Express FC: Bbosa Defends Decision To Axe Players

Express FC coach Wasswa Bbosa says that he wants to have a strong team that will compete for titles next season.

The Red Eagles have on Thursday released 18 players to make room for possible new additions.

Bbosa, while appearing on Sanyuka TV on Thursday, said that Express FC lacked quality in depth.

“We had about 32 players and you could fail to select the starting 11,” Bbosa told Sanyuka’s Martin Kaddu and Pius. “I am not saying that they were bad players but the truth is that they are not good enough to fit in our targets of winning a trophy next season.”

“We need players that meet our requirements. How can you compete when you are Express and you cannot have a player on the national team, at least on a CHAN or Cecafa team.”

Bbosa is expected to bring players at Express FC, especially those he has worked with before at other clubs.

“This happens world over, every coach has those players he is comfortable working with and am not different. I have my philosophy and I know the type of players I want.

“We may not bring big names say from Vipers or KCCA, because you can pick a player from a lower club and he will give you what you want.

“I have been very active in football ever since I retired from playing and I know and have followed the players in Uganda.”
