Uganda Premier League side Bright Stars have parted ways with Head coach Asaph Mwebaze.
Mwebaze told The-SportsNation on Sunday that “I was sacked” and revealed no further details.
The-SportsNation has gathered that the gaffer was let go because he doesn’t have a CAF A license.
However, FUFA recently maintained minimum Coaching requirements for the forthcoming season that allow CAF B coaches to remain as head coaches for the 2023/24 season.
But starting 2024/25 season all Coaches of the UPL clubs must have CAF A or it’s equivalent.
Bright Stars whose CEO Mathias Mugwanya also left at the end of the 2022/23 season, are yet to comment on Mwebaze’s exit.
Mwebaze joined Bright Stars in July 2022, then signing a three-year deal, taking over from Paul Kiwanuka.
Then, he was making a return to the touchline since 2019 when he was the head coach of Nyamityobora.
Last season, he guided Bright Stars to 9th position with 35 points – Won 9, drew 8 and lost 11 in the league.
This, was an improvement from the previous season under Kiwanuka where the side finished 11th. However, they garnered 36 points during the campaign.
Mwebaze, formerly at Maroons and Onduparaka, also guided Bright Stars to Uganda Cup semifinal before they were eliminated by eventual champions Vipers SC.
