KCCA FC tactician Morley Byekwaso says he always expected to become a head coach at some point in his career.
Byekwaso was appointed the head coach of KCCA on Monday replacing Mike Mutebi to who he was an assistant since 2016.
He made the remarks after KCCA’s 3-0 win against Bul FC in a match played Friday evening at the Philip Omondi stadium.
Filbert Obenchan, Charles Lwanga and substitute Julius Poloto scored for the Kasasiro Boys to hand Byekwaso his first victory at the helm.
The victory saw KCCA climb back to 4th spot with 30 points from 16 games.
Speaking after the game, Byekwaso said he has always prepared for the head coaching role.
“It is a bit hard but am used to this. I started preparing myself for this in 2000 during my early coaching career. Said Byekwaso.
“Last month I was away in Mauritania with the U20 but all those were preparations.
“If you are acting as an assistant coach, definitely one day expect to be a head coach. So I thank God for the opportunity given to me and I hope to create more things in future to see that our team wins because today I was not fully convinced.
“Bul looked well and more fit than us but sometimes football is luck and we managed to use our chance and won.”
KCCA struggled to create chances on the day although they dominated both halves.
Byakwaso says there are many ways to win games aside from being putting on a good display.
“My observation is that the game is not won through display only. There are very many other factors on how you can win the game. If you are training, you have to create other ways of scoring and we have been practicing set pieces and we knew in case we get them, which suitable players we would go for them and I thank my players for the win and also thank coach Arthur for the great job done in today’s game.
“We played like at 25 percentage and we hope to use this match to raise and improve on the levels of the team.”
Despite winning today’s game ,the coach still believes he has a lot to do in the team.
“We won the game but this was not my expectations. Bul was better than us in both being physical and in terms of fitness.
“They would have hurt us if they had used their chances in the first half so we need to go back and iron out some few issues and come back in a good shape to play Nyamitobora next Wednesday in the Uganda cup.”
Friday’s win was KCCA’s ninth of the season and sixth at home.
