Preview: Alex Isabirye Eyes Vipers Revenge

Alex Isabirye is poised to confront his former team as Express hosts Vipers in an upcoming league match at Wankulukuku.

Isabirye, instrumental in Vipers’ previous league and Uganda Cup triumphs, departed the club amidst murky circumstances.

His resignation stemmed from a dispute with the club, citing contract breaches by Vipers, notably concerning the recruitment of Raoul Lukusa Kayembe (assistant coach) and Brazilian players Giancarlo Lopez and Luis ‘Tinga’ Otavio Santos, to which Isabirye claimed ignorance.

Express recently secured a 5-2 victory over NEC at Lugogo under Isabirye’s guidance, marking his inaugural win since taking over from James Odoch.

However, as Vipers arrive, they will be without head coach Leo Neiva, who was dismissed following the team’s 3-2 loss against BUL at Kitende.

Subsequently, Assistant Coach Kayembe has also departed, leaving Richard Wasswa in interim charge until a permanent replacement is appointed.

Currently positioned third in the league standings, Vipers trail leaders BUL by eight points.
