URA FC has appointed former captain Simeon Masaba to their senior team coaching staff. The former skipper at the club made a quick u-turn to Wakiso giants where he had earlier been announced in a similar capacity.
Masaba had a chance to join Arua Hill FC after leaving Onduparaka but declined the opportunity for fear of stroking fires of enmity between the West Nile clubs.
The tax collectors are understood to have concluded talks with Masaba to join Hamza Lutalo and Augustine Nsumba at the club as assistants.
Furthermore, the former skipper retired at the end of the 2015/16 season was first drafted in the coaching team at URA with Livingstone Mbabazi before the pair switched to the West Nile’s Onduparaka team.
Earlier on in August he had joined newly promoted army side UPDF but changed his mind soon after Steven Bogere was replaced with Kefa Kisala. Then Douglas Bamweyana handpicked him at Wakiso Giants him last month.
Masaba said it is an exciting opportunity to work with the team that gave him an opportunity to excel as a coach. He was a key pillar at URA between 2010 and 2016.
URA‘s move seemed more appealing to Masaba especially after the club recruited exciting talent including goalkeeper Hannington Sebwalunyo, Jackson Nunda, David Ssali and Arafat Galiwango in an attempt to challenge for the league title.
In addition to that URA were last crowned winners of Uganda in 2014 and they have so far won it twice that is in 2012 and 2014.
