It is official! Alex ‘Trezeguet’ Musongola Isabirye has dumped FUFA Big League outfit Kyetume FC for top tier side Nyamityobora.

The former Uganda Cranes international resigned his job at Kyetume moments after guiding them to the Stanbic Uganda Cup quarter-finals, following a 1-0 away win over Kitara at Kigaya on Sunday.

Nyamityobora who last week lost head coach Asaph Mwebaze has now named Isabirye as the replacement.

Isabirye, though, comes in the capacity of technical director according to a club statement;

We announce the arrival of Alex Isabirye as technical director. He signed a three-year employment contract.

Restoring the sanity in the dressing room will be Isabirye’s primary task, something that the CAF ”A” tactician is capable of.

He is expected to work alongside Juma Ssekiziyivu who has been the interim trainer since Mwebaze’s untimely departure.

Isabirye faces a stern test, given the worrying form of the Abanyakare, having managed just three wins in 19 matches with 3 draws and 13 losses registered.

Isabirye returns to a club that he once served in the FUFA Big League before he left prematurely for Soana (now Tooro United).

To earn the job, Isabirye beat off stiff competition from Muhammed Kisekka (formerly at Paidha Black Angels), Jackson Mayanja and Kefa Kisala.

I understand the dynamics of the modern game. It has been a hard decision to leave Kyetume but I am ready for fresh challenges everyday. I am ready to serve Nyamityobora and happy to return to a club I call home.

The immediate task at hand is that away duel against Paidha Black Angels on Thursday at the Bar Okoro Stadium in Zombo.

But, before the game, Isabirye will scrutinize the players when Nyamityobora takes on Luweero United this Tuesday in a trial match.

  1. All this is happening because of naivety in football administration. You cannot expect a newely promoted team from the Big League to compete for the trophy. Now, we getting to know the actual truth why SC Villa never went far during Misaggas tenure.
