Ex-Chiefs Man Sacked From First Head Coach Role

URA FC have announced they have parted ways with Uganda legend David Obua five months into his 12-month contract.

Obua, 39, who secured his first role as a head coach at the start of the season departs with assistant Peter Byaruhanga Adyeri and fitness coach Kawa.

His first foray into coaching came in an assistant role with Maroon FC between 2018 and 2023 but at URA, they quickly ran out of patience with the former Kaizer Chiefs star.

In his 20 matches in charge, they won eight games, drew four and lost eight, leaving them in mid-table and 13 points behind league leaders Kitara.

Obua won the league, Nedbank Cup, Telkom Knockout and two MTN8 titles with Chiefs between 2005 and 2008 before starring in the Scottish Premier League with Heart of Midlothian.
