Bunnamwaya appoints Nigerian coach

Bunnamwaya appoints Nigerian coach

Nigerian Ambrose Chimuka was yesterday officially introduced to Bunnamwaya’s Buikwe Grounds, a day before Moses Basena also starts work officially as Express coach.

Chimuka replaces Edward Golola, who has served the club for three seasons while Basena, who was seen out by Tanzania’s Simba late last year swaps with Sam Ssimbwa, who has since joined newly promoted Victoria University.

Golola, who succeeded Jackson Mayana, steps down with his head high after leading the club to their only silverware, a league title in 2010.

"I turned the club into a powerhouse," said Golola.

"Previous coaches were not able to achieve what I did in my maiden season (2009/10).

"Winning the league was my highest moment as a coach at Bunnamwaya; the memories are still fresh in my mind."

Golola also paid tribute to his players who handed him the title.

"There is no way I can fail to credit the players who were able to listen and respect me. They made me a good coach," he added.

He steps down with his entire backroom staff that includes deputies, Richard Waswa, Ronald Ssali and goal keeping coach Edris ’Ruphai’ kasozi. Team physio John Sekumba stays on.

Golola will now concentrate on coaching St Mary’s Kitende SS and, although he admits little knowledge about Chimuka, he believes the Nigerian will be a success.

"If he (Chimuka) can handle the players professionally am sure we will perform exceedingly," he counseled, adding, "The players must respect him like they did when I was with them."

Chimuka penned a two-year deal with Bunnamwaya in a move that was coordinated by German based agent Nasser Mulindwa.

Meanwhile, Basena starts official duty with Express after agreeing in principle with the Red Eagles.

By the time of going to press the former URA coach had not yet penned his deal as they were still discussing other personal terms regarding the duration of his contract.

"Between now and Tuesday we should have concluded everything," Basena said.

It is said Express want to tie him on a three-year contract but Basena is still hesitant on the period, preferring two years. Basena joins the Wankulukuku side after Ssimbwa helped them to their first league title in 16 years. He will not be judged on nothing less.
