Express Football Club on Tuesday were officially crowned Startimes Uganda Premier League champions for the 2020/21 season at the sponsors’ head offices in Kampala.
Not only was Express FC coach Wasswa Bbosa winning his first title as head coach but was also confirmation of a league double-winning season in his family.
The adage that “An apple falls far not from the tree” fits very well with the Bbosa family.
Bossa is the uncle to Crested Cranes’ midfielder Leticia Nabbosa who plies her trade at Hoima based Lady Doves Football Club.
The soft-spoken midfield gem was an integral character in her club’s heroic and historical win of the Fufa Women Super League this year.
Nabbosa is only awaiting travel to Nairobi with her club for the CAF Women Champions League Cecafa zonal qualifiers which have been tentatively cancelled until further notice.
Her Uncle will also be packing and getting ready for his biggest stage as a coach in the CAF Champions League with Express later this year.
“Am so proud of my daughter (niece) and I think she will go very far, I knew she would play football because of the love she had for balls at a very young age,” Bbosa told Football256.
“Nabbosa is a very good midfielder who can contain as well as dribble past defenders, she is calm and knows when to pass and shoot,” he added.
Capping up his excitement, an advisory Bbosa rather advises fellow parents on the talent development of their kids.
“I honestly urge parents and guardians to emotionally and physically support their kids immediately they identify a talent.”
“Because a talent can feed, educate and get you the best life you never dreamed of as a family,” Bbosa noted.
Winning the Uganda Cup in 1999 with Sam Ssimbwa’s Mbale Heros, and with Express in 2003 and 2006 highlights Bbosa’s career as a player. While on the other hand, this was Nabbosa’s first league medal as a player.
