What you need to know:

  • Shortly after he was unveiled, Bbosa tipped that the team is expected to make a massive recruitment dominated by players or officials that previously worked with the former Red Eagles coach. 

Wasswa Bbosa has taken the mantle at Gaddafi FC and he is not alone. The club's new coach is moving with a number of cadres he worked with to win the 2020/21 Uganda Premier League and Cecafa with Express FC.

The coach expects to bring that mojo and achieve similar feats as the Gaddafi barracks-side seeks a formal move from their light army green jersey emblazoned with a AK 47 rifle to a more civilian outfit. 

"I have some [players] who I have been working with and will be moving with them," Bbosa said on June 23 when asked about his intentions to recruit players from Express.

Bossa has moved with a number of officials including goalkeeping coach Sam Kawalya who replaces Frank Ssebagala and George Lutalo who takes over from Mubarak Wamboya as assistant coach.

Ayub Balyejusa will be the physical trainer while Hassan Zungu will be charged with the junior team set up.


Gaddafi FC president Edrine Ochieng spelt out the club's ambition for silverware as the reason for bringing in Bbosa's experience.

"The team, just like any other, wants to win the league. I have been watching the team's progress for about four months and believe we can compete in the next season," he echoed. 

On Thursday, the club also unveiled a new sponsor in Modern Group of companies as the club officially starts a formal process to change name to Modern Football Club.
