“You can’t milk a dog and get results, you can teach it everything but it won’t give you milk,” are words of Uganda Revenue Authority Football Club (URA FC) coach Sam Ssimbwa.
Ssimbwa said the statement after witnessing his register a fifth straight barren draw in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League. URA drew with Tooro United at Mandela National Stadium Namboole on Tuesday.
A boring encounter that barely had any realistic goal scoring opportunity had URA coach Sam Ssimbwa jump to the defense of his team especially about the fact that they don’t concede.
“The way we play makes it hard for teams to break our defense,” Ssimbwa said in the post match interaction with journalists.
“If we can be that organized in attack and concentrate more in front of goal, then we would be winning matches,” he added.
URA have conceded once against Maroons in their one all draw but have also gone ahead and failed to kill off games when there was chance to do so.
“We try to do our best, but maybe our beat is not good enough. We got penalties against Police and Nyamityobora still we couldn’t use our chances.”
In Joachim Ojera, Robert Mukonghotya, Moses Seruyidde, Peter Lwasa and Vitalis Tabu URA have players who can win you games.
Shafik Kagimu’s creative prowess can also be banked on to deliver results, but some reason that is not happening.
This has forced Ssimbwa to concede and and wait for January to deal with the situation.
“That’s what my players can afford, today I have accepted and I have to deal with it until January then I recruit the players I believe can do the job,” he said before adding.
“I am not going to score goals, I am a coach, I coach players and we prepare for matches but we don’t score goals.”
URA are eighth on 13 points, with just two wins and seven draws in nine outings, they have scored just four goals and let in one.
