Alex Isabirye has left his role as Vipers SC head coach after just 20 matches in charge.

The coach leaves after leading Vipers to their first ever league and cup double.

In a letter dated July 12th, 2023, Isabirye cited interference in his job as the main reason for leaving.

His resignation comes a day after he was summoned by club CEO Simon Peter Njuba to the disciplinary committee for reportedly absconding from duty.

“I am writing to confirm my resignation from the position of head coach of Vipers SC due to breach of my contract,” reads in part a letter Isabirye sent to Vipers on Wednesday.

Isabirye’s Resignation Letter

“Article 5, Section 3 and 4 of my employment contract, states that I am responsible for endorsing players being recruited and choosing my assistant team/staff in consultation with the club management.

“However, this clause was not honoured and I was not aware of the recruitment of three current members of the team: Raoul Lukusa Kayembe (assistant coach), Giancarlo Lopez and Luis ‘Tinga’ Otavio Santos (Brazilian players).

Isabirye, the former URA and BUL coach, was unveiled as Vipers head coach on March 12th this year and has managed over 20 games in his four-month reign at Kitende.
