Uganda Cranes assistant head coach Abdallah Mubiru claims that club owners are the ones to be blamed for the many sackings of coaches experienced in the 2019/2020 Uganda Premier League.
According to the soft-spoken tactician, some of the club owners do not back their coaches sufficiently to be able to perform well.
The club owners fail to bring in the sort of players that fit in their respective setups yet they continue to demand positive results.
“Surprisingly, the owners of such clubs are interested in good results but are not investing adequately to get those results,” Abdallah Mubiru was quoted saying.
“A coach can request for a player but the club is unable to get that player.”
“As a coach, you are left with no option but to scout for promising players from lower divisions yourself and groom them so they can fit in and hopefully give you the desired results. It is a lot of pressure,” Abdallah Mubiru added.
The Police FC gaffer says some top-flight clubs are short-sighted and impatient, and all they aim for are results on the pitch.
Who are some of the sacked coaches?
The 2019/2020 season saw Wakiso Giants part ways with Kefa Kisala who was replaced by Livingstone Mbabazi.
However, Mbabazi was also sacked due to poor performances and was replaced by Deo Sserwadda.
Vipers SC also sacked their head coach Edward Golola after their shameful exit from Stanbic Uganda Cup by Kajjansi United. Golola was replaced by Fred Kajoba.
Express FC also parted ways with their tactician George Ssimwogerere who was replaced by Wasswa Bbosa.
To join Express FC, Bbosa had just parted ways with Tooro United after the two parties failed to agree on certain terms.
