KITENDE – Vipers SC have on Tuesday, July 21 unveiled their technical team for the upcoming season.
Joining head coach Fred Kajoba is two former assistants in Paul Kiwanuka and Francis Mugerwa.
The two have formally worked as assistants to Kajoba and it is understandable as to why the gaffer was eager to bring them on board.
Kiwanuka who was previously in charge of Bright Stars FC will assume the role of Kajoba’s assistant looking to draw upon the experience garnered during the time when the pair worked seamlessly together at the Mwererwe-based club.
Mugerwa joins from Maroons FC where he worked under Douglas Bamweyana.
He has also previously had stints at Onduparaka and Bright Stars FC where he interestingly teamed up with both Kajoba and Kiwanuka at different intervals.
What they said on Tuesday
“I am a man of few words who prefers doing the talking on the pitch but l feel proud and honoured to reunite and work closely with the two coaches plus the other staff at Vipers.”
“I am excited to be joining Vipers and for the chance to work with Kajoba again. It is an opportunity I couldn’t let up. I would like to thank Vipers management for giving me this chance and l know that our skills and experience will complement each other as we work to develop an exciting new team.”
“I am delighted to have this talented group of coaches alongside me. They bring a great mix of experience and fresh thinking.”
This development completes Vipers coaching staff with; Goalkeeping Coach Ibrahim Mugisha, Fitness Trainer Edward Ssali, Physical & Conditioning coach Ram Nyakana Mpuga, Gym Instructor Ibrahim Kato and Physiotherapist Mathius Kassagga winding up the technical department.
Vipers have also recently beefed up their playing staff with the signings of Disan Galiwango, Ibrahim Orit and Jamil Kalisa.
