KAMPALA City Council Football Club wants to have yet another try at a Danish coach.
Jan Fray, arrived in the country on Wednesday and is in talks with KCC executive. If Fray takes the KCC job, he will be the second Dane to have handled the side. In 1998 Flemming Jacobsen coached the Lugogo side.
“If his terms are favourable, we shall certainly take him on,” said KCC secretary Gideon Karyoko. The Dane might be named technical director, with Sam Ssimbwa as coach.
Fray, who has a coaching diploma and was a youth international before, developed an interest in Ugandan football after KKL’s recent sparkling show in Sweden and Denmark.
“It meant Uganda had very talented footballers,” said Fray, before he watched a KCC training session yesterday.
“Their only weakness is that they make many mistakes. That is what I want to correct in Uganda.”

A former KCC official has threatened to lead a break-away faction from the club if serious reforms are not instituted to help stop the declining fortunes at Lugogo.
Aldrine Nsubuga, who says KCC is in a constitutional crisis, wants a club that respects all stake holders. “I will not be part of a club that is not constitutional, democratic and does not respect me.”
Speaking on Voice of Africa’s night sports programme on Wednesday, Nsubuga called for an urgent general assembly.
Nsubuga was supposed to be hosted with KCC sports officer Tom Lwanga and club vice chairman Godfrey Kiseka who opted out at the last minute.
He said the constitution talks of two entities, a Kampala City Council Football Club and Kampala Football Club and wondered which one the fans or executive are registered with.
He quoted article 13(d) of the same document. The article says that the executive shall serve for a two-year term.
The current KCC executive, headed by James Ssegane, was elected in 1998.
He scoffed at claims that he is still a KCC executive and is contravening the principle of collective responsibility.
“Constitutionally I ceased being one in 1998 after being absent from three consecutive meetings,” he said. Ends
