Vipers Head Coach Miguel Da Costa Fired

By Sam Ssebuliba.

Miguel Da Costa who has been head coach at Vipers soccer club for two years has been sacked by his bosses at the Kitende based side.

In his first season, he led Vipers to a 2nd place finish in the Uganda Super league but was unfortunate as he saw his side get eliminated in the initial stages of the CAF Confederations Cup where they lost to South African club Platinum Stars over two legs.

Miguel guided the Venoms to the 2017/18 Uganda Premier League tittle.

Barely a week ago Vipers were eliminated from the CECAFA Kagame Cup at the quarter finals stage by Kenyan side Gor Mahia.

Vipers have this afternoon released a statement confirming the sacking.

“The Vipers SC management has today the 17th July 2018 as part of its restructuring process and preparation for the CAF club competitions and upcoming Uganda Premier League season relieved it’s head coach Miguel Jorge Da Costa of his services to the club as coach, read the statement.

“Vipers SC would like to thank Coach Da Costa for his commitment and service to the club and wishes him success in his career advancement going forward.
