Kisala was suspended on Wednesday by the club management for three games over inconsistent results in the league and knock out tournament.

The former Uganda Cranes gifted left winger has consequently missed the club’s training sessions but maintains the top boss at the club will resolve the matter amicably.

“The club chairman (Silver Aliasi) informed me of my suspension but the top boss at the company (BIDCO Uganda Limited), Gosh Suvrajit was the one to have the last say after a meeting” Kisala notified.

Aliasi confirmed to Kawowo Sports that the coach is not yet officially out of the club until the Monday meeting;

We are still waiting for that Monday meeting. There is a big possibility he may not be with us. But, let us wait and see the outcome

Kawowo Sports has learnt that Kisala’s root cause to his current woes are way beyond the club performance in the league and in the knock out tournament where they fell 2-1 to lowly fourth division side, Kampala Junior Team (KJT) during the round of 16 Uganda Cup duel.

Aspects of a troubled dressing room, disrespect from the coach towards towards the club managerial committee of CEO Salmin Saleh, Aliasi and team manager Dauda Were were also cited.

“Some players had become untouchable and the coach himself had gone over board. Onetime, he answered arrogantly through a wars up communication to the bosses” one of the senior officials at the club who asked not to be named for fear of sabotage remarked.

Kisala was serving his second stint at the club following the earlier fall out in 2015.

After 22 matches, BUL sits in the eight position on the 16 team log with 28 points.
