Miguel Da Costa

Sports Club Vipers has today announced that it has parted ways with Portuguese manager Miguel Jorge Da Costa, after just one season in charge.

Vipers appointed Da Costa as the head coach in March 2017 and guided The Venoms to the 2017/18 Uganda Premier League title and runners-up in the Stanbic Uganda Cup.

In a statement, the club thanked and wished Da Costa all the best of luck in his future endeavors.

The statement read;

“The Vipers SC management has today, the 17th July 2018 relieved its head coach Miguel Jorge Da Costa of his duties.

This is part of Vipers restructuring process and preparation for the CAF club competitions and upcoming Uganda Premier League season.

Vipers SC would like to thank Coach Da Costa for his commitment and service to the club and wishes him success in his career advancement going forward.

“A new coach will be announced soon… We remain One team, One dream.”

Da Costa managed Vipers in the 2018 CECAFA Kagame cup in Dar es salaam, Tanzania and lost to Gor Mahia 2-1 in the quarter-finals, in what has been his last game in charge.

The assistant head coach Edward Golola is expected to act as the interim until a new manager will be announced.
