Exclusive: Wasswa Bbosa Next Destination Confirmed

Former Express coach Wasswa Bbosa is set for a return in the dug out since he was axed at Wankulukuku.

The tactician has finalised negotiations with Uganda Premier League outfits Gaddafi FC, The-SportsNation can exclusively report.

Bbosa will take over the mantle at Gaddafi next season and has already been tasked to start looking for his players.

Some players at Express including winger Godfrey Lwesibawa are expected to follow suit.

Bbosa was sacked by Express on February 14 this year with the club CEO Isaac Mwesigwa citing need to improve the image of the club.

The gaffer won Express their first league title since 2011/12 last season and guided them to their maiden CECAFA Kagame Championship triumph.

Everyone was left stunned when Gaddafi relieved Coach Peter Onen of his duties last month.

The Club then retaliated saying that Onen was just given a leave as they look into reasons why results have not been going their way in the past.

Since then, he has not been reinstated, with Mubarak Wamboya and Hassan Zzungu taking on the mantle.

The decision taken in the wake of a 1-0 loss to SC Villa came when Gaddafi were in eighth with 26 points!

They are still enjoying middle table status, 8th with 27 points.

The news of Bbosa’s appointment is surely a big statement for the team that will be playing their second season in top flight.

Without doubt, Bbosa is one of the top coaches in the country, a thing he has proved during his spells at SC Villa, Express and Tooro United.

His playing career saw Bbosa feature for Mbale Heroes (1998) and Express (2002) where he won the Uganda Cup title at each of the two clubs.

Bbosa was deservedly named the Coach of the year 2021 at Airtel FUFA Awards.

And his appointment is expected to make Gaddafi a good contender for the league next season provided he adds the right players to their roster.
