Uganda Premier League side Mbarara City Football Club has appointed former Arua Hill Sports Club tactician Hussein Mbalangu as their caretaker coach.
“Hussein Mbalangu will be the Care Taker manager for the mean time until the club management decides on who to be the head coach, reads a statement on the club’s social media accounts,” read Mbarara City statement on Tuesday.
The Lions of Ankole had previously trusted Kefa Kisala in the position but the former Wakiso Giants and Express gaffer threw in the towel citing poor working conditions and lack of motivation.
Mbalangu will henceforth fill the vacant position on an interim basis as the club management intensifies the search for the perfect candidate.
He helped Arua Hill SC gain promotion to the top flight as 2019/2020 FUFA Big League season champions having defeated Gaddafi FC in the finals played at the FUFA Technical Center in Njeru.
The former Kyaggwe Ssaza team coach however, fell out with his former bosses at the “Kongolo,” citing breach of the club’s code of conduct in replacing him with Charles Livingston Mbabazi.
Last season, Mbarara City finished 7th on the UPL table standings with 38 points after 27 games played.
