Police and Abdallah Mubiru have parted ways after more than five years of marriage.

Mubiru has been Head coach for the club since December 2016 when he replaced Angelo Lonyesi.

“The board of the Police Football Club has taken full analysis of the current performance of the team. At the beginning of the season, the ambition and hopes of the club were to win the Uganda Premier League title. As the season progressed these hopes were dashed,” reads part of the statement.

“Currently, the hopes are to stay in the top flight of Uganda’s football. However recent performances appear to indicate that even this hope may not be realized unless drastic steps are taken to address the situation,” the statement further reads.

Luyinda who has been serving as assistant to Abdallah Mubiru for a long time will now serve as acting head coach alongside team captain Tonny Mawejje who will serve as a coach-player.

“It’s against this background that the board has appointed Coach John Luyinda as acting head coach. These changes take immediate effect. Meanwhile, the club will continue to discuss with Mr. Abdallah Mubiru to agree on the way forward for the future of both parties.”

Police are 13th on the table with 24 points with five games to end the season and survival could be tough.
