The Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) has suspended Express FC head coach Wasswa Bbosa for three matches.
Bbosa is understood to have made unsporting comments as his side lost 2-0 to Arua Hill SC in a StarTimes Uganda Premier League match on Friday, October 15. He claimed the Red Eagles CEO Isaac Mwesigw paid the referees to ensure that they (Express) do not win.
The former Tooro United tactician’s comments were, according to FUFA, in contravention of the FUFA Ethics and Disciplinary code and the FUFA Competition Rule (CF Article 31), putting the game in disrepute.
He is also fined sh2m which is supposed to be paid within 15 days.
“Wasswa Bbosa, the head coach of Express FC has been suspended for three Competition matches and fined sh2m for his unsporting comments made in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League match between Express FC and Arua Hill SC. FUFA announced.
“The fine of sh2m must be paid within 15 days from receipt of the decision released today. He is required to produce proof of payment of the same to the Ethics and Disciplinary Committee by November 5, 2021.”
Bbosa, who led the Red Eagles to their first league crown since 2012, will thus miss the trips away to UPDF FC and BUL FC plus the home clash with Vipers SC.
