Michael Nam relieved of his duties at UPL giants

Ugandan Premier League (UPL) side Vipers SC has dissolved its technical bench, releasing among others, Kenyan coach Michael Ouma Nam who only took charge for 21 matches.

Nam was in charge at the club for just under seven months, having replaced Mexican Javier Espinoza midway through the 2018/19 season and having guided the side to a second placed finish.

Seven short

Vipers picked 59 points from the season’s 30 matches, finishing seven points behind league winners KCCA. In a statement on Monday 22 July, the club noted that it is in the process of searching for a replacement.
