Alex Isabirye was confirmed as BUL Football Club head coach

Management of Jinja-based entity BUL Football Club agreed with head coach Alex Isabirye for a permanent employment contract.

Isabirye will ink a two-year contract at the club christened as the Eastern Giants as the preliminary talks between the two parties were concluded.

The talks have been between Isabirye and the club’s managerial wing led by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Ahmed Kongola, according to trusted impeccable sources inside the club.

“The talks were concluded with all the terms embedded including the duration of two years. Now, what remains is the actual signing when the club chairperson (Ronald Barente) returns from the compassion leave,” BUL FC inside source imitated.

Isabirye will be tasked to identify a suitable backroom staff that will push for the collective execution of work tasks at hand.

Daniel Kabaale, who has been working among the assistants is expected to bounce back with new faces as Baker Kasule being suggested.

Isabirye was brought on board during the final bend of the 2020 – 2021 season, initially signing a short-term three-month contract as he replaced Arthur Kyesimira.

Kyesimira’s work affairs had been stained by the inconsistent results during the matches.

This is Isabirye’s second homecoming at BUL. The former Uganda Cranes international who has a CAF “A” licence has also worked for two stints at Uganda Revenue Authority (URA), Sports Club Victoria University (SCVU), Entebbe (one week), Nyamityobora, Kyetume, and lately Somalian army side, Horseed.

BUL finished the recently concluded season in the 11th position with 33 points when the league was abruptly halted because of the Coronavirus pandemic.

David Isabirye is a senior staff writer for Kawowo Sports where he covers most of the major events.
