BUL FC head coach Alex Isabirye is confident that the addition of Uganda Cranes legend Simeone Masaba to the technical bench is a proper step forward for the team, as they aim to continue the purposeful growth.

Masaba who left URA FC earlier this year was sighted working as a Bul FC backroom staff as the side clinched the Uganda Cup 3-1 against Vipers SC in the final that was played in Masindi earlier this month.

However, it was not until Wednesday the 29th of June that he was officially announced as a new member of the technical team of the Oil Manufacturers.

“Despite being in the morning of his coaching career, Masaba has a lot of football knowledge,” Isabirye was quoted by the club website.

“He had a stellar playing career and he has coached some good teams, generally he has achieved a lot in football.”

“I believe he will share his vast knowledge and experience with us as we try to build a strong team,” he added.

Masaba signed a two-year contract and he becomes Isabirye’s immediate deputy taking over from Richard Kasule who will now serve as the second assistant coach.

Since Isabirye took charge of the Eastern giant side in 2021, the focus has been on creating a winning team.

In that period BUL has played two Uganda Cup finals, winning one on top of improving its Uganda Premier League position from 11th in the 2020/21 season to fourth during the 2021/22 campaign.

“We are building a team that will be dominant in the future and therefore we need individuals who still have a big future and Masaba is one of them,” Isabirye noted.

Meanwhile, Masaba is impressed by the current performances of BUL FC and he is looking forward to adding more success to the club.

“It is a wonderful club at the moment and it has been doing very well both in the league and the Uganda Cup.”

“BUL suits my coaching career and I am here to join efforts to see that the team achieves its goals both locally and internationally,” Masaba stated.

The former Uganda Cranes defender had coaching stints at URA, Onduparaka FC, and Wakiso Giants FC.

Isabirye’s charges will be representing Uganda in the CAF Confederations Cup and Masaba will be vital having been at that stage with URA last season.
