Express FC head coach, Wasswa Bbosa dedicated the 2020/21 StarTimes Uganda Premier League trophy to the late Abdul Kinobe who passed away on June 22, 2021.
While being crowned champions at StarTimes offices in Kampala on Tuesday morning, the tactician expressed his gratitude towards the rested soldier.
“I am happy and would like to dedicate this trophy to manager Kinobe (Abdul),” Bbosa told the media.
“We have been going through the whole day right from morning to evening with him (Kinobe). We always yearning for this mark and I am excited that it has happened today,” he added
Kinobe was the team manager during the 2011/12 season when the Wankulukuku side last won the league title. While in the just-concluded campaign he has been in charge of travel arrangements and team logistics.
Being a supporter of the team from childhood he grew with the roving spirit of the club that saw him lead other fans in the chanting even at stints when the team was in a bad state.
“It has not been easy to emerge as champions. I have worked hard for a long time to get the victory. For the past four seasons, I have been chasing and here we are.”
“I am proud that at last, I am champion and it’s a harvest after facing a lot though it is a blessing to reach this far for my very fast time,” Bbosa concluded.
Bbosa was an assistant coach to Sam Ssimbwa (now at URA) during the 2011/12 season when Express last emerged as top tier champions and after nine years he has regained the bragging rights of the Red Eagles.
