Three times Uganda Premier league winners, Vipers SC have parted ways with head coach Nam Ouma.

Ouma who has been with the club since December is understood to be leaving along with the entire coaching staff.

The development was confirmed by Vipers SC on Monday, 21st July-2019.

“Vipers Sports Club would like to announce that coach Michael Nam Ouma has left the club. Read a statement on the club’s official website.

“The Club has also dissolved the technical department with immediate effect.

“Vipers Sports Club would like to thank Ouma and the technical team for the services rendered to the club and we wish them the best going forward.

Ouma replaced Javier Martinez Espinosa after the Mexican tactician was deemed surplus to requirements at Kitende.

Martinez was fired in December 2018.

He becomes the third coach in just over a year that the Venoms have fired, having also parted ways with Miguel Da Costa at the end of the 2017/18 season.

In his tenure, Ouma has been in charge of 24 competitive games; 19 in the league, three in the Uganda Cup and two on the continent.

In the league, the Kenyan won 9 games, drawing 7 and losing just three as he led to Vipers to a second placed finished in the top flight.

In the Uganda Cup, he won two games before losing to Proline FC in the quarter finals as Vipers fell short in their title defence.

On the continent, he failed to win any of his two games, losing one and drawing the other.

It is apparent that the club was not happy following a below-per showing in the just concluded season and the decision to part ways with Ouma comes as no surprise to the football fraternity.

Ouma’s departure means that Vipers once again will start a new season with a new coach, the same scenario they have found themselves in in three of the past four years.
