Uganda Premier League leaders KCCA’s head coach Morley Byekwaso has revealed why he joined SC Villa from the Kasasiro boys during his days as a footballer.

During an exclusive interview on NBS Sport, Byekwaso recalled an incident when he missed a penalty in a game his then club, KCCA was taking on SC Villa.

This made fans of KCCA to hate him so much because of the rivalry that existed between the two sides.

The following season he decided to make a switch from Lugogo to Nsambya.

One of the reasons that made him make this transfer was the number of U20/23 national team players that were at Villa.

He felt secure there because the bond he had with them was just great.
