Newly appointed Buikwe Red Stars head coach Meddie Nyanzi has set promotion of the fourth division club to the FUFA Regional League as his major target during his one year tenure at the club.
“I want to take back this team to the very top where it should belong, and that has to start by gaining promotion to the Big League,” Nyanzi told Football256 in an interview.
“Development or growth takes time and I believe my impact at the club will also take time but on the other hand I am sure that it will soon be visible,” he added.
Nyanzi was selected the best to take over the vacant responsibility ahead of Dan Segawa, Robert Omony and Joseph Kigobe.
Nyanzi will replace Geoffrey Musisi who was at the helm of the Buikwe based side for the last campaign before throwing in the towel.
“We all know this team has a great history and seeing it compete at a low level is not anywhere close to good so it is now my responsibility to turn the tables around so I am ready for the challenge.”
“I want to build players that will be useful to the club but also give Ugandan football a new image of playing entertaining soccer that can as well bring in positive results.”
“I am still a young coach with a lot of ambitions and I believe this will be a great stage for me to showcase what I am capable of when it comes to the coaching role.”
“So it is also up to me to utilise this golden chance to grow my career. I only pray for a good working experience with my bosses together with the players to reach our goal.”
“I have been previously at Bugema University where I have natured several talents and staged great performances in the University league so with the support I can even do better here,” he concluded.
Nyanzi has also previously coached at Busika United, Mairye United FC and Bunyaruguru Girls FC during the FUFA Women Elite League.
However, it is Bugema University where has served the longest, first, in the capacity of coach-player before taking the full mantle as the head coach of the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) church-owned institution.
