Nyamityobora FC club has announced Asaph Mwebaze as its new coach after head coach James Odoch threw in the towel following a 6-1 loss to KCCA FC last weekend.
The Banyakare club based in western Uganda that was promoted to the elite league this season has faced tough times to escape the relegation zone as it lies second last at the long table with only four points in nine games.
Nyamityobora club President, Ben Missaga who unveiled coach Mwebaze and other three players from Cameroon to the fans at Nyamityobora training ground on Tuesday, is confident that Mwebaze will bring changes to the club in a bid to ensure that they survive relegation battle.
“We have brought in a new coach to stabilize the club so that we are highly competitive and we become a winning team. We also needed a coach who is going to structure the club as a manager and that is why we brought Mwebaze,” Missaga told reporters.
The new coach on his part said he has started the process of revamping team to compete favorably with other teams in the Uganda Premier league.
Asaph Mwebaze who left Onduparaka in late November was seen at the bench of Nyamityobora FC as SC Villa acquired its first league win over the weekend.
He believes he has a very big task ahead to transform the club into a winning team which has managed only one win in 9 games.
“There is a lot that we can change for this football club because a football club came to the league unprepared for the challenge”.
“So, managing the players, giving them a professional outlook to how the game is supposed to be played, even the way they are supposed to be managing themselves is not easy,” explained Mwebaze.
Mwebaze further believes the club needs restructuring so as to meet the standards of a premier league clubs.
“Of course this club raised very fast from the lower ranks into the premier league so they were not taken through what it takes to be a premier league side”.
