SC Villa has embarked on a rebuilding process after impartial 2014/15 season that ended with Uganda Cup silverware.
For starters, Uganda’s record (16-times) champions have hired the services of Spaniard Antonio Flores on a two-year contract taking over from interim coach Ibrahim Kirya.
“It’s true we signed a two year contract with Flores (Antonio) and we expect him to start work in July 2015,” Misagga confirmed
Flores, who has previously handled Polideportivo Aguadulce’s U16 side, a fifth level of competition in Spanish League Football promised to improve matters at the club.
The Spaniard is believed to have signed the contract in March during his brief visit to the country although he was unveiled to media then as “a scout from Spain here to help identify and connect SC Villa players to European clubs.
” “We thought it was just not the right time to announce the signing,” Misagga said of the club’s decision to refer to Flores as a scout.
The 42-year-old Spaniard, however, revealed in an interview published by La Voz de Almeria last month that a deal had been finalized between him and the club.
“This March I was in Kampala, where the club invited me to access all infrastructures and I showed them a general methodology and analysis in preparation for next season.
After, I signed two seasons, the 2015-16 and 2016-17,” he is quoted to have said.
The coach’s last work station was in the fifth level of competition in the Spanish League Football with Polideportivo Aguadulce’s U-16 side.
Villa continues to be busy in the transfer window to refresh their squad in preparation for next season and next year’s CAF Confederations Cup.
Already last season’s League top scorer Umar Kasumba from Uganda Police FC, Taddeo Lwanga (Express FC), Robert Achema (Bul FC), Ambrose Kirya (Jinja MC) and James Kasibante (URA FC) among others.
They are also said to be eyeing FUFA Big League side goalkeeper Stephen Latex Odong who at the beginning of the year tried out with Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Tusker FC but his transfer hit a snag after his parent club failed to release him in time.
