Odoch resigns as Nyamityobora coach after KCCA FC thrashing


Nyamityobora’s James Odoch became the third Uganda Premier League coach to relinquish his duties after a 6-1 loss to KCCA FC on Sunday.

He followed in the foot steps of Asaph Mwebaze (Onduparaka) and Moses Basena (Sports Club Villa).

“I have decided to resign my job as head coach at Nyamityobora F.C having discussed with the club director Ali Ssekatawa. I wish the club the best in the league” Odoch who has also handled Jinja Municipal Council and URA Said.

The former Uganda Cranes, Sports Club and Express winger had handled Nyamityobora since the FUFA Big League days.

Odoch’s decision had also followed rants on twitter by the Club Chairman Ben Immanuel Misagga concerning the choice of coach and overall performance by the club.

Some people expect me to clap and proceed with laughter because a coach has lost 6 games, draw once and one win. Am a winner and achiever, then this is not place. 6-1, this is unacceptable 

Ben Immanuel Misagga, Nyamityobora Football Club Chairman

In eight matches played so far, Nyamityobora F.C has managed just one win, the 2-1 victory against nemesis entity Mbarara City in the Ankole derby that was staged on a neutral Mutesa II Wankulukuku stadium.

There also played to a draw with Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) and the other six games have been losses. Misagga has since promised to name Odoch’s successor in three day’s time.

Odoch can not match nyamityobora FC technical works, within three days we shall give Nyamityobora another person who can measure to the challenge, I DONT GROOM COACHES, Nyamityobora is not a learning process for coaching

Ben Immanuel Misagga, Nyamityobora Football Club Chairman

Nyamityobora’s next league engagement is at home against another struggling side Sports Club Villa this Friday, 30th November 2018.
