The development was confirmed via the club’s official website.

“Vipers SC has this evening terminated the services of its head coach Javier Martinez Espinoza. The club management thanks the Mexican tactician for the services rendered to the club,”

“Vipers SC will in the next 24 hours make major announcements on the new” technical team after the restructuring aimed at helping Vipers achieve its desired objectives at both local and international level.”

Martinez came into charges in October replacing Portuguese Miguel Dacosta who guided the team to Ugandan Premier League Championship.

He leaves the team with an unbeaten run in the league having 25 points in the second with 5 less of table leaders KCCA and two games in hand.

Edward Golola is expected to return as the interim coach as the club prepares to face off with CS Sfaxien in the CAF Confederations Cup.
