- SC Villa fans threatened to beat up Wasswa Bbosa after team drew 2-2 with Lweza
- Bul fans stormed Sunday’s training session to get rid of Frank Anyau
The Uganda Premier League Coaches Association has strongly condemned fans violence against coaches.
This follows threats by SC Villa fans on Coach Wasswa Bbosa in the aftermath of a 2-2 stalemate with Lweza on Saturday.
Bbosa, who joined the Villa Park side a couple of days to the start of the second round was targeted by the fans at Nakivubo who accuse him of destabilizing the club after they drew a third successive league match.
After less than 24 hours, Bul FC fans stormed the club’s training ground and demanded for resignation of Frank ‘Video’ Anyau as the side dawdles in relation zone.
“As top tier coaches through our association, we condemn the acts of violence, threats and hooliganism against coaches,” Abdallah Mubiru, the chairman of the association said.
“It’s a pity but fans must know where their power stops. Let them do what they are supposed to do and leave decision making to club chairpersons and owners,” he added.
Mubiru, a victim of fans threats and attacks while at KCCA and Vipers comforted Anyau and Bbosa insisting that as coaches, they stand with them in such trying moments.
We stand with the victims in such testing times and we continue to back each and every one in a bid to improve our job.
On a good note though, Shafik Bisaso, whose job is on the knife edge at the club got the support of the fans who carried placards standing with him.
