LUGOGO – Proline FC’s new head coach Matia Lule has on Monday, August 19th, started executing his role.
Lule who was appointed on Sunday evening was fast unveiled to the media before undertaking his first training session with his new side.
The gaffer who replaces Shafiq Bisaso at the helm noted that he is not new to the club and couldn’t wait to get started.
“I am into football and this is my life. I have joined Proline purely due to footballing reasons, noted Lule after his unveiling.
“I have been out of the game for the last few months and very much want to get back into it so as I and Proline add something.
“There is a lot I think I can add to the team and very much know that it has a lot to also offer. All in all, I can’t wait to get started.”
Details of Lule’s contract have been withheld but reliable sources confirm he signed a two-year deal.
Also speaking at the unveiling, Proline FC CEO William Bakkabulindi noted that Lule was the best option for the club.
“We at Proline are happy that Matia (Lule) is now with us.
“He is not new to us because he has been helping us coaching in the academy.
“He is well experienced in the football industry and we are sure at this particular point in time, he is the best for us.”
Proline secured the League (Big League) and Cup double last season and also participated in the CECAFA Kagame Cup, for the first time in their history.
It will be an uphill task for Lule to replicate Bisaso’s success but the former Cranes assistant has bags of experience that can help push the team forward.
He has previously coached at Entebbe FC, KCCA FC, Express FC and Stand United of Tanzania.
Lule will be assisted by first-team coach Baker Mbowa and assistant coaches Luyima Richard and Goal Keeping Coach Swaibu Ssebagala.
His first task will be to ensure that Proline preserves their 3-0 lead against Malawi’s Master Securities in the CAF Confederations Cup.
