Uganda tactician Alex Isabirye was recently appointed as the head coach for Somalian side Horseed FC after signing an employment contract of one year.

Having managed a series of clubs at home, the former URA tactician has embraced a fresh challenge away from home to coach in the war stricken horn of Africa country.

“I have not been with the players for so long but I have embarked on changing their mindset.”

“I know it is not going to be a walk over as I am yet to know how other clubs are playing but I believe I have the capacity of helping my side compete in the CAF Confederation Cup.”

At Horseed he has handled two games winning 4-2 and 1-0 against Horseed and Jeenyo respectively in the General Daud Cup 2020.
