The newly appointed Uganda Police Football Club Head Coach Angelo Lonyesi has vowed to help the club to restore its glory.

Lonyesi will take charge with immediate effect as the club fights to return to the Star-Times Uganda Premier League.  His first task will be to boost the morale of players, ahead of the new season, he will also have to convince the team’s key players to remain with the team in the Big league.

Lonyesi who is returning to the club for the second time said he is aware of the task ahead of him, but, nevertheless believes he will be able to help Police return to the top tie in “just one year”.

Lonyesi will be deputized by David Yiga, while Faisal Kanene will be the goalkeeping coach.

The team's Chief Executive Officer Arinaitwe Katurebe said they zeroed on Lonyesi because of his experience and the history he has with the club.

“We have got a new team that will take the club to the next stage, we are playing in the big league, it is a big challenge so we had to scratch our heads and zero on someone who we have confidence that he is going to take the team and bring it back to the super league”. Arinaitwe said.

Lonyesi replaces Abdallah Mubiru who was sacked in April this year after having a poor run of results. He was replaced by John Luyinda as interim coach who failed to save the club from relegation.
