Uganda Cranes coach sacked



Uganda Cranes coach Bobby Williamson has been sacked ending the Scot’s four years and eight months career at the helm.

Fufa issued a notice of termination of contract to the Scot dated Monday 8, 2013 but Bobby confirmed to SuperSport.com his sacking. “Yes I have been sacked,” he said.

The federation’s notice reads: “The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (Fufa) hereby informs the public that a notice of termination of contract has this morning Monday 8th April 2013 has been given to the Cranes head coach Mr. Roberts ‘Bobby’ Williamson.

“The emergency committee of Fufa sitting today took the decision of notice in compliance with the contract of employment and other relevant labour laws of Uganda including the Employment Act.”

On who replaces the Scot, Fufa publicist, Rogers Mulindwa told the media at Fufa House in Kampala that the matter will be decided at an executive sitting. He did not disclose when it will sit.

The federation’s decision comes after Uganda’s 2-0 defeat to Liberia. The defeat left the Cranes at the bottom of Group J of the 2014 Brazil World Cup qualifiers with just two points from three games.

The 51-year-old took over Cranes reigns in July 2008 replacing László Csaba, the Romanian born Hungarian, who moved to Scottish side Hearts. Bobby’s contract was due to run out in September 2014.

Bobby won four Cecafas during his stay but has failed to take the Cranes to the Nations Cup in 2010, 2012 and 2013.
