In a dramatic move, Vipers SC have parted company with coach Miguel Jorge Da Costa, who guided the Kitende-based side to the Uganda Premier League title less than two months ago.
In a press statement issued club spokesman Abdul Dilshan Wasike said Costa was sacked in a ‘restructuring process and preparation’ for upcoming competitions, which include continental football in the Caf Champions League next season.
According to Wasike, a new coach will be named soon. Moses Golola, who was one of Costa’s assistants, has been appointed caretaker.
“Vipers SC would like to thank Coach Da Costa for his commitment and service to the club and wishes him success in his career advancement going forward,” Wasike added.
Costa was appointed Vipers coach in March, 2017 on a three-year contract, replacing Abdullah Mubiru. With its highly ambitious owner Lawrence Mulindwa, the rate of turnover for coaching staff at Vipers remains unpredictable.
