URA FC legend Simeon Masaba says he is back at his former club to continue learning as a coach.
The former Uganda Cranes international was this week named as one of the assistant coaches to Sam Ssimbwa.
“I feel proud,” said the 37-year-old, “I feel great and I am excited to be home again.
“But still, I have to prove my worth as a coach now, which I did as a player.”
Masaba was speaking to the StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) club website.
“It’s a new challenge. The target is to win everything with this beautiful club and I hope my experience will help in guiding the team and help the players with their discipline.”
Masaba added: “When I was away practicing my coaching in other clubs, I was always in talks with Sam Ssimbwa and some administrators of the URA FC Board.
“And they had promised me that I will be back at the club any time and here I am.”
Masaba was part of the URA team that won the league in 2010/2011 and finished as runners-up during the 2012/2013 season.
He also won the Uganda Cup (Kakungulu Cup) in the 2011/2012 and 2013/2014 seaaons.
