team should be doing better, but not under such circumstances,” Ssimbwa told the media.
“When everything is done for you as a coach, someone keeps signing players for you, and then they expect you to be getting results, you can only do as much.” He continued.
Ssimbwa’s side were favourites to pick up all three points from the match, against a side that had the worst form of the division and had failed to keep a clean sheet in the four games they have played so far.
But the tax collectors did not create enough trouble for their hosts especially in attack, despite starting with Cromwell Rwothomio, Brian Majweega and Joachim Ojera upfront.
Saidi Kyeyune’s long-range efforts were twice brilliantly denied by Bright stars goalkeeper Godwin Buule, but that was all Ssimbwa’s game could afford.
The draw further compels URA’s struggles, as they pick up their second draw in the last four league games, and lost as many. Their only win so far came on the opening weekend over Maroons.
URA are currently 11th on the 16-team log, with five points from five games. A home game against table-topping BUL FC is next on the cards at the Mandela National Stadium, Namboole on Saturday 05th, October.
