Shafiq Bisaso has stepped aside as the Proline FC head coach for further coaching studies, the club confirmed.
“This is to inform the public that our team manager Bisaso Shafiq will be leaving the country for further studies to upgrade his coaching level. This is a program that was arranged for him and funded by the club a few months ago but has come to fruit now.” Reads part of the statement.
The statement cites the main reason to Bisaso’s unexpected departure is that he is headed for a year-long football coaching study stint in Sweden.
“We are very grateful and thank Shafik unreservedly for his tireless efforts in the past one year that have seen among others. Proline emerged as Big League and Uganda Cup champions, participate in our maiden CECAFA tournament and successfully navigate our first leg of the CAF Confederation competition under his stewardship.
“We shall be communicating about our immediate changes in our technical setup very soon. We wish Bisaso Shafiq the best in his studies and look forward to reuniting with us.”
Bisaso guided Proline to a domestic double, winning the FUFA Big League and the Stanbic Uganda Cup to earn a ticket to play at the CAF Confederation cup.
In their first game on the continent, Proline swept aside Malawi’s Masters’ Security 3-0 at the Star Times Stadium, Lugogo.
The former Express tactician and Ssingo Ssaza team head coach will have his coaching course at Swedish club Skelletea FF for a period of one year and expected to return to his role after the studies.
