For a fortnight now, Tooro United Football Club and their head coach Richard Wasswa Bbosa behaved as though they were in a long distance relationship.

Whereas one partner pushed to meet the other, there would be an abrupt postponement.

Bbosa, who guided the club to a respectable fourth place last season bought time and it handsomely paid off.

At one stage, Vipers Sports Club engaged in talks to lure him.

Tooro United then reacted swiftly as intensified his quest with constant talks.

On Monday, 17th June 2019, Bbosa’s intelligent and well calculated mind games were rewarded with a new employment contract.

Tooro United majority share holder Smart Akiiki Obed confirmed Bbosa would be the perfect choice for him since he had already established a great relationship with him and built a firm foundation upon which the club could be built.

WHEN I LOOK AROUND, I SEE NO COACH WHO CAN SERVE ME LIKE Wasswa BBOSA DID LAST YEAR, AT LEAST AT THE MOMENT. THIS IS THE REASON I HAD TO GIVE HIM ANOTHER CONTRACT. He brought a new life to our club. the players and fans loved him. you can not let such a person go away from you.
