Coach Jackson Mayanja’s resignation from his post as Kyetume FC head coach was a culmination of smearing of discord at the Mukono based club, the coach claims.
Mayanja threw in a towel in the aftermath of Kyetume’s 3-1 heavy loss to Mbarara City, a result that pushed the Slaughters closer to the relegation swamp in their second season UPL attempt.
During his short lived second spell as head coach, the former KCCA FC player fared miserably – Winning just three games out of the 12 games after replacing Alex Isabirye in April.
He has however moved to clear the air as to why he had to acrimoniously cut ties with the club he guided to league promotion last season.
“First of all l am a Kyetume FC strong faithful,” Mayanja said in a whatsapp voice note relayed to this website.
“I am disappointed that rumours have been circuiting that Iam even dead! Those rumors are very false. It’s true that I am sick but not dead,” he added with much conviction.
Mayanja said that a cocktail of infighting, non-payment of players and coaches sealed his fate.
“You can’t perform when players are not paid and motivated. That’s why the team could not perform,” the former KCCA FC star stated.
“Then my work was interfered with powers from above. We were all pulling in different directions.
“There many rebels at the club and it’s good that I met the fans and I told them what was happening.”
The Nakisuga based side is langushing in the 14th place on the UPL log with 23 points out of 27 games with three games left to play.
