Uganda Revenue Authority Football Club (URA FC) has sacked their assistant coach Livingston Mbabazi on disciplinary matters just six months after he was appointed.
The club announced the development in a statement to the press on Thursday afternoon
In a statement issued on Thursday, the club management said, “Mbabazi Charles’s contract has been terminated with immediate effect by the URA Football Club following his gross misconduct and absenteeism from the team’s training, matches and other official events on several junctures.
Mbabazi has appeared and written apologies to the URA FC Board, with the latest being on August 08th 2016.”
According to the statement, on the day he appeared to the Club Board for his misconduct and absenteeism, Mbabazi reportedly promised to change or the club terminates his contract.
URA’s next game in the league is at home to Vipers on September 6 and it remains to be seen whether Mbabazi’s void will have been filled by then.
After failing to negotiate with Bright Stars’ head coach Fred Kajoba to join them before the recommencement of the Azam Uganda Premier League second round, URA FC in February this year brought in Mbabazi as assistant coach to Keefa Kisaala.
Mbabazi was announced as second assistant coach at Lweza FC when he completed his two weeks CAF B license course. Going by verbal contracts in Uganda it was easy for him to cross over to URA FC after he realized there was a void to fill.
