Hussein Mbalangu’s position as NEC FC head coach could be untenable at the end of the current Uganda Premier league season.

Despite a bright start in their debut season in the Uganda Premier league, NEC FC hierarchy believe Wakiso Giants’ John Ayala Luyinda is best option to guide the team greater success next season if they decide to part ways with Mbalangu.

Swift Sports Uganda understands that Ayala and NEC FC are close to reaching a compromise.

Mbalangu replaced Michael Skills Lukyamuzi who led the team to the topflight.
