Uganda Cranes legendary striker and captain Geofrey Massa as well as Richards Kansole have beefed up Police Football Club technical staff.

Both Massa and Kansole will be among the assistants to head coach Abdallah Mubiru.

The development was confirmed by the Police Football Club chairperson, Asan Kasingye.

Glad that Geoffrey Massa will join the coaching team for Police Football Club. Welcome on board legends

Asan Kasingye, Police Football Club Chairman

A decent and diligent servant for Uganda Cranes and Police Football Club, Massa returns to the team with whom he won the national league honours in 2005.

He will be a trainer as Kansole takes over the vacant goalkeeping trainer’s role since the departure of another Uganda Cranes player James Magala to Express Football Club.

Magala was last week announced among the three coaches at the Red Eagles alongside George Ssemwogerere (head coach) and Hassan Mubiru (trainer).

Massa’s experience and expertise as a proven center forward will be very instrumental to the club especially in the offensive department.

The clean shaven former forward has of late enjoyed a fruitful professional stint in Cyprus since announcing his retirement from national team service two years ago.

He knocks onto new doors of coaching in a career where former players have flourished.

For Kansole, he will head the demanding goalkeeping department at Police FC and is expected to seek quick solutions to the leaking defence. The rate at which the club concedes goals is worrying having let in 30 goals in 17 matches, the worst record jointly shared by relegation candidates Nyamityobora Football Club.

Kansole formerly worked at Nyamitybora Football Club as goalkeeping trainer before he was deemed as excess baggage following managerial amendments.

The Cops host Ndejje University this Saturday at the StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo.
