Tooro United head coach Wasswa Bbosa has emerged as the fore runner to take over at Vipers Sports Club.
This follows the sacking of former head coach Micheal Nam Ouma plus his entire coaching staff including coach Moses Golola and goalkeeping coach Moses Oloya.
“Vipers Sports Club would like to announce that coach Michael Nam Ouma has left the club. The Club has also dissolved the technical department with immediate effect,” read part of the statement issued by the club.
Ouma was in charge of the Venoms for just 203 days and 24 games after replacing Mexican Javier Martinez Espinoza on December 30, 2018.
Espinoza was sacked after four months in charge.
During his stint at St. Marys’s, Ouma picked up just 11 wins, eight draws and five losses in all competitions as he guided the club to a second-place finish in the league, seven points behind winners KCCA.
Now according to a source at Vipers, the club has been linked to Bbosa since the end of the season after he guided Tooro United to a fourth-place. However, the rumours seemed to have cooled down after he agreed a two-year renewal of his employment contract last month.
But fresh reports indicate that the Venoms are set on doing anything to get the former SC Villa and Express tactician to Kitende.
Despite Bbosa being the preferred choice, it is also understood that a number of other high-profile names have been mentioned in the corridors at St. Mary’s stadium with the club rumoured to be long term admirers of KCCA head coach Mike Mutebi and wanted to sway him away from Lugogo after Espinoza was sacked.
Uganda Cranes interim head coach Abdallah Mubiru has also been mentioned as a strong candidate for a return to the club after his brief stint with them in 2015.
Further-more, a yet to be named foreign coach has also been approached for the job as the club continues to hunt for a new head coach before the start of the season.
Vipers will for the third consecutive time begin a new season with a new coach at the helm of the club.
