The Soft spoken tactician, Abdallah Mubiru has renewed his contract at Uganda Premier League side Police Football Club for more three years, ChimpReports can reveal.
This was confirmed by the Police FC’s head of communications on Friday evening.
Mubiru, who also serves as the Uganda Cranes assistant coach, joined Police in January 2016, helping the club survive relegation and maintain it’s top flight status.
The experienced gaffer whose contract with the Cops had expired in January this year, expressed his gratefulness upon putting pen to paper.
“I’m so happy and thankful to my boss and club Chairman Asan Kasingye for entrusting me with the club responsibilities for other three years. Signing a new contract with Police FC comes with a big challenge because we have been struggling to get results,” Mubiru told Star FM in an interview.
He added, “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. 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.”
The former Uganda Cranes midfielder joined Police as a replacement for Angelo Lonyesi who was serving on an interim basis.
Mubiru previously managed Proline and KCCA FC, grooming national team players like Paul Willa, Ben Ocen, Pius Kaggwa, Andrew Kigozi Samson among others.
Last season, he helped Police avoid relegation, finishing 13th on 25 points, one above relegated Maroons.
