Abdallah Mubiru and Livingstone Mbabazi have been officially announced as the assistants to head coach Johnathan McKinstry, Kawowo Sports confirmed.
The duo was confirmed on Wednesday during a press conference in which McKinstry named his squad ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Burkina Faso and Malawi respectively.
Acting Fufa president Justus Mugisha revealed the development shortly after the squad was announced.
“According to the time frame and the activities, we have decided to come up with the options for the Cranes backroom staff but they will be working on an interim basis for now,” said Mugisha.
Kawowo Sports further revealed that the interim has been set for approximately six months and the acting Fufa president explained the reason why.
“The essence behind the appointment of the duo on the interim is to make sure the coach can evaluate them and before we make the final choice.
