Uganda Cranes assistant coaches Moses Basena and Fred Kajoba will take care of the national football team until after its next two matches.

This because Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has appointed the two to take charge of the team on interim basis as it searches for another tactician.

The appointment comes two days after hitherto Uganda Cranes head coach Milutin Sredejovic announced his departure to South Africa.

FUFA President Moses Magogo told the media at FUFA House in Mengo, on Monday that the appointment of Basena and Kajoba was a consensus with former players of the national team.

“We convened with immediate former players and made a decision to hand the national team to Moses Basena and Fred Kajoba as interim coaches until the CHAN 2018 and FIFA World Cup 2018 qualifiers against Rwanda and Egypt respectively. We shall give them (Basena and Kajoba) all the necessary support,” Magogo said.

 

Uganda Cranes next match is 2018 CHAN qualifier against Rwanda next month and a World Cup qualifiers against Egypt.
