South Sudanese side El-Merreikh Juba have appointed former Onduparaka Football club head coach Leo Adraa Erima on a one year deal with an option for further extension.
The veteran tactician will take up his new position with the South Sudan giants with immediate effect following an agreement for personal terms between the two parties.
His time with the Caterpillars helped shape his resùme as one of the best football coaches in the region with his legacy both in the Ugandan Premier League and on the continent a rich and sound one.
The decision to join El-Merreikh could be viewed as a homecoming since he refers to South Sudan as home away from home. His first stint in the South Sudanese league was with Altabara FC back in 2005.
Following his departure from Onduparaka FC, Adraa has been a technical and Sporting director at fellow West Nile side Paidha Black Angels until the time of this appointment.
