ALEX Isabirye will this week be unveiled as the new head coach for Jinja-based side Bul-BIDCO.
The tactician left Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) by mutual consent after the just concluded 2014/15 Uganda Premier League season.
“The club greatly appreciates the contribution of Coach Alex. He will forever be appreciated for delivering us the Uganda Cup success in 2013 but the board has opted to end the relationship,” URA’s secretary, Henry Mayeku
After an average season that saw the tax collectors finish 4th in the domestic league, got eliminated at the quarterfinal stage of the Uganda Cup and dumped out of the CAF Confederations cup at the first round by South African giants Orlando Pirates.
Isabirye bid farewell to the players and officials after the team’s 2-1 victory against Express FC at Wankulukuku on Tuesday.
“We agreed with URA management that I leave at the end of this season and yes I have had meetings with Bul FC officials and I hope by the end of this week everything should be done,” Isabirye confirmed to www.eagle.co.ug.
Isabirye’s last achievement at URA FC was the 2013 Uganda Cup trophy where he beat then Bunamwaya SC (now Vipers SC) in penalty shootouts in the final held in Masindi.
URA target Nsimbe or Kisala
www.eagle.co.ug has learnt; URA has sought the services of former KCC and former Azam tactician George Nsimbe and Uganda’s Under-20 and former Bul FC coach Kefa Kisala.
