Former Mbarara City FC head coach Hussein Mbalangu has prophesied the collapse of the club sooner or later if nothing changes administratively.

The tactician who resigned from his position at the Uganda Premier League side early this week, made the remarks as he appeared on Sanyuka Television on Thursday.

“If the changes are not made quickly in the club’s management, Mbarara City FC is going to collapse, because there is a lot of selfishness amongst the administrators which is affecting the club.”

“The problem is not with the coaches nor the players but the management, the welfare of the playing and technical staff is poor because they are reluctant and selfish.”

“It is overwhelming to know that some players at the club do not have contracts while at the same time they train on empty stomachs,” Mbalangu noted.

It is on the above ground that he placed in his resignation after the first round of the 2021/22 UPL season.

Mbalangu was hired on a short term basis in November 2021 and at the time of his departure, he left the Ankole Lions positioned 12th on the 16 team UPL log with 15 points, only four above the red zone.

In the 15 games he has been in charge, the team won four times, drew thrice while they lost a whopping eight games.

Reports have linked two names already towards succeeding him including former Bright Stars FC’s Baker Mbowa and former Vipers SC assistant head coach Paul Kiwanuka.
