Asaph Mwebaze began his tenure as coach of Nyamityobora FC on a losing note falling to SC Villa on Friday at Muteesa II stadium,Wankulukuku.
Mwebaze formerly at Onduaparaka FC was confirmed on Thursday evening replacing sacked James Odoch and the next day, he was on bench taking charge of his first game which he lost 1-0.
Despite the loss, the outspoken tactician indicated he was impressed with the performance of the players especially in the second half.
“We started the game on a slow note and that somehow cost us but I’m happy that we greatly improved in the second half where we created more chances than SC Villa. We were just unlucky to put away any.” He said.
He also indicated that he was impressed with how the players quickly adapted to what he was telling them despite not having a training session with them.
“I’m happy they were getting the instructions even when we changed systems and strategy in the second half. That was a positive for me and we shall go back and try to address the mistakes I saw today.” Mwebaze added.
Asked if he is confident the team he has will do enough to survive relegation, Mwebaze explained he will have to get more time to assess the squad he has.
“ I have not been at club not even for a day so I will need some time to make a proper assessment and try to improve where we seem lacking.
Nyamityobra FC are currently glued to the bottom of the table on four points and their survival will need extra efforts to attain the target.
