The newly-promoted Ugandan Premier League side Kitara FC are in search of a new head coach.
According to the club’s Chief Executive Officer Joshua Atugonza the club is set to replace Mark Twinamatsiko after a successful campaign.
Outgoing coach Mark Twinamatsiko opted not to renew his contract after helping the club earn a hard-fought promotion to the top-tier in October.
“We are in a formal process of hiring a new head coach and beefing up the technical area as well as key player additions,” Atugonza was quoted by Kawowo Sports.
Kitara FC job attract a number of applicants
The Kitara top job is expected to attract a number of applicants ahead of the Premier League 2020/21 season that is set to begin in mid-November.
Reports had emerged Kitara administration convened a high-level meeting on Saturday to deliberate on the emerging coaching issue.
Twinamatsiko led the Hoima-based club to a 1-0 win against Kiboga Young at the Fufa Technical Centre in Njeru to seal their place in the top-tier.
The CEO also revealed the club will make some signings in order to strengthen the squad.
Striker George Ssenkaaba and midfielder Jamil Nvule Kisitu signed for Express FC and Bright Stars FC respectively and that necessitated the need to bring in new players.
