Uganda Premier League side Police Football Club has terminated employment contracts of their head coach Abdallah Mubiru alongside his entire coaching staff.

The sad development arrives barely 24 hours after a humiliating 5-0 loss to Onduparaka F.C at Mandela National Stadium.

The news confirming the sacking of Mubiru and his support staff came as the club conducted the recovery session on Saturday following the embarrassing loss, arguably the heaviest defeat to the club in the recent past.

“We were stopped from training mid way the session on Saturday after a sudden call from one of the high ranking club managers. It was embarrassing,” a club official who preferred anonymity confirmed to Kawowo Sports.

The affected support staff to Mubiru include former Uganda Cranes goalkeeper James Magala (goalkeeping coach) and assistant coach John “Ayala” Luyinda.

Police FC Chief Executive Officer, Kidega could neither confirm nor deny the development when contacted.

Mubiru joined the footballing Cops a season ago from Vipers after he was sacked along with George ‘Best’ Nsiimbe.

The former Dairy and KCC player who also played for the Uganda Cranes has also previously coached at KCCA, Proline, Kibuli S.S, Mawogola and Ssingo Ssaza teams in the Buganda Masaza Cup.

Winners of the Uganda Premier League in 2005, Police had of late depreciated in form after a stellar performance in the first round.

After 26 matches, Police is currently 8th with 32 points.
