Any team that loses a key player is bound to take time to cope but that’s not the case with Vipers after losing Farouk Miya at least according to assistant coach Edward Golola.

Miya who joined Belgium’s Standard Liege in January was the alpha and Omega of the team when they won the league title last season but since his departure, Vipers has played four competitive games winning three times and losing once in all competitions.

“First of all, we told the boys to believe in themselves and forget about Miya,” he told Kawowo Sports. “And game by game, they have shown that and to me, they are coping well without him,” he added.

The league champions won 2-0 in Uganda Cup round of 64, then beat Nigeria’s Enyimba International 1-0 in CAF Champions League before winning 2-0 against Sadolin Paints in the league with their only loss coming against Enyimba.
