Vipers Sports Club have made a number of significant changes to their backroom coaching staff, with Paul Kiwanuka and Francis Mugerwa taking up assistant coaching roles.
Kiwanuka previously in charge of topflight side Bright Stars FC will assume the role of Kajoba’s right-hand man looking to draw upon the experience garnered during the time when the pair worked seamlessly together at the Mwererwe-based club
” Im 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,” reads a statement from Kiwanuka on his club’s website.
Meanwhile Francis Mugerwa joins the Venoms as the second assistant head coach from Maroons FC where he worked under Douglas Bamweyana after previous stints at Onduparaka and Bright Stars.
” Iam 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,” said Mugerwa on his club’s website.
“I am delighted to have this talented group of coaches alongside me. They bring a great mix of experience and fresh thinking,” Kajoba said.
Vipers were crowned champions of 2019/20 after FUFA canceled off the league due to covid-19 pandemic and will nation in the Caf Champions League.
