Head Coach of KCCA FC, George Nsimbe has said they are working hard to improve their form in the 2014/2015 Uganda Premier League (UPL).
The defending champions are placed 10th on the log after winning only two games from their five games played. But Nsimbe has said he is not worried because he is aware injuries were also a major cause of their poor form at the start of the League.
“We are slowly getting our form and we shall be back among the top teams like has always been the case,” said a confident Nsimbe. The Coach explained that since the league has just started are there are still several matches to be played, he trusts his players to respond and win matches.
After the departure of star striker Tony Odur who joined Zambian League Champions Nkana FC, the Ugandan Champions have been struggling since the start of the season. Injuries to Brian Umony, Brian Majwega and defender Richard Kasagga also affected the club.
Nsimbe says in an interview that although he thinks the League will be more competitive this season, he trusts his team still has what it takes to retain the title.
Uganda’s most decorated club, SC Villa currently lead the log with 13 points, while unbeaten SC Vipers and Express FC are second and third respectively with a similar number of points.
