AFCON 2019: Uganda head coach Sebastien Desabre sacked

The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has sacked head coach, Sebastien Desabre.

The 42-year-old was dismissed from his role as Uganda head coach following their exit from the tournament.

The Uganda national football team lost 1-0 to Senegal on Friday.

However, the Ugandan federation released a statement on Sunday confirming the exit of Desabre.

The statement reads:

FUFA is grateful for Mr. Desabre’s contribution to the sporting and professional development of the Uganda Cranes, including qualifying for the finals and the knockout stages of CAN-2019.

The French man has just five months left on his contract.

Desabre becomes the second manager to be sacked after Javier Aguirre was dismissed by the host nation, Egypt.
