Magumba back at Villa

16 time national football league Champions SC Villa have re-signed former captain Hakim ‘Boda Boda’ Magumba as a first team player.

Since Mike Mutebi took charge at Villa Park late last year he has been persuading Magumba to return to competitive football.

Magumba is regarded a legend at Villa and his return to the first team will enable the young players to see what a seasoned professional he is.

Magumba was part of the historical Villa side that won seven straight league titles from 1998 to 2004 and he has been working as team-coordinator and also part of Mutebi’s coaching team.

The midfielder had a short spell with former coach Srdjan Zivojnov early last year and there was a wave of excitement around Villa Park.

The fans returned in numbers to watch the training session and the league matches too.
