Da Costa Duarte Jorge Miguel is the new head coach of Vipers Sports Club on a three-year contract.

Vipers SC announced 47year old Miguel, who played for FC Porto among other clubs was appointed on Tuesday.

Vipers SC president Lawrence Mulindwa said that arrival of the coach was appropriate with their growth as a club.

“We are expanding in form of infrastructure and physically. So we found it necessary to expand and strengthen our technical wing with an experienced coach like Jorge Da Costa,” Mulindwa said while unveiling the coach.

“He is very much interested in youth systems. It is not the first time he has been to Uganda. We have been patient because we interviewed him five years ago,” he added.

Miguel will be assisted by Richard Wasswa and Edward Golola. Their first assignment together will be Saturday’s CAF Confederation Cup clash with against Platinum Stars FC.

Miguel said he will want to perform to ensure he keeps the job.

“I am very glad to be here and be coach of Vipers. I am no longer just the Portuguese guy, I am coach of Vipers. I want to work very hard from first day to win. I have to do my job not be here for one, two three months,” Miguel.
