Uganda Premier League defending champions Vipers Sports Club have sacked Javier Martinez Espinoza as their head coach.
“Vipers SC has this evening terminated the services of
its head coach Javier Martinez Espinoza.
The club management thanks the Mexican tactician for the services rendered to the club, ”read in part a statement released by the Kitende based club on Saturday evening.
“Vipers SC shall in the next 24 hours make major announcements on the new technical team.”
Espinoza’s sacking comes on the backdrop of his team being held to a nil all draw by Tooro United earlier today in the StarTimes Premier League to widen the gap between the Kitende based team and table leaders KCCA FC.
Last week, Vipers exited Caf Champions league after being beaten by Algerian side Constantine at home relegating them to the Caf Confederation Cup where they were on Friday evening pitted against Tunisian giants CS Sfaxien in playoffs to be played next month.
The Mexican tactician’s sacking comes only four months after replacing Portuguese coach Miguel Da Costa who was sacked only a month after guiding the Kitende based team to the Uganda Premier League title.
Despite being unbeaten in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League, Espinoza’s Vipers has not performed to the expectation of the club management and fans.
