Chris McGinn: Former Arsenal Coach Eyeing Uganda Cranes Job, Again

English coach and former player Chris McGinn is in line for Uganda Cranes vacant job for a fourth attempt.

Renown Italian Journalist Fabrizio Romano who has broken some of the biggest transfer deals, has confirmed that FUFA has been in touch with McGinn.

He has knocked at FUFA’s door in recent past but the Federation has handed contracts to Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredejovich, Sebastien Desabre and Jonathan Mckinstry in that order.

McGinn has notably worked at English Premier League giants Arsenal both as a Youth and Strikers coach for a period that spanned 10 years.

Then, he worked with experienced players like Dennis Bergkamp and Tonny Adams as the club produced youngsters like Cesc Fabregas and Jack Wilshere among others.

He has also been at Chelsea, Fulham, QPR, Sheffield Wednesday, Carshalton Athletic, South Park among others.

The 59-year old, born in Devon England, is the founder of CM coaching Solutions and his playing career saw him play at Nottingham Forest, Bristol City and Plymouth Argyle per internet records.

The Cranes job is vacant since the Federation parted ways with Northern Irishman Johnathan Mckinstry in April this year.

The team has since been under the stewardship of Abdallah Mubiru and Livingston Mbabazi as FUFA contemplates on naming a new coach.

The Federation is racing against time to have a new coach in place before the start of the World Cup Qualifiers later in September.
