Mbarara City new coach Sadiq Sempigi will mark his third return to the western side when they face Six O’clock in the 2021-2022 Stanbic Uganda Cup round of 64 on Sunday at Kizinda playground in Bushenyi.
The away contest against Six O’clock will be Sempigi and his assistant Geoffrey Ibrahim Wasswa’s first test on the new job in preparation for the 2021-2022 StarTimes Uganda Premier League second round.
The CAF B qualified coach resigned as Livingstone Mbabazi assistant at Arua Hill FC to replace Hussein Mbalangu who threw in the towel at the Ankole Lions.
Sempigi had left the same role at the start of this very season and returns to Mbarara City for the third time having worked under Brian Ssenyondo, Mbabazi and independently after Ssenyondo’s sacking.
Mbalangu cited inefficient administration as the main reason for the side’s poor performance and resignation.
Sempigi seems to have mastered the internal administration of the club owned by Mbarara City South MP Mwine Mpaka.
So far, all the Premier league clubs have manged to qualify to the Round of 32 of the competition.
