SUPL: Express FC parts ways with Wasswa Bbosa
Seven-time Uganda Premier League champions Express Football Club have parted ways with head coach Wasswa Bbosa over unclear reasons according to reports.
Bbosa who assumed office in May 2020 after the club had moved separate ways with George Ssimwogerere turned the club into title contenders.
However, tensions have been simmering since the start of this StarTimes Uganda Premier League season with Bbosa reportedly not seeing eye to eye with his boss club CEO Isaac Mwesigwa.
“The club and board have taken a decision to relieve the head coach of his duties. Alot has happened from the performance and discipline.” Express CEO Isaac Mwesigwa told the media on Monday.
Some corners have attributed Bbosa’s exit to the club’s indifferent 2021/22 league campaign as they occupy fifth with 29 points after 17 games.
The last two results draws against Soltilo Bright Stars and Tooro United at home worsened the situation at the Wankulukuku based club.
That tally has seen them slip ten points off the table leadership, with leaders Vipers SC amassing 39.
In his only full season, the gaffer led Express to the 2020/21 Uganda Premier League and then later the CECAFA Kagame Cup in Tanzania. The Red Eagles also reached the semi finals of the Uganda Cup, losing to BUL FC.
It has been confirmed that his assistant James Odoch will take over on interim basis.
This is the second time Bbosa parts ways with the ‘Mukwano Gwabanji.’ After his disappointing spell at Wankulukuku in 2014, the club sacked him before rewarding him with the same role in 2020.
It should be noted that Bbosa was part of the technical team that was heading by Sam Simbwa and won the 2011-12 league title.
