Mbale Heroes Fire Coach After Four Matches

The management of Mbale Heroes FC has officially terminated the contract of head coach Bobic Odowa and his entire coaching staff.

Odowa, Express FC and Mbale FC former player, rejoined the club in November as an assistant coach to Scottish international Stephen Pritchard who were unveiled on the same day.

He later replaced the Scottish man who went AWOL before Christmas!

Odowa and his team have been winless in their opening three FUFA Big league matches before losing the first leg of Stanbic Uganda Cup round of 32 on Tuesday to Gadafi FC, the same opponent who defeated them in their opening tie of Big league.

According to the club statement, the results obtained recently, have not matched the Club’s expectations leaving the club with no perfect decision.

The Press release seen by The-SportsNation reads in part;

“We are grateful to Bobic Odowa and his coaching Staff for what they have achieved in their time with Mbale Heroes FC.

“However, recent results and performance have not met the club’s expectations, leaving the club without any clear path to sustained improvement.

“There can never be a good time to part ways with the club’s legend such as Bobic, but after lengthy deliberation and consideration it was decided a change is needed now to give the club time to improve performance and results this season.”

The club is expected to name a new coach and his assistants in due course.

Mbale Heroes who are set for the return leg of Stanbic Uganda Cup round of 32 on Sunday April 11, are in red zone of Elgon group of FUFA Big league in 7th place with 2 points from three games.
