Belgian Saintfiet Leading Contender To Replace Coach Bobby

Belgian former Namibia, Ethiopia and Yemen head coach, Tom Saintfiet is reported to have verbally applied for the vacant cranes’ coaching
job. Zambian 2012 AFCON winning coach, Kim Poulsen of Tanzania and Amavubi stars technicians are also in the developing race.

Tom Saintfiet who also coached Yanga Sports Club and won for them the 2012 CECAFA Club Cup/Kagame Interclub Cup, thinks to know Uganda game more that sacked Bobby Williamson “I have followed the Ugandan game for years. It is one of the most exciting teams in the region and the players have so much potential,” Saintfiet stated when contacted by MTN football site.

The 40 years old and former midfield added that,“When I was coaching Ethiopia, I saw them play during the Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup, and
when I was coach of Yanga SC in Tanzania, I had one of their players in my team, who was really good. Together with him, we played and won
the Cecafa Club Championship Cup last year.” Saintfiet’s representative have already talked to FUFA bosses whom through their spokes person Rogers Mulindwa, denied a comment to The Red Pepper about the developments.

Tom says“My representative has spoken to the Uganda FA leadership, and I shall be seeking an appointment to see the FA President very soon, as I believe that we share a common vision – to see Uganda in Brazil in 2014, and in Morocco for the AFCON the very next year,” Also Zambia head coach Herve Renard is in the line to take on the cranes.

Confirmed sources indicate that FUFA is looking at the unsettled coaching man to prove Bobby Williamson right. “Herve is the kind of Coach we would need because he can take a team to another level. Dossena is also good,” sources from FUFA that wanted anonymity said.

Rwandese Sredojevic ‘Micho’ Milutin, ex-Italian midfielder Guiseppe Dossena and are other targets for the vacant job.
