Last respects for Musana
The football fraternity paid homage to fallen Simba defender Fahad Musana who was laid to rest in Iganga yesterday.
Players and fans observed a moment of silence at Lugogo. However, the players never wore the black armbands as is normally the tradition.
Probably due to the player’s death, both sets of fans were so cold. They barely cheered their teams. It wasn’t until Herman Wasswa’s 73nd minute penalty that KCC fans started to make some noise.
Women in football
Many in the local soccer fraternity are excited about the league and the women haven’t been left out. No, we are not talking about the female fans that turned up for matches yesterday but the match officials. Centre referee Aisha Ssemambo and her assistant Catherine Nagadda had good control of the game.
Police were, however, bitter with by penalty decision that went against them. Beyond that, there were not so many contentious calls.
We all love football banter but it gets better when coaches and players are involved. Coach Sam Ssimbwa engaged in a battle of words with a few Fufa officials and fans over his playing and coaching career.
The fans had a go at him over his sacking from KCC and whether he has ever won a league title! He shot back: “Muli bato? Eky’ekyenda mu musanvu mwe abakyiwangula?” Translating to: are you guys too young to remember that I won it in 1997?
