Express FC are set to confirm Wasswa Bbosa as their permanent head coach on a two year employment contract.
Bbosa has overseen a dramatic transformation in Express FC’s fortunes since taking temporary charge, following George Ssimwogerere’s sacking in February.
The club is to reward him for his work over the past three and half months by handling him the job on a full-time basis.
Swift Sports understands that, the club’s performance under the stewardship of Bbosa persuaded the board that he was the right man to take them forward.
James Odoch, Bbosa’s assistant and goalkeeping coach Sam Kawalya are also expected to stay.
Bbosa guided the Wankulukuku outfit from the jaws of relegation as the finished ninth with 31 points when FUFA decided to end the league after 25 games due to the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
He won three games, lost one and drew once in the five league matches he was temporarily in charge. His side was also eliminated by Maroons FC 4-3 on penalties after a 3-3 stalemate in the round of 32 of the Stanbic Uganda Cup.
The tactician also restored confidence and feel good factor at the club as well as helping players who were stagnating under Ssimwogerere in a short space of time he has been in charge.
The CAF “B” licensed coach has previously managed at Express, SC Villa before he joined Tooro United formerly known as Soana FC at the start of the 2018/19 season.
