Bamweyana Bemoans League Break Ahead of February Restart

Wakiso Giants coach Douglas Bamweyana has expressed his discontent with the UPL secretariat and FUFA for breaking the league after Match-day five.

The Uganda Premier League will resume in February next year to create enough room for Uganda Cranes to prepare and take part in CHAN in Cameroon due January 16 to February 7, 2021.

Wakiso Giants had hoped to get things going in their next game having drawn all their five opening games.

“I personally feel the break is unwelcome,” Bamweyana told the Club media.

“First we needed the next game so fast to seek our first win – but also feel very unfortunate to only have drawn in games we feel we truly deserved to win. And all of them for this matter!”

The Purple Sharks have four players on the provisional squad CHAN – Captain Hassan Ssenyonjo, Viane Ssekajugo, Ashraf Mugume and Gerige Atendele.

On February 12, 2021, Wakiso will return to league action against Mbarara City FC at Kakyeka Stadium.

They opened the season with a goalless draw against Police before drawing against Kyetume, Vipers, Onduparaka and Bright Stars as well.

“I’m very disappointed with our returns so far! Our performances certainly deserved a lot more than what we have – but that’s football if your forwards are not as clinical as they should,” Bamweyana added.

They have scored five and conceded as many so far.

Bamweyana has also blamed his team’s defence for the reckless goals conceded.

He said: “It’s certainly the manner – which is clearly avoidable – that is the other concern. Lapses in concentration levels and refined speed of thought – as causes. But these are elements we can correct fast.”

The former SC Villa, Maroons and Express FC coach says that his team has many creative players but lack genuine finishers adding that his attackers should have done “more justice” to the chances they encountered in games.

Wakiso Giants Journey So Far:
Police (A) 0-0
Kyetume (H) 2-2
Vipers (H) 1-1
Onduparaka (A) 1-1
Bright Stars (H) 1-1
