Am A Free Agent – Rwanda-Bound Ssimbwa

and geneva;”>Top Rwanda Primus National League side, Police FC, who finished second this season are about to conclude a deal Ssimbwa, who won the Ugandan League with Express FC in the 2011/2012 season before joining SC Victoria and parting ways four months ago.

“Am a free agent because I did not sign any binding contract with Express,” Ssimbwa told ChimpReports. “I am tasked with preparing my boys (Express FC) for the upcoming Cecafa Club Championship, so do not think I will be stopped from going to coach in Rwanda.”

A source in Kigali told ChimpReports that officials of Police FC had travelled to Kampala and discussed terms with Ssimbwa and is expected to replace Goran Kopunovic

The coach also confirmed that he had held talks with the Rwandan side, but dismissed reports that he had signed.

“There is no way I can sign a deal and tell you otherwise. I have not yet signed, but there are a few things I want them to do before I put pen to paper,” said Ssimbwa, who also coached Atraco FC in the Rwandan League in 2006.

The Serbian has failed to win any silverware for the club. Kopunovic’s contract ends on 1 July and will not be renewed.

When asked about his chances of signing for Police, Ssimbwa said they were high, but added that in football things happen so quickly that he could instead sign for another team.


Ssimbwa is one of the most experienced coaches in the region who has only won one league title with Express FC in 2011/12.

He has however won two Uganda Cup trophies with Mbale Heroes (2009) and Express FC (2007).

He also handled the Somalia national team during the 2012 Cecafa Tusker Senior Challenge Cup in Kampala.
