Basena new assistant to Micho

Old alliance, Micho and Basena

Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Moses Basena has been re-appointed assistant coach of the Uganda Cranes.

The appointment was confirmed in a statement released by the Federation of Uganda Football Association-FUFA. FUFA noted that earlier selected assistant coach Livingstone Mbabazi had opted to remain at his club, Arua Hill.

The newly appointed Cranes Coach Milutin Sredojevic ‘Micho’ justified the appointment of Basena saying that he wanted to pattern with a coach who is not attached to any club. Before leaving Uganda, Micho was deputized by Basena.

The new FUFA requirement also left out Abdallah Mubiru who has been interim coach when FUFA sacked Johnathan McKinstry.  Mubiru is the head coach of Police FC.

It should also be recalled that goalkeeping coach Fred Kajoba recently resigned from his job as Vipers head coach to concentrate on his new role at the Cranes.

Uganda is set to play three international friendly games against Syria and Ethiopia as they build up for their forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against Kenya and Mali. Micho has summoned a provisional squad of 30 players on Monday.
