After narrowly surviving relegation, Uganda Premier League side Police FC need to straight away start planning ahead of next season, starting with the renewal of head coach Abdullah Mubiru’s contract.
Mubiru’s three-and-a-half-year contract expired in January 2020, and he is in fresh negotiations with Police over the signing of a new deal.
“My representatives are in contact with my bosses at the club and negotiations over a new deal are ongoing,” Mubiru told Football256 before adding.
“It’s not going to be all about putting pen on paper because I’ve presented to them what I want as a coach and what also the club should have.”
“Let’s wait and see what happens next, maybe the two parties will reach a consent,” he added before revealing that there are also interests from elsewhere.
“There are suitors, even when am under a contract somewhere, there have always been teams interested in me but I would prefer stability this time around.”
“Due to undesired circumstances, I’ve left different clubs but as an individual, I’ve always preferred stabilizing and staying at a certain club for a long time.”
“Much as I’ve been approached by different people offering me huge sums of money, I would be prefer listening to Police first given their trust in me during hard times and my motive of stability,” he noted.
Before Police, the Uganda Cranes first assistant coach has had a stint at three different clubs in Uganda that’s Proline FC, KCCA FC and Vipers SC.
For nearly four years under Mubiru, the 2005 champions have finished in the top half of the table, once that’s the 2017/2018 season when they finished seventh.
He joined them in January of the 2016/2017 season and saved the side from relegation as the Cops finished in 13th position the same position in the 2019/2020 season, they finished 11th in the 2018/2019 season
