Abdallah Mubiru wants to compete for league title after signing new contract at Police FC

Police Football Club have rewarded their head coach Abdallah Mubiru with a new three-year contract.

Mubiru’s contract expired early this year but signed a renewal with the Cops on Friday,

” I thank God for this opportunity given to me. My aim is to stay at a club and stabilize myself there. I thank my club chairman Mr. Kasingye for trusting me.” Mubiru said in a phone call interview with Star FM 87.5 Radio.

Mubiru admitted that his charges have been struggling but hopes to turn things around in a twist that can see them compete for the title,

” Signing a new contract comes with a big challenge because we have been struggling to get results. However, we have been successful in a way that we have brought players from the third tier and now teams like KCCA want to sign them up and boast their squads.”

He said,

” I want us to strive to ensure stability at the club since it’s the only way we can compete like the other teams. Stability in form of consistently getting results on the pitch as well as playing well.”

” We want us to compete for the title because we’ve once attempted to do so. One and half years ago we spent almost the entire first round on top of the table but unfortunately, we lost players like Hood Kaweesa, Gift Ali, Ssaka Mpiima and Yasin Mugume and thereafter retarded to finish seventh at the end of the season.”

“I believe we can compete favorably,” He concluded.

The Uganda Cranes assistant coach joined the Cops in December 2016 replacing Angelo Lonyesi who had temporarily taken over following Sam Timbe’s departure.

Last season, Mubiru guided Police to premier league safety after finishing 13th with 25 points, one above the drop zone.
