Uganda coach terminates contract after taking the team to Afcon knockout stages

Desabre Sebastien has terminated his contract as the head coach of Uganda after he led the team to the Round of 16 at the 2019 Afcon.

The termination came a day after the East Africans failed to go beyond the first knockout stage of the tournament, losing 1-0 to Senegal on Friday.

Uganda FA (FUFA) has this morning announced that the decision to part ways with Sebastian was mutual and is for the benefit of both parties.

“On the 6th of July 2019, both FUFA and National Team Head coach of the Uganda Cranes Mr. Desabre Sebastien Serge Louis mutually agreed to terminate the contract between the two parties,” reads the statement on Uganda FA’s official website.

“The reasons for termination of the employment contract are for the benefit and growth of both parties.

“FUFA recognises the contribution by Mr. Desabre for the improvement of the sporting and professional organisation of the Uganda Cranes inclusive of qualification to the AFCON 2019 Finals and also to the Round of 16.”

Uganda had finished the group stages in the second position behind hosts Egypt and ahead of DRC and the Warriors whom they played to a 1-1 draw.
