Following the suspension of Asuman Harishe by the club, SC Villa players resolved to stand by their embattled captain and refrain from attending any training sessions until the club pardons him and also attend to the key issues raised by Harishe.
The veteran defender was suspended by the club on accounts of indiscipline and improper conduct when he conducted an interview with the Daily Monitor expressing his and teammates’ grievances that were not attended to by the club.
Villa are bound to host Vipers SC in the return leg of the Uganda cup quarter finals at Bombo Military Grounds on Wednesday 2nd June.
However, the players have not attended any training sessions since Thursday’s 1-1 stalemate with Vipers at St Mary’s Kitende in the first leg.
This morning, The FUFA president Eng. Moses Magogo a sworn Villa supporter has convened a meeting between him and the players in a bid to convince them to return to training and honour the match on Wednesday.
Sources to this website further revealed that Magogo promised to meet the players again on Friday this week after meeting the Interim committee that is in charge of the club.
The players have agreed to return to training tomorrow and prepare for their key meeting with Vipers SC.
This is not the first time that Eng. Moses Magogo has intervened in such a manner. In November 2019, Villa players had also decided to put their tools down prior to their trip to Arua in preparation of a league match due to reasons related to lack of pay.
Interestingly, they won 3-1
