Vipers SC have parted ways with their Mexican coach Javier Martinez Espinoza just half way into the season after taking over from Portuguese Miguel da Costa four months ago.
The sacking came after the reigning Ugandan champions lost further ground on leaders KCCA following a goalless draw with Tooro United.
It also comes following elimination from the Caf Champions League at the hands of Algerian side Constantine.
The club posted this statement. “The club management thanks the Mexican tactician for the services rendered to the club. Vipers SC will in the next 24 hours make major announcements on the new technical team after the restructuring aimed at helping Vipers achieve its desired objectives at both local and international level.”
Meanwhile, Vipers have been drawn against Tunisian giants CS Sfaxien in the Caf Confederations Cup play-off round for a slot in the group stages.
