URA are still in search of their next permanent coach as they look to get the club back on track for the ongoing 2023/24 campaign.

The four-time champions found themselves in a spot of bother following the demise of Head Coach Sam Timbe last month leaving his assistant, rookie Fred Muhumuzza in charge.

The former Victors and SC Villa midfielder guided the club to the finals of the Fufa Super 8 and was in charge of the league opener away to UPDF but reports show he will be ditched.

The latest name in the frame to take the head coach hot seat is former Ugandan International David Obua, who has just recently completed his coaching badges.

With the King as fondly known increasingly linked with a move to the Lugazi based side, here’s a look at the latest we know regarding a potential switch.

Obua has revealed to his close confidants that he is ready to take up the job.

That will mean returning to managerial roles after a brief stint at Maroons where he worked with George ‘Best’ Nsimbe and also managed Lango Province in the Fufa Drum.

According to reliable sources, Obua will move in with at least two back up staff with reports that one could be his former Uganda Cranes teammate Dan Obote.

That could mean Muhumuzza paving way as reported by media outlets although he conducted training session on Wednesday at Gayaza.

URA’s next game is on Friday September 22 against Gaddafi at Mehta Grounds, Lugazi.
