The old school adage; ‘When one door closes, there is another bound to open’ is indeed a reality in the face of CAF ‘A’ certified coach, Shafiq Bisaso.

Back in the days, when Bisaso was deemed as excess baggage at Proline Soccer Academy, he was recruited at Singo Ssaza before crossing to Busujju.

His previous tenure at Nakivubo Boys led him to Fire Masters, KJT Rwenshama, Proline then to the  FUFA Big League side, Masavu.

From Masavu as new doors were opened at Uganda’s most successful football club, Sports Club Villa Jogoo to work under Deo Sserwadda as assistant coach before he took over as head coach coach when Sserwadda left.

Tough talking SC Villa president Ben Immanuel Misagga then terminated Bisaso’s employment contract before Soana, Sadolin Paints and Uganda Martyrs’ University, Nkozi came fighting for his signature.

As you assimilate the afore-mentioned, Bisaso is now technical director at Uganda Martyrs’ University Nkozi.

Bisaso believes the best is yet to come for him as he plots to return to the elite league sooner than later.

I am happy to work at Uganda Martyrs’ University, Nkozi as Technical Director.

My line of duty is to help set good programmes at the University in the technical department and see that the institution produces good talents.

Given my experience and experience,  I am more than ready to execute the work at hand.

Bisaso’s side played two warm up games on International Women’s Day, losing one in the morning to Super Cubs in Natete before fighting for a point in the 2-2 draw with Masavu at Katabi.

Julius Ssenkali notched a brace for the students as Masavu fought from behind to make amends.

Former Express, SC Villa and Baza Holdings defender Lawrence Bakiranze scored right from a corner kick before midfielder Solomon Wafula saved Masavu from blushes of an eminent loss at their own grave yard.

Uganda Martyrs’ University, Nkozi is preparing for the 2017 University Football League season.
