Furious Express fans have poured out their anger after new signing Godfrey Lwesibawa confirmed his allegiance to his former club SC Villa.
This, is the latest twist on the rivalry between two eternal rivals Express and SC Villa.
Lwesibawa was unveiled by Express on August 25 after signing a two-year deal with the Wankulukuku-based side.
Neyo, as Lwesibawa calls himself on Facebook, took to social media to express his delight after returning to Express. However, after a confrontation with Villa fans, he let it loose in the comments section saying that Villa is still his team.
It is said that Lwesibawa is a staunch Villa fan, and coordinates activities for Villa fans branch in his home area in Kiyunga Mukono.
The bitter Red Eagles have asked Lwesibawa to apologise for being unprofessional and have asked the club management to follow suit.
On various platforms, others have asked the winger to terminate his contract.
In dramatic turn of events, Lwesibawa who studied at Kiyunga primary school and also played at Kiyunga FC, said that his account was just hacked.
“Someone is playing around with my Facebook, someone is trying to bring me down,” the former Tooro United player said.
Express FC is yet to issue out a statement on the ongoing rage on social media as the fans continue to become restless.
This will be his second spell for Lwesibawa at Express FC, a team he played for in 2013 when he was spotted by Coach Wasswa Bbosa. He later left Express to Villa in 2016 before signing for Tooro United in 2018.
Lwesibawa is one of the six signings at Express FC so far; Crispus Kusiima, Denis Otim, Richard Bbosa, Abel Eturude and Mustafa Kiragga are the new additions.
