Jackson Mayanja is close to agreeing a deal to become the new SC Villa coach , the club has confirmed.

The Jogoos are in search for a replacement for Wasswa Bbosa who left for Soana FC following expiry of his Villa Park contract.

“Nothing has been agreed as yet,” said SC Villa president Ben Immanuel Misagga. “But I can confirm talks are in advanced stages to have him as our new coach,” Misagga confirmed to Kawowo Sports .

Mayanja is unattached at the moment after he did part ways with Tanzania giants Simba months ago and has previously linked with a move to URA before his former KCCA teammate Sam Ssimbwa earned a permanent contract .

In case the deal goes through,  he will join a long list of coaches that have worked under Misagga in the last four years.

Steven Bogere,  Wasswa Bbosa,  Ibrahim Kirya,  Antonio Flores,  Deo Sserwadda, Shafik Bisaso and Bbosa are some of the coaches to manage the Jogoos in recent times.

He will also become a third KCCA Legend after Mike Mutebi and Sam Ssimbwa to manage SC Villa.


  • Good for Villa. Just keep Miya miya away from the Cranes.

  • Hmmmn, I doubt this marriage will work out. Two temperamentally erratic people in the names of Missagga and Mayanja!! Will they manage?
    The other thing is that SC Villa seems to be a club in a hurry all the time. They have never sat down to build for a strong future. And the results are there for all to see – mediocrity. Misagga should forget the idea of quick success and slowly build a strong team, the way the Express of the 1990’s was. There is no way you can keep changing coaches and players every year and expect to grow as a team.
    The simple reason Vipers beat Villa to this years league trophy is because Vipers had more experienced players who had been in the same team for more than two years.
