Over the weekend, different media reported that FUFA Women Super League side, Kampala Queens Women FC head coach Faridah Bulega had resigned from her position at the club.
It’s rumored that Bulega is not in good terms with the club’s Chief Executive Committee, Ivan Otim, a rift that led to resignation.
However, the Uganda Women National Team tactician has come out to clarify to ChimpReports and distance self from the media rants.
“I have also seen the rumors in the news that I’m no longer at the team but I am still the head coach at Kampala Queens Women Football Club and I have not resigned and not planning to resign. Perhaps, I have not heard anything from the club management,” Bulega told this website.
“However, I am ready for whatever decision comes. In coaching training, they train us to be ready for anything that comes by. Besides, this is not my club, I am only a worker and a passionate loyal fan since its founding. I will respect whichever decision taken but I also vow to remain a loyal fan,” she added.
The club, through it’s official social media platform has also refuted the said “baseless rumors.”
“By the hit of Sunday afternoon different media platforms were awashed with information of resignation of Kampala Queens Head coach Ms.Faridah Bulega. We do not know the intentions of such alarming news….”
“We are here to assure our stakeholders that Kampala Queens is in order. Therefore we call upon calmness from the football family and our stakeholders. The allegations are lies being laid to tarnish the name of the club and of the coach,” the club statement read.
Bulega, a CAF C Licensed gaffer has been coaching Kampala Queens since 2017, a side he joined from Asubo Gafford Ladies Women Football Club.
The former Buikwe Red Stars player also coached Wakiso United (now Mbarara City FC) and handled Musu clan during last year’s Bika Bya Baganda football tournament.
She was voted the 2015 coach of the year during the annual Airtel FUFA Awards.
Kampala Queens is owned by the FUFA president Eng Moses Magogo who doubles as the CAF Executive Committee member.
