Uganda Premier League record 16-time winners SC Villa has unveiled their new coach Petros Koukouras in a brief function held at the club offices in industrial area on Monday morning.
Koukouras, a 35-year old Greek, has signed a three-year contract with the club.
Koukouras has a UEFA A license and is familiar with regional football having had a stint as an assistant coach of South Sudan.
“Our new coach comes with more than 10 years of experience in Youth and Senior football. The fans should know that this new technical team is very diligent, and are here to work,” said SC Villa CEO Shawn Mubiru.
“They fit the bill, they have come with a lot of competence and we want them to build a good philosophy for this club.”
He replaces Edward Kaziba who has been at the club for the last two seasons.
Koukouras joins a list of foreign based coaches like Geoff Hudson (United Kingdom), Micho (Serbia), Zivojnov Srdjan (Serbia) and Antonio Flores (Spain) to have coached the Jogoos.
The Greek said: “I am very happy to be here, this is the most succesful and that led me to accept the job.”
“I cant promise much, we will create a team that is hard working and take the team where it belongs. We have a lot of work ahead of us.”
Koukouras who has been in Uganda for few days, will meet the players tomorrow (Tuesday) as the club prepares for the new season.
Work is cut out for the new technical team as they seek to revive the lost glory for record league winners who also have nine Uganda Cups and three CECAFA Kagame Cup titles.
