Express struggles in aligning Coaching staff As CAF Champions League approaches

“I am happy about this achievement and I am also looking forward to upgrading to CAF A soon,” said the then SC Villa coach Wasswa Bbosa in June 2017 after he attained a CAF B license when he completed a CAF coaching course in Njeru.

Four years later, Bbosa, a league title winning coach with Express FC, has not upgraded his coaching credentials.

The league title he has won with Express means that the club will represent the country in the 2021/22 CAF Champions League.

However, the gaffer does not hold the appropriate coaching license to be the head coach in a CAF Champions League match.

Last year in December, CAF raised its standards for a coach to be admitted to the club’s bench.

All head coaches of clubs engaged in CAF Champions League and CAF Confederation Cup must have the “CAF A” coaching license.

Express are in race against time to ensure that they have a head coach that complies with these licensing requirements.

However, Express FC Chairman Kiryowa Kiwanuka sounded less bothered during an interview recently.

“I am not after papers, I have trust in Wasswa Bbosa. He may not have the papers but his actions have proved that he is a top level coach,” Kiryowa told Bukedde FM earlier this week.

“I am not going on the continent without Wasswa Bbosa. I don’t change the winning formula.”

Granted, Bbosa and his entire coaching staff are out of contract at Wankulukuku as we speak.

The deadline for registration on the CAF CMS is August 15, 2021 while the CAF Interclub Competitions will kickoff in September with first round preliminaries.
