Coach Fred Kisitu Kajoba has bounced back as the Uganda Cranes goalkeepers’ coach.
The Coach will be part of the backroom staff for newly employed Uganda Cranes’ tactician Brian Jonathan McKinstry as the national team travels to Ethiopia for an international friendly match this coming Sunday.
Kajoba has served the national team for more than a decade now guiding the national team to two back to back Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals in 2017 and 2019 hosted by Gabon and Egypt.
The former Uganda Cranes Goalkeeper has been out of the Uganda Cranes’ frame since the AFCON 2019 finals in Egypt when all the back room staff that worked under Sebastien Desabre was rested and told to reapply for the advertised jobs.
“God is merciful through the virgin Mary. I am cheerful to be back to serve my country. Water will forever follow its pathway when it has ever flowed. I am proud by the FUFA leadership to rebound back and serve” He noted.
He will be joined by Michael Alexander McCarthy, the new fitness coach, Charles Livingstone Mbabazi (assistant coach), Emmanuel Nakabago (team doctor) and Frank Bumpenje (kits manager).
The Cranes will take on Ethiopia in an international build up on Sunday, 13th October 2019.
Cranes has been improved by additions of two locally based players, Kirizestom Ntambi (Wakiso Giants) and Allan Kayiwa (Vipers).
The development party head Paul Mukatabala Nantulya has already traveled to Ethiopia.
