Uganda Premier League side Mbarara City have appointed former Arua Hill SC head coach Hussein Mbalangu as the caretaker for the club.
The new developments were confirmed on Tuesday September 28th via the club’s social media accounts.
“Hussein Mbalangu will be the Care Taker manager for the mean time until the club management decides on who to be the head coach, reads a statement on the club’s social media accounts.”
Mbalangu’s appointment comes at a time when the club was in a bid to fill the vacant place, following Kefa Kisala’s disappearance from his role.
Of recent, it was reported that Kisala, who had been named as head coach for the Ankole Lions laid down tools at the club over reported disagreements.
The gaffer is reported to have left his new role,, citing poor working conditions at the club that include few match balls during training and the low motivation levels by the players due to lack of facilitation.
And now, with the days fast approaching to the new season, the club was left with no option rather than filling the vaccum left.
At the end of last season, Mbalangu fell out with his former bosses Arua Hill where he is said to have breached the club’s code of Conduct, and was replaced by former Mbarara City tactician Livingston Mbabazi.
In the just concluded transfer window, the Ankole Lions captured signatures of many players that include Okello Solomon, Kalule Frank, Kakaire Thomas, Otude Ivan Among others.
Last season, Mbarara City finished 7th on the UPL log with 38 points after 27 games played.
