URA: Ssimbwa Dismisses Growing Speculations Over His Job

URA FC head coach Sam Simbwa has said that he is not under pressure and also dismissed ongoing speculations over his job.

The Revenue collectors have so far failed to live as advertised despite being the busiest team in transfer.

The side, that recently unveiled Rwenzori as their drinking partner, has managed to collect only four points from a possible 12.

Ssimbwa’s troops beat Maroons in the league opener, drew goalless against newcomers Kyetume and have lost to Wakiso Giants and Tooro United.

The stuttering start that saw the club fail to make home advantage count, has left Ssimbwa’s job on the line.

“I feel no pressure at all because am doing my job,” Simbwa stressed. “I have been through this situation before, I haven’t started coaching from Revenue and I didn’t ask for this job. I have a contract which protects me here and I graduated from German in 1996 and so u should also know that as well.”

“The league has just started and it’s a marathon, so we have lost the battle but the war still continues.”

In their 2-1 loss to Tooro United, URA squandered a lead at home while playing a coach-less side that had lost three straight games.

“It was very poor performance, we were sloppy in the first half. We defended poorly, we gave away two stupid goals. We paid for the price.”

The coach, just like against Kyetume FC, withdrew new signing Michael Birungi before secomd half.

“I realised that he is not ready,” Birungi on Ssimbwa. “However, there is still plenty of time, about two weeks, and much can be changed before we return to league action.”

URA FC has Bright Stars (A), BUL FC (H), Onduparaka (A), Mbarara (H), Villa (A) in October and there is a possibility that their postponed game against KCCA (A) may be fixed in the same month!
