KCCA FC Chairman Martin Ssekajja has assured to render required support to newly contracted manager Morley Byekwaso.
The chairman who replaced Aggrey Ashaba on the role in 2019, made the remarks at the unevelling ceremony of Coach Morely Byekwaso.
The gaffer has been featuring on interim basis for the closing part of the 2020/21 season after the club parted ways with manager Mike Mutebi in March.
Whilst the Hippos coach has signed a three year contract to prolong his role as team manager.
“We thank all our fans for the great contribution towards the success of KCCA Football club, both locally and at the continent stage”.
Today am here to unveil Coach Morley Byekwaso Moses Ochama as our new head coach at the club. He is formerly a player of KCCA FC, he is been an Assistant Manager on three different occasions, he has also been an interim manager for close to four months.”
For the past five years, former head coach Mike Mutebi has revived the clubs fortunes elevating the side into one of the most feared clubs in and outside Uganda.
And Byekwaso now takes on a KCCA side whose demand for excellent results from the board and fans is well scripted.
And Sekajja says the new manager understands the demands of the club:
He understands the business requirements and demands of the various stakeholders at the club.”
“On behalf of the board, we want to assure all our stakeholders that we shall be giving him the necessary support required inoder for him to take this club to the next stage.”
The Uganda Kobs head coach comes at a time when the Lugogo based club is reeling from trophy less past two seasons and now, the club is headed for a new lease of life next season.
However, Ssekajja believes it’s a matter of time for Byekwaso to take the club forward.
“We believe given the time and support from all our stakeholders, he will be able to take our club forward and help us achieve past all our past expectations. We pray that God will keep safe so that we can live to see our planned expectations.”
Byekwaso who is the Uganda Kobs coach, also guided the Uganda Hippos to the finals of the AFCON U20 Championship in Mauritania.
He will be looking at rebuilding the club, as they seek to bring back its lost glory for the past two seasons.
