Coach Masaba at URA to learn

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.
