Fred Kajoba has resigned from his position as Vipers SC head coach this evening with four matches remaining to finish the Uganda Premier League.

The former Simba (now UPDF) and Bright Stars tactician informed his bosses of his decision after today’s training session.

Kajoba threw in a towel after Vipers’ Technical Director, Charles Masembe asked him to choose between club (Vipers) and national team. Kajoba is the goalkeeping coach for the Uganda Cranes.

It was actually FUFA under Mulindwa then that offered Kajoba the goalkeeping coach role while with UPDF and later Bright Stars and also continued to work with the national team while at Vipers SC until Monday May 31.
