Many coaches run mad when their teams happen to lose games, this is not the case with Vipers SC head coach Michael Nam Ouma.
The Kenyan tactician claimed that it was okay for his side to lose Saturday’s StarTimes Uganda Premier League game against Villa at Kitende.
Vipers lost 3-1 against a Villa side that didn’t put a foot wrong while the league holders were in all sorts of confusion defensively.
“Its okay for us to lose, it will actually give us time to reflect on our mistakes and work on them,” Ouma firmly told journalists at the post match press conference.
He however criticised his team’s attitude during the early stages of the game which led to the result.
“My players started the game at a very low tempo and after 20 minutes we had already conceded twice which was a setback,” Ouma said.
“Yes, my players did mistakes in defence but mistakes normally occur, because we are all human beings.”
“It was a bad day in office, we were so disorganised today and the best team on the day won,” he added.
SC Villa’s 3-1 win against Vipers was their first since December 14th 2018, they won 2-0 against Express FC at Mandela National Stadium Namboole.
It was the first time for the Venoms to lose at home, they last lost to URA in November 2017.
Vipers were on a 19 game unbeaten run at home but a 34 game run overall in the league
Villa is now 12th on 16 team log with18 points, Vipers is still second on 37, before behind holders KCCA FC.
