Sports Club Villa has unveiled 13 new players among 25 at Villa Park. The players include former KCCA and Uganda Cranes midfielder Hassan Wasswa (in photo below).


Wasswa has shaved his dreadlocks as demanded by the club president Immanuel Misagga and signed a two year contract at the club.

Other new players the club unveiled include Zambian veteran striker Mweetwa Nchimunya, former KCCA goalkeeper Ali Kimera, defenders Derrick Walulya, Musa Doka, Fahad Kawooya, Aziz Kemba and Erisa Sekisambu among others.

As the technical director Polly Ouma showed the players to club president Immanuel Misagga, he noted that the 25 players are aimed at restoring victory at the club.

“We have been in camp at Mityana and I assure you we have done our best to pick this team. All we expect from them is discipline to achieve success,” Ouma noted.

The team captain Isaac Kirabira said that, “this time round, you should expect something from us. We shall not shame you because we do not want to be ashamed.”

Misagga revealed that he has budgeted up to $300000 (sh800m) to run the club in the 2014/15 season but warned the players and officials to achieve or they will not continue at the club.

“This team is for the next two years but we have put a lot of money in it not because you are our friends. The club you are in is the strongest in East and Central Africa. I don’t care how much we have invested in you, discipline and performance is paramount,” Misagga noted.

“We must be able to sell at least six of you to bigger leagues out of

Uganda. That way we shall grow and you will be able to make more money and advance in your career.” Misagga added.

Notably missing among their targets is Yayo Lutimba, who could not shave his dreadlocks as Misagga demanded and Asumani Alishe, who failed to agree contractual terms with the club.
