Following 18 months apart, Coaches George ‘Best’ Nsimbe and Abdallah Mubiru are back together again but this time at Vipers and not KCCA.The duo won back to back league titles at KCCA (2012-13 & 2013-14) with Nsimbe deputized by Mubiru but that won’t be same as the latter now heads the other.
The ex-Proline Coach was appointed as the Uganda Cup winners Head Coach on a three year deal at Imperial Resort Hotel, Entebbe relegating his former boss to second in pecking order with Edward Golola now third.
Mubiru promised a good working relationship with his former boss.
“I have maximum respect for my brother Nsimbe. I’m going to be professional enough so that the gap between the boss and deputy is not visible,” Mubiru, a Caf A coaching license holder, told Daily Monitor.
Nsimbe who holds a CAF B license said he had no problem working under Mubiru who is more qualified than he is.
He is more qualified than me. I treated him well while we won two trophies at KCCA and I hope he will reciprocate that love.
