Uganda Cranes head coach, Sebastien Desabre has thrown in the towel and resigned after the team failed to progress to the later stages of the on-going 2019 Total Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
The Frenchman signed a two-year deal in December 2017 taking over from Serbian tactician Mulitin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic who stepped down because of accumulated salary arrears and now he has also resigned.
Before joining Uganda Cranes, Desabre was in-charge of Egyptian Premier league side Ismaili FC. On Sunday the Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) released a communication that they had parted ways with Desabre.
“On the 6th of July 2019, both FUFA and National Team Head coach of the Uganda Cranes Desabre mutually agreed to terminate the contract between the two parties,” read the communication.
In the Group stage of the 2019 AFCON Uganda Cranes beat the Democratic Republic of Congo 2-0 before drawing 1-1 with Zimbabwe and losing 2-0 to Egypt. They went on to fall 1-0 to Senegal on Friday in the Round of 16.
Apparently, this upset Desabre who felt like FUFA wasn’t making is work easier, since even the players were discontented, that they refused to go for training twice this week, probably why they even lost to Egypt.
