Express FC CEO Isaac Mwesigwa has revealed the reason for the board’s decision to sack Head coach Wasswa Bbosa.
Mwesigwa delivered the news of Bbosa’s sacking to the tactician and his Technical team on Monday midday in a meeting at Wankulukuku that was also attended by the club’s secretariat.
Mwesigwa stated that they sacked Bbosa “to protect the club’s brand.”
“We have been getting divergent views on the direction of the club, this can be seen in the way the team has been performing and a number of off-the-pitch issues with the coach, there were many Disciplinary issues.
“We thought that the brand of Express needed to be protected and as such the board took the decision that for us to move forward, we need to make changes and hence we decided to relieve Coach Wasswa Bbosa off his duties.”
The shocking developments come just few months after Bbosa guided Express to league and CECAFA Kagame Cup triumph.
Mwesigwa added: “It wasn’t an easy decision but we had to do the right thing. We realised that we had to move forward.”
Bbosa had earlier fallen out with Mwesigwa and the gaffer who replaced George Ssimwogererein February 2020 claimed that the CEO was paying referees for Express to lose games!
Bbosa’s sacking came at a time when the gaffer had about six months remaining on his contract.
He had renewed his stay at the start of the season for one year.
Mwesigwa confirmed that James Odoch and Daniel Kiwanuka, who were the assistant and goalkeeping coach, will take over on an interim basis.
Bbosa’s last game as Express FC Coach was a 2-2 draw with Tooro United that left the Red Eagles 10 points behind leaders Vipers SC.
