The Uganda premier league secretariat has slapped a two match touch line ban on Police FC head coach Abdallah Mubiru for attacking Mr. Mashood Ssali in their 2-2 draw against KCCA FC last Friday.
Police came from behind to pick a point against the match fancied opponents but the result came after the Mubiru had been shown the matching orders earlier in the 32nd minute.
-Match Officials’ Reports indicate that during AUPL match # 174 Police FC Vs KCCA FC played on Friday 31 March 2017 at Mandela National Stadium (Namboole), Police FC Head Coach Abdallah Mubiru physically attacked the referee Mr. Mashood Ssali as he entered the dressing room at half time, UPL noted.
Mubiru was found guilty of violating article 30, clause 2 and 3 of the FUFA Competitions Rules 2016/17 which provides that, ‘A participant shall at all times act in the best interests of the game and shall not act in any manner which is improper or brings the game into disrepute or use any one, or a combination of; violent conduct, serious foul play, threatening, abusive, indecent or insulting words or behavior.’
Abdallah Mubiru has been given a two match touchline ban for AUPL matches with immediate effect. In addition, he has been fined 300UAs (Shs300.000) payable to the UPL Secretariat before returning to the technical bench.
Without Mubiru, Police face a daunting task on Friday as they face fellow relegation strugglers Kirinya Jinja SSS FC in Jinja and Vipers Sc in Namboole next week.
