Assistant coach, Moses Oloya’s team post-match talk bust-up with club owner Simo Dubajic has exposed a rift threatening to tear SC Victoria University’s title-obsessed squad apart.
The FSL club restored their title hopes humping Big league side The Saints 5-1 in Namboole on Tuesday to advance to the last 8 of the Uganda Cup which they own last year in Masindi.
Simo was eager to know why the substitution was done but in the process of getting the reason, he almost exchanged blows with his team’s assistant coach.
Red Pepper Online Sport understands the incident was the final straw for many club players frustrated with the Serbian boss’ attitude, the latest being winger Yasser Mugerwa’s social media rant last week on why he had signed a contract with the club.
Oloya told his boss that, “Uganda is my home country and I can be here even without you.
Several players and non-playing staff at the 3 year-old club are believed to be fed up with Simo’s ‘win-at-all costs’ demand at the club, and to feel he’s had a bad attitude since they failed to overcome Congolese outfit CS Don Bosco in the preliminaries of the CAF Confederations Cup in February which meant they must either defending the Uganda Cup or win the league.
SCVU fourth on the log host Mbale side CRO in a crunch FUFA Super League three-pointer on Friday, having recorded just seven wins in 12 matches in 2014 and with morale at a new low after Oloya threw in the towel in the aftermath of the Saints game.
SCVU have decided not to take any public announcement as regards the Oloya spat, but it is understood the atmosphere remained frosty when the squad returned to training.
Close friends to Oloya this morning told ChimpReports an online publication that “Oloya is not ready to apologise and he will be formally throwing in the towel.”
Oloya’s phones are still off.
