Express sacks Kisala, hire Ssemwogerere

The chopping and changing is not about to stop in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.
On Tuesday afternoon, Express FC sacked coach Kefa Kisala a day after the club lost 2-0 to Police at the Betway Muteesa II Stadium in Wankulukuku.
Goals from Juma Balinya and Johnson Odongo helped Police to their seventh win of the season but it came at Kisala’s expense.
An immediate decision had been taken to part ways with the former club winger and his entire technical department shortly after the match on Monday.
But club chairman Kiryowa Kiwanuka denied the reports via Twitter. But nearly 24 hours later, Express FC dismissed Kisala in a letter, appointing former captain George Ssemwogerere as new coach.
Kisala left Express in tenth place with 21 points after five wins and six draws in 17 outings thus far.
He is replaced by his former captain at Express in Ssemwogerere who led the Red Eagles to three league titles in 1993, 1995 and 1996, as well as the Kakungulu Cup (now Uganda Cup).
Also in 1995, Ssemwogerere played in the semifinals of African Cup of Champions Clubs, now present day Caf Champions League and they surrendered to South African side Orlando Pirates.
Ssemwogerere comes in with a new assistant in James Magala and former club striker Hassan Mubiru as the team trainer.
