Express FC have relieved club legend, George Ssimwogerere, of his duties as head coach, replacing him with another former player, also former Head Coach, Richard Wasswa Bbosa.
96 days ago, Bbosa left cash-strapped Tooro United, citing the Western Uganda club’s management’s failure to support him in the execution of his job.
In a statement released to the media on the morning of Tuesday 4th February 2020, Express FC thanked Sim-Lala, as he is popularly known, for his service at the club.
Bbosa was in 2016 sacked as “The Red Eagles” Head Coach following what sources at the time said was a failure to win 3 out of 4 games to save his job.
A string of poor results, including the humiliating 6-1 demolition at the hands of relegation-threatened Police FC, will have contributed to Ssimwogerere’s sacking.
CEO Hamza Jjunju is also reportedly on the brink of exiting the club, with a failure to come to agreement on a new contract being highlighted. KCCA FC fan & player intermediary, Isaac Mwesigwa, is touted as the man that will be taking up the position in the near future.
James Odoch will deputize Wasswa Bbosa, having earlier this season deputized Kefa Kisala at Wakiso Giants, while Sam Kawalya joins Bbosa’s backroom staff as goalkeeping coach.
Express FC currently lie 13th on the StarTimes Uganda Premier League log on 21 points, just 1 away from safety.
