Uganda Premier League side Wakiso Giants FC has confirmed Deo Sserwadda as the new coach.

The Purple Sharks have on Friday confirmed that Livingstone Mbabazi was relieved of his duties as coach and consequently Sserwadda named the new manager on an interim basis until the end of the season.

Mbabazi was sacked just after six games in charge and it was Steven Bengo who took charge of the last game against MYDA FC in the Uganda Cup.

Bengo will closely work with Sserwadda as his assistant with Ali Kiggundu as the goalkeeping coach.

Sserwadda has previously managed SC Villa, URA FC, Kyambogo University and recently Busiro Ssaza team in the Masaza Cup.

Wakiso Giants FC is currently 10th on the log with 25 points.
