Kefa Kisaala is still the right man to lead Express Football Club as they seek to rebuild the club to its former glory. That’s according to club chairman Kiryowa Kenneth Kiwanuka.
Reports had earlier indicated that the Red Eagles tactician had been sacked by the club just hours after their 2-0 loss to Police FC at their home in Wankulukuku.
The rumours were fuelled by fans behavior after the game after they turned rowdy at the final whistle, storming the technical staff to demand answers about the mediocrity of their team.
Pleas and cries of calmness from the club chairman Kiryowa fell on deaf ears as the fans called for the heads of coach Kisaala with some even trying to vandalise some of the facilities at the stadium.
Kiwanuka came out to clear the air on the coach’s situation claiming that he is not aware of any sacking by the club and that if a decision were to be made, it would be made official to members of the public and edia.
“This is not true!! When we make a decision we officially communicate it. Kefa Kisaala is still the head coach @ExpressFCUganda,” Kiryowa reacted on a tweet.
“Kisala is still the head coach at Express and if a sack were to be effected, the technical committee has to first sit and evaluate the situation which has not happened. I urge you to treat this as a mere rumour” Kiryowa told watchdog Uganda.
Goals from Juma Balinnya on the half hour mark and Johnson Odong’s third for the season compelled the Red Eagles to their sixth loss of the season. So far, the Wankulukuku side has also drawn six games and won just five while conceding 19 goals. They have managed 17 and currently lie 10thon the log with 21 points and also made it to the round of 16 of the Uganda cup.
Express have won three out of the last six games and only two of the last 11 games under Kisaala. Their last league goal coming over a month ago on January 3.
