Management of newly promoted Uganda Premier League outfit Wakiso Giants Football Club has signed and confirmed former Uganda Cranes left winger Kefa Kisala as their head coach.

Kisala, a CAF “A” licenced coach agreed to a two-year renewable contract that takes immediate effect.

The newly appointed head coach will come along with a complete backroom staff that has assistant coach James Odoch (CAF B Licenced) and others who will be unveiled with time.

Kisala has been without a coaching job since his sacking at Express Football Club for inconsistent results mid-last season.

He has previously worked for Uganda Cranes as assistant coach to Bobby Williamson and later Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic.

At Wakiso Giants, he replaces Ibrahim Kirya whose contract was not renewed after he guided the club from the second tier division, the FUFA Big League to the coveted Uganda Premier League.

At least 20 coaches had applied for the job that was advertised.
