In short
The club early this week sacked coach Sam Ssimbwa and now Dubajic says the new team coach Alex Isabirye will bring a new philosophy and discipline in the team which has not been lacking.

Simo Dubajic, the Managing Director of Sports Club Victoria University has said changing the technical team will bring a big difference at the club.
 
The club early this week sacked coach Sam Ssimbwa and now Dubajic says the new team coach Alex Isabirye will bring a new philosophy and discipline in the team which has not been there before. He thanks Ssimbwa and his technical team for what they did but notes that changes were necessary because the atmosphere in the club had gone to bad levels.

Surprisingly Dubajic said Ssimbwa and his team were using ‘old school’ tactics to handle the team and there was no way they would continue like that. He said Ssimbwa was putting his individualism above the club.
 
However, Ssimbwa on Thursday said he will take the club to court for terminating his contract and failing to abide by what the contract states.
 
He defended his performance while still in charge at SC Victoria noting that the traditional teams likes Express and SC Villa are behind the new club. Ssimbwa’s contract was terminated together with his assistant Steven Bogere and goalkeeper’s Coach Abu Kigenyi.
 
Speaking about Ssimbwa’s threat of a possible court action, Dubajic said there is no need for the coach to take that route. He said the lawyers of the two parties should sit down and see where there is a breach. However, he added that if Ssimbwa insists on taking matters to court then it is up to him.

But when Uganda Radio Network spoke to Ssimbwa on Friday he said his lawyers have advised that they let court decide. According to the contract that URN saw, Ssimbwa was earning a monthly gross remuneration of 6.8 million shillings. He was also entitled to fuel allowance of 400,000 shillings every month, airtime of 80,000 shillings per month, medical cover for spouse and two children and group accident cover.
