The Ugandan football federation, FUFA have in an abrupt move parted ways with the national team coach in charge of the youth side, Kwasi Fabin Samuel, only after 62 days in charge.
Kwasi was on March 20, 2019 appointed as the national junior teams’ coach and was directly in charge of U17 and U20 teams but in a statement on Wednesday, FUFA announced they had parted ways.
“FUFA and National Junior Teams’ (U17 and U20) head coach Mr. Kwasi Fabin Samuel have agreed to end the contract between the two parties by mutual consent,” read in part the statement by the football governing body.
“FUFA is happy with the work done by Mr. Kwasi in the period he has been in Uganda.”
The football governing body for Uganda noted they had been requested by Kwasi to return home in Ghana so he could handle family matters and thus will not be able to continue with the job.
The Ghanaian tactician was in charge of the Uganda Cubs team that bowed out of the AFCON U-17 tournament in Tanzania after failing to go past group stages.
The 60 year old with a vast experience having guided the Ghanaian under 17 team, The Black starlets, to the world cup finals in India in 2017, and the final of the 2017 under 17 AFCON the same year had put pen to paper for a one year renewable contract but has not lived to finish it.
