It is barely two months since URA FC head coach Sam SSibwa served a four match touchline ban for being found guilty of bringing the game into disrepute.
The outspoken coach who is not new to controversies could be in trouble yet again.
Ssimbwa has been summoned by FUFA Competitions Disciplinary Panel to explain his remarks he made during the Uganda Premier League monthly awards function held at Kati Kati restaurant on Monday.
“URA FC Head coach Sam Ssimbwa has been summoned by FUFA Competitions Disciplinary Panel to comments he made during the Pilsner Coach of the Month awards ceremony on Monday,
” reads the statement from FUFA.
The former Uganda Cranes player while receiving the coach of the month of March award indicated he is not loved by some of the officials at FUFA including the President, Eng. Moses Magogo.
“I no longer want to speak to the media because some people change what I say. I remember when I was at KCCA FC, someone went and changed what I said. They worked with Moses Magogo to have me sacked,” said Ssimbwa. “Sometimes I even think when I don’t win as many awards it might be down to the federation. That’s why I take part in everything be it education, or coaching courses,” he added.
“You know I’m not liked at Fufa so I do everything to see that I’m perfect. I have a good relationship with journalists but not all of you. Some are always looking for negative comments for me to pay fines. When I was at KCCA someone trapped me with a recorder and whether the voice was mine or not I don’t remember. Then they took it to Fufa and I lost my job. And they connived with Magogo and I lost my job which I cherished because KCCA is a family to me,” he further explained.
It should be noted that after the game against Kirinya Jinja SS in January, Ssimbwa made remarks in his post match press briefing that were termed tribal and was slapped with a four match suspension plus a cash fine of two million shillings.
He will appear before the panel on 12th April 2019 at FUFA House.
