The newly appointed Maroons head coach Charles Ayiekho Mbuzi, believes that his experience which lured Maroons to trust him, can save the team from its currently situation.
Maroons who sacked Douglas Bamweyana over devastating results, sit in red zone in 14th place on 24 points, with only five games to play.
The club have on Wednesday unveiled Ayiekho as the new coach.
“They have trusted me because they know that i have experience which can well save maroons from its current situation” Ayeko after his first training session at Luzira
“I have come in in a very hard time but if u are a good coach u dont need to go in a well performing team”
“I want to win three games and two draws in the remaining five matches, and i know when i get those 11 points i will be safe from being relegated and i believe i can do though its not going to be easy”
It should be brought to your attention that, the remaining five matches for Maroons, three of them are on away including fellow relegation fighters Police and one of the top seed Villa.
In others games, Maroons have to visit Kyetume FC before hosting URA FC and Mbarara City FC.
Despite all the above, the tactician couldn’t hide his happiness of joining the club after a full year in sabbatical.
“Thereis no ways i can express my happines for the responsibility given to me as maroons head coach,a team which every coach would wish to coach” Said Ayeko.
Ayeko has also reviled that many teams approached him during his sabbatical including his current former bosses Busoga United, but he couldn’t join them because of none of teams was ready to trust him as he would wanted in terms of carrying his own technical staff.
The league will be coming back in May, after CHAN tournament which starts next month.
