Vipers Sack Head Coach Beto Bianchi After Winless Streak
Friday – Vipers SC coach Beto Bianchi has been fired after only two months at the Wakiso powerhouse following a string of matches without a victory for the Uganda Premier League defending champions.
Bianchi, who took over the team when Robertinho left for Simba SC, was sacked after his team lost 1-0 to the same Simba SC in the CAF Champions League last Tuesday, with Vipers citing “disappointing results and lack of development within the team.”
“Vipers Sports Club announces that the contract of head Coach Beto Bianchi has been terminated with immediate effect,” club statement read. “The club would like to thank Bianchi for his tireless efforts during his time at the club and wish him success in his future endeavours.”
Beto Bianchi managed just one point in four continental matches. During his brief 57-day reign, Vipers didn’t score a goal in all seven competitive games.
Defending champion Vipers is fourth in the top flight league, seven points behind league leader KCCA FC.
No replacement for Bianchi was immediately announced.
