Former SC Villa head coach Petros Koukouras has come out to express he should have been granted more time with the record 16 time league champions to bring back the much needed success.

The Greek tactician was shown the exit door on Thursday, just a year into his three-year contract that was signed at the start of the 2021/22 season.

“I have officially terminated my contract with SC Villa. It’s been a season full of emotions and great memories,” Koukouras posted on his Twitter account.

“Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough time to achieve what we wanted but I leave as a friend. I won’t say goodbye but see you soon.”

He went on to thank players for their commitment and dedication during his stay at the club.

“Lastly I can’t forget our amazing fans, I thank you for the love and support you had for me. Always a proud Jogoo,” he added.

The top officials at Villa considered the 2021/22 season a failure under Koukouras given that they finished 12th on the 16-team Uganda Premier League log with 33 points, only five points above the relegation zone.

Koukouras’ assistant Jackson Magera was placed in the head coach role temporarily as the club searches for a permanent head coach.

Koukouras succeeded Edward Kaziba and it is reported that Villa has approached both Mike Mutebi and Abdallah Mubiru over the possibility of replacing the Greek coach.
