41-year-old Frenchman Sebastien Desabre will today be officially unveiled as the new Uganda Cranes head coach at FUFA House in Mengo.
Desabre’s appointment follows his slight edge amongst the final four candidates who had been shortlisted to take up the job and these included; interim coach Moses Basena (Ugandan), Emilio Ferrera (Belgian) and Northern Irishman Jonathan Mckinstry.
Desabre has been the head coach of Ismaily, a club based in Egypt. He resigned this week following a confirmation from Fufa that he had been handed the Cranes job.
He will fill the shoes of Milutin Micho Sredojevic who resigned in July this year over unpaid wages. His first task at hand is to prepare the Cranes for CHAN 2018 in Morocco in January.
