FUFA will unveil a new head coach today 2pm at the FUFA house Mengo after thorough months of examination.
Although not officially revealed, given his resignation at Egyptian club Ismail SC yesterday, chances are high that French tactician Sebastien Desabre will take over the Cranes from care taker Moses Basena.
In reports from other Media, the Coach who is said to have modeled Ismail SC into a solid and compact team since his arrival in July was convinced to stay in vein.
“The board of directors convened and tried to convince him to change his mind but he insisted to leave.”
Desabre who helped Ismail to win their last match by 5-0 against Ragaa left the team leading the table with seven points clear after 16 games but in a statement from his former club, due to a lucrative offer by FUFA for him, he opted out.
“The Coach has informed the board of directors after the Ragaa match of his desire to end his contract with the club, saying he had an offer from Uganda that he can’t turn it down.”
Meanwhile Moses Basena has been applauded by FUFA for taking care of the Cranes following the abrupt abandoning of the team by former coach Micho Sredejovic.
According to FUFA, Moses’ efforts deserve a reward hence offered the Ugandan the chance to go for a coaching program in the United States of America.
“As a result, Basena has been selected by FUFA for a Special Coaching Development Program in the United States of America next year.”
In part of the article published in the FUFA website, it’s written that the FA introduced the long term coaching program as a way towards developing coaches for further educational programs with an aim of improving the technical expertise of Ugandan coaches actively involved in the league.
The fact that Basena is headed to America for the coaching program makes him the first Ugandan coach to benefit from the newly introduced program.
