“If you’re here but when you don’t have goals to achieve your in wrong place. As you decided to become coaches, you must bebe having targets where you want to be in the next 5-10 years from now. I will be glad if I found some of you coaching Kenya or Brazil national football team” He cautioned.

Mr. Hamid who was also the chief guest at the closure of the course still asked coaches not to sit on the knowledge they have acquired in this course.
‘Most of you’re interested in getting certificates and thereafter you forget to share this beautiful knowledge with relevant people’.

‘As the federation we have embarked on capacity-building because we know it’s the only way we can change the face of football in Uganda’

‘Many people live in football but lack relevant technicalities to manage and run it smoothly. So it’s our task as the federation to change the way how people think about this beautiful game of football and so here we start with you coaches’.

Meanwhile, Ayub Khalifa [coach Kawempe Muslim] who talked on behalf of the coaches was overwhelmed by the level of commitment exhibited by the class but also cautioned his fellow coaches not to sit on the knowledge they have acquired.


“I want to thank all of you for having been committed since the beginning up to today when we are closing.’My humble appeal to you all is that let us show people out there that we have been empowered with knowledge both technically and tactically’.
