Edward Golola vexed with the way Vipers fired him

Former Vipers SC head coach Edward Golola feels aggravated with the way the Kitende based club axed him in the middle of the current season.

Vipers parted ways with Golola on January 23rd after a humiliating exit from Stanbic Uganda Cup by minnows Kajjansi United.

However, according to the experienced tactician, Vipers had to be patient with him because his aim was to build a dominant team in Ugandan football.

“I did my best job and I loved the club but there was a lot of gossip at the team. I wanted to build a new team to dominate Ugandan football again but the administrators wanted trophies,” Edward Golola was quoted saying by Daily Monitor.

“They wanted school boys to graduate into professionals at the same time they bought experienced players which made my ambition complicated,” he added.

He had promoted several youngsters like Karim Watambala, Jackob Okao, Ahmed Amayo, and Bobosi Byaruhanga, whose talents are propitious.

Golola hinted about returning into the dugout and his favorite teams to coach are Wakiso Giants or Proline FC.

“Wakiso Giants and Proline FC are not far from my ideal destinations,” he insisted.

Since his sacking, Golola has never returned to St Mary’s Stadium to watch any of Vipers’ matches under Kajoba and doesn’t expect a quick reunion.

“At the moment I’m working toward improving my coaching weaknesses like set-piece artistry.”

“I have been approached by four top-flight clubs already but I’m still taking my time to decide the next course of action.”

“For now I want to first study each team that comes up with a proposal.”

“I want to work with a team that gives me full authority to mould the team into an outfit that I want.”

“I want a team that allows me to build the kids as I did at Vipers only that they wanted immediate success,” he noted.

He has been drafted on the Busiro team that is preparing to play in the Buganda Masaza tourney to work alongside Paul Kiwanuka.
