Alex Isabirye has thrown in the towel as Kirinya-Jinja S.S head coach

Alex Isabirye has resigned as Kirinya – Jinja Secondary Senior Secondary football club head coach.

Isabirye who was named head coach for the league debutants at the start of the 2016/17 season loses the job barely 24 hours after Abdallah Mubiru, George Nsiimbe and John ‘Ayalla’ Luyinda were sacked at Vipers Sports Club.

In an exclusive interview with Kawowo Sports on Monday, the former Uganda Cranes international attributed his resignation to sheer ‘bad omen’.

Sincerely, I have to let this job go.

I think I do not have the good luck at the club.

We are the most attack minded in the whole league but we do not score.

We have managed just four goals from the hundreds of chances created.

Isabirye, who is rumored for the Soana head coach job in January 2017 (after Sam Ssimbwa leaves for Sofapaka) was absent from the team’s Sunday training held at the FUFA Technical center in Njeru.

He only passed by on Monday during the last training session.

 I have not yet spoken to the club director (Diana Nyago) but I have made the decision.

Let me watch from the sidelines.

Isabirye also resigned at another Jinja club, BUL towards the start of the season before he signed for Kirinya-Jinja S.S on a two year agreement.

The school managed side travels to Kampala for a date against Proline at the Phillip Omondi astro turf in Lugogo.

Abbey ‘Capello’ Kikomeko who guided the side from the FUFA Big league and has been deputy to Isabirye will be on the sidelines at Lugogo.

They have not won a league game since being promoted to the top flight league but have picked up the most draws (9) alongside Uganda Revenue Authority and Proline football clubs.

His resignation brings to two the number of such cases after Police’s Sam Timbe threw in the towel this very season.

Also, another coach in the second tier league, Christian G. Magoba relinquished his duties at Entebbe Football Club.

David Isabirye is a senior staff writer for Kawowo Sports where he covers most of the major events.
