The Club that will represent Uganda in the 2014 CAF Confederations Cup after winning the Uganda Cup last season recently parted ways with Alex Isabirye and elevated Morley Byakwaso to the post.
 
“We are very comfortable with the youthful coach Byekwaso and now Nestory Kizito (ex-professional in Serbia) to help on other technical matters instead of thinking of a foreign Coach,” Dubajic told URN in an interview at his office in Naguru.
 
The Club chairman insisted that although the club is thinking big, their focus now is tapping talent from the grassroots and making sure that their players develop a strong win and disciplined philosophy.
 
“We are trying to push our club to the next level to be very competitive locally and intentionally and keep the winning culture. “All this does not come quickly, but takes lots of planning which we are doing,” added Simo who is very passionate about the game of football.
 
Early this year the Club sacked experienced coach Sam Ssimbwa and his assistants Steven Bogere and Abdul Kigenyi before Isabirye took charge. Ssimbwa is now coach of Rwanda side Police FC, while Bogere is handling SC Villa.
 
His team qualified for the top flight football two seasons ago and currently tops the table with 27 points from 14. They are the only team in the FUFA Super League to lose only one match.

But although SC Victoria University’s biggest dream is to win one of Africa’s biggest trophy (Champions league), Simo thinks the philosophy of most players in Uganda generally needs to change. “They need to know what they want to get from football and also work hard to achieve. There are no short cuts in trying to get to the top,” he added.
