Nsimbe made to wait on contract
New KCC coach George ‘Best’ Nsimbe is yet to put pen to paper since being handed the role early this month.
Nsimbe was introduced to his new coaching staff on June 1 at Lugogo and is expected to assume his new role in the pre-season ahead of the 2012/13 campaign.
But the affirming of contract details has dragged on longer than expected. “I'm still waiting," Nsimbe told SuperSport.com, adding, "Nothing conclusive has been signed yet."
"We agreed with the football club but await feedback from KCCA on my proposal." Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) bankrolls the club.
"Hopefully we will have it sorted in time because we have to prepare for the new season," added the former Victors and Fire Masters coach.
Nsimbe will be deputised by hitherto KCC interim coach Morley Byekwaso, with Moses Oloya remaining the goalkeeping coach.
In Nsimbe’s proposal yet to be approved by KCCA, the former KCC coach wants a three-year contract in which he pledges to have won silverware for the club.
“It’s in my proposal that we have to win silverware again,” said Nsimbe, “That is one primary target.
“We have done it together when we won the league in 2008, we can do it again if we recruit well.”
Nsimbe guided KCC to the Uganda Super League title in 2008, which is ironically the eight-time winners’ last medal.
He parted ways with the Lugogo side before the start of the 2009 season, joining Victors, after he refused to work under Sam Ssimbwa, who had taken over during the former's short coaching course in Germany.
The 46-year-old, who also led KCC to the second round of the Caf Champions League in his last season at the club, went on to lead Victors to the Uganda Cup title in 2010.
Misunderstandings with Victors’ owners mid this season saw him quit for then relegation-bound Fire Masters. It’s from there he made a return to KCC.
