This will be Wakiso Giants’ fourth season in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League and there has always been an improvement as far as the table standing is concerned in the previous three
Finishing in the top positions, at least fourth should be a realistic objective, but, according to the new head coach John ‘Ayala’ Luyinda, that will require a bit of patience.
“A look at the time the club has spent in the league portrays that it improves each season and that is positivity,” Luyinda told Football256 in an interview.
“Based on the position the club attained last season my tenure does not come easy because it means that we have to enter the top positions.”
“We are all focused on making this team become better and together with my technical team we have made all the necessary preparations and we are ready.”
“However, the attribute of patience is very important and that way game by game we hope to move towards the top positions,” he stated.
During their maiden campaign 2019/20, they finished 10th, and ninth in the following term while in the preceding season, they managed the seventh position.
Even though Wakiso Giants have not been in the UPL for a long time, they have become a popular club in a short time, on and off the pitch.
The Purple Sharks are a team not afraid of hiring and firing and during their short stay in the UPL so far, they have acted so on a host of coaches.
“Coaching football is my job and I have never been scared of being sacked and I do not think that can happen when you are producing good results,” Luyinda noted.
“I am going to try my level best to bring good results to the table because I am aware that is the only way to save my job not only here at Wakiso but also anywhere I will be or have been.”
“Much as I request for the time it does not make sense for my bosses to keep me around if I am not producing positive results.
“If things do not go the right way they will always try to look for the best solution for the team,” added the former Police FC assistant coach.
The demands for success are high at Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium hence the change of managerial personnel time and again.
Douglas Bamweyana, Livingstone Mbabazi, Kefa Kisala, Deo Sserwaddda, and Alex Gitta are some of the coaches Wakiso Giants have used previously.
Luyinda oversaw the recently concluded transfer window where the club signed several players in preparation for the new season.
Goalkeeper Bashir Ssekagya, Mikidad Ssenyonga, and Norman Ojik are some of the players he signed.
Whereas players including; Goalkeeper Derrick Emukule, Edward Satulo, Simon Namwanja, Fahad Kawooya, and others left the club.
They will be away from home for the start of their 2022/23 season when they visit KCCA FC on Saturday, October 1.
