Newly promoted Uganda Premier League outfit  Maroons Football Club has lost the services of head coach, Asaph Mwebaze.

Mwebaze, 44, tendered in his resignation ‘once again’ to the Uganda Prisons run club after earlier resigning when the team was still in the top flight.

His resignation comes just a fortnight after former club Chief Executive Officer, Innocent Oguda also stepped aside.

“I have finally decided to end my tenure with Maroons FC. I do not think I can make them any better and feel it’s important I go for another challenge,” Mwebaze said as quoted by Futaa.

He handed in his letter on Thursday morning but the club is yet to issue an official statement on the same.

Newly appointed CEO, Pius Bamwange confirmed receiving Mwebaze’s resignation letter.

Mwebaze recently attended CAF B Licence course and only awaits results.

He becomes the second coach to leave before the official start of the season next month.

Alex Isabirye departed from Soana and days later at Masavu Football Club.
