Express FC has confirmed that Wasswa Bbosa will “permanently” assume the role of a head coach.
Bbosa replaced George Ssimwogerere on February 4, 2020 and was contracted to take the club until the end of 2019/20 season.
In a letter that confirmed the appointment of Isaac Mwesigwa as the new CEO, chairman Kiryowa Kiwanuka revealed that the side will stick will Bbosa.
“Concurrently, in principle, we have also agreed with Coach Wasswa Bossa to permanently assume the role of Head Coach. The new CEO shall finalize the details.
“I call upon all our fans to support both Isaac and Coach Bossa as they take on these roles.”
Bbosa will have a meeting with new CEO Mwesigwa to finalise the deal which is expected to keep the gaffer for the next two seasons at Wankulukuku.
This is Bbosa’s second stint at Express as a coach: He was at the helm before being sacked in November 2016.
In the 2019/20 season, he beat Onduparaka FC in Arua in his first game thanks to Frank Ssenyondo’s lone strike. He lost two games, including a Uganda Cup knockout, via penalties, against Maroons FC.
Bbosa’s immediate task will be to assemble a highly competitive squad before the new season kicks off, presumably in August.
