It is make or break period for FUFA Super League (FSL) 2011-12 Champions Express FC as they fight hard to save their season from demise, and with their next assignment being a game against defending champions Kampala City Capital Authority, the club’s assistant head coach Wasswa Bbosa has called on the team’s fans to show up in numbers to cheer them on.
The two teams face off on Friday 1 November and Bbosa holds that with the fans’ backing they can pull a result against KCCA, who are currently second while Express is 13th on the 16-team log.
The Red Eales are however embroiled in financial constraints with their staff threatening to abort the upcoming league games and trains if their four months wages are not paid.
Speaking to RedPepper Online edition, the former club hero said his team has been doing well against the big guns and hopes for the same on at Wankulukuku.
“We are a community club and you know from the community is where we command most of our support so I am calling on the loyal Baganda and Red Eagles fans to come out in their numbers to cheer the team on. I know with their support we will get a win, and that will mean a lot to our season given our position on the log.”
“Mutesa I Stadium, Wankulukuku is the Kabaka (King)’s Stadium and KCC will definitely fall like SC Villa did,” Bbosa added.
Nsimbe Furious Over Player Disappearances
Head coach of KCCA FC, George Nsimbe, has said he is unhappy after learning that one of his top strikers, Herman Wasswa, has left for trials in Vietnam.
“I was not told officially by the player or club and this has really angered me,” said Nsimbe, whose team will be looking to reclaim top position in the FUFA Super League tomorrow when they face Express FC.
The coach told sources that he only learnt from a third party that the player had left the country on Monday.
“I think it is not proper to handle things like that and besides I think Wasswa still has some time to gain experience before rushing to join the paid ranks,” added Nsimbe.
However, club secretary David Tamale confirmed that the player had requested for one week out of duty.
“We shall wait to see if he returns after the one week,” added Tamale.
The former SC Villa striker, who was top scorer last season and helped KCCA FC win the league title, is currently the club’s second leading scorer behind Tony Odur.
Early this month another KCCA FC player, and skipper of Uganda Cranes’ CHAN team, Hassan Wasswa Mawanda, also requested to go for trials in Qatar, but reportedly ended up signing a contract with a team in Vietnam.
