Former Coach Set For Express Return
Wasswa Charles Bossa is set to take over the reins at StarTimes Premier League side, Express FC.
Wasswa Charles Bossa is set to take over the reins at StarTimes Premier League side, Express FC, after the club reportedly decided on Monday to sack George Ssemogerere, say reports in the Ugandan press.
Express chairman Kiwanuka Kiryowa has reportedly met with the board and resolved to dismiss Ssemogerere, with Bossa set to be his replacement, three years after he was shown the door.
Bossa could take training as early as Wednesday and be in charge for the Red Eagles’ StarTimes Premier League game away to Onduparaka on Friday.
His priority will be to steer Express from the relegation zone after a turbulent fortnight that has seen them lose to fierce rivals SC Villa and Mbarara City.
Bossa turned for Express as a player in the late 90s and early 2000s together with the senior national football team, the Cranes.
He previously coached the Red Eagles for one and half seasons, leading them to a third-place finish in the 2016/2017 season and also into the semis of the Stanbic Uganda Cup.
Frank Ssenyondo was one of the few not to see eye-to-eye with the coach whose future will become even more uncertain, should Bossa’s appointment be confirmed.
Bossa last coached Tooro United and guided the team to fourth place and in previous stints with SC Villa and Express, the teams always gave the champions a run for their money.
