Kyetume Football Club has announced a change in the technical department as one of the means looked at to mitigate the alarming rate of poor performance.

Uganda Cranes legend Jackson “Mia Mia” Mayanja bounces back as head coach-cum-manager and takes over from Alex Isabirye.

The development was confirmed by the club chairperson Ruben Kaggwa Mubiru during a brainstorming meeting with the players.

“We have consulted everybody inside the club and this decision to have Jackson Mayanja as head of the coaches was okayed” Kaggwa disclosed to Kawowo Sports.

Since Alex Isabirye took charge of the team after the sacking of Charles Livingstone Mbabazi, the club has lost 6 consecutive games.

The club’s recent lapse in form has witnessed them drop to the relegation parameters.

Isabirye has accepted the decision to work under Mayanja for the betterment of the team.

“I was approached about the decision and there is no way I could say no. We all want better performances” Isabirye testified.

Mayanja has served Kyetume FC in varying capacities as head coach (during the FUFA Big League alongside Allan Kabonge), as technical director and lately as manager.
