Newly promoted Uganda Premier League side Wakiso Giants are in search of a new coach.
This after news that club, famously known as Purple Sharks, had parted ways with coach Ibrahim Kirya.
Kirya signed a one year contract with the squad and was tasked to guide the team to promotion from the Big League, a feat he subsequently achieved.
But the club have decided on not renewing his contract together with the members of his technical team.
“Ibrahim Kirya has left his role as head coach of the club after his one year comtract expired. We would like to thank Kirya for the work done for the club over the past 12 months. Kirya and his technical staff will be etched in the history books of this great club forever,” read a statement from the club
WHAT NEXT FOR WAKISO GIANTS.
The Purple Sharks have been previously linked to a number of coaches with Police FC coach Abdallah Mubiru top of the list given his close ties with Wakiso directors.
However, news coming in indicate that Mubiru who is taking charge of the Cranes at the Cosafa tournament could not be the man to take over at the club but rather his assistant at the tournament Charles Livingston Mbabazi.
Watchdog Uganda understands that Mbabazi has already tendered in his resignation letter to Mbarara City as he makes it clear he will not be staying at the club.
Mbabazi earlier indicated that he will be leaving his role as Mbarara city head coach after a section of fans attacked him for match fixing after his side’s 2-1 home loss to Onduparaka despite the club lying third by then.
Despite being linked to a number of other jobs like Sc Villa, Kyetume and an unamed club in Tanzania, it is understood that Mbabazi and his representatives have been involved in a number of meetings behind closed doors over a possible move to the side.
