Ugandan champions Vipers SC have appointed coach Michael Nam Ouma to head the team “until the end of the season.”
He will be assisted by goalkeeper trainer Moses Oloya, Edward Ssali and Ram Nyakana Mpuga with a fifth member of the technical bench set to be known soon, according to the club’s statement.
The Kenyan coach was installed hours after the Venoms announced the sacking of Mexican Martin Javier Martinez Espinoza after barely five months on the job.
According to sources, Espinoza was shown the door due to unbecoming attitude towards support staff members and certain senior players and for failure to qualify the team to the African Champions League group stage.
