SC Villa coach Jackson Magera reveals Villa’s problems after the UPL first round

December 29, 2022

With the first round of the Uganda Premier League having come to an end and the league set to resume in February, SC Villa coach Jackson Magera has come out to give his verdict.

Magera said that he wants the club to finish in a respected position by the end of the season.

He however cited a number of problems that have disrupted their season.

Magera pointed out the the stadium which always turns into a wetland whenever it rains.

It should be recalled that Villa hosts their games from the Muteesa II stadium in Wankulukuku which they share with Express.

He also pointed out the recent FUFA decision in which they got two points and 2 goals deducted off them because of fans hooliganism.

Magera says that this affected them because the points got deducted off a game they won for a game they lost.

“We want to push the club to a position where we think the club deserves to be. It has been a first mixed round of games for far. Some of the challenges we have faced is the water logged stadium which becomes a menace whenever it rains. Plus the points that were deducted from us affected the club. This is because the points were taken off a game we won because of what happened in a game we lost,” said Magera.

Magera also added that they are now going to start preparing for the second round of the league after the festive season.

The Jogoos have had quite a brilliant season compared to the previous years.

Currently, they sit in the 5th position after 14 games.

They have won 8 games, drawn 2, lost 4 and have 24 points 5 behind league leaders KCCA.

This can be attributed to coach Jackson Magera who replaced Greek Petros Koukouras on an interim basis.

Villa will be back in action on 11th February 2023 with a visit to Gaddafi.
