Former Maroons FC head coach Douglas Bamweyana is set to take over at Wakiso Giants, but while negotiations have taken place, they are yet to agree on a deal.
Kawowo Sports earlier reported that Bamweyana together with former Vipers SC coach Richard Wasswa has agreed to join Wakiso as replacements for Deo Sserwadda who has been serving on interim capacity.
Sserwadda joined the Purple Sharks in February as a replacement to Livingstone Mbabazi who was sacked just seven games into his reign at the club, agreeing to an initial six months deal with an option to make the deal permanent at the end of the season.
However, the club’s directors seem not as impressed with Sserwadda who was in charge of just four games, winning once, drawing two and losing one game and will not be making his stay permanent.
Bamweyana revealed to Football256 that while a series of meetings have taken place between the Purple Sharks and him, they are yet to come up with a final agreement.
“Yes, we have held a couple of meetings with the club, but contrary to reports we are yet to reach an agreement on the terms and expectations from either end,” Bamweyana told this website.
“Of course, the talks have been going on smoothly, and we are positive that we shall wrap them up sooner. However, at this stage it is the club to make the decision on the issue,” he added.
Bamweyana was sacked by Maroons FC in March following a string of poor results, with the club facing relegation. Maroons relegation was later confirmed following the abandonment of the league albeit with five games to go.
Wakiso Giants, on the other hand, had an indifferent first season in the top flight, finishing 10th on the log with 30 points, and still have a Round of 16 tie against URA FC to negotiate in the yet to be concluded Uganda Cup.
The club will be hoping to get their next appointment right after both their previous appointments of Kefa Kisala and Mbabazi did not quite deliver to the expectations of the club.
