Former Asante Kotoko SC coach Samuel Paa Kwesi Fabin has been announced the new head coach of Uganda U17.
The former Ghana U17 coach has signed a year deal with FUFA with an option to renew at the end of his spell.
Fabin was unveiled on Wednesday at the FUFA House in Mengo during a press conference by FUFA President Moses Magogo.
“I therefore take this moment to announce Fabin Kwesi Samuel as the new head coach of the U17 national team. He has experience with such teams having coached the Ghana U17 national team. We therefore welcome you to Uganda.” Mr. Magogo said.
“We have had the position of the U17 National team head coach vacant and as FUFA, we looked for someone who has experience with the young players, a person who has contacts. Currently the market in Europe looks at young players.”
The 60-year old will be guiding the Uganda team at the U17 AFCON which kicks-off in Tanzania in April.
Fabin has had stints with Heart of Lions, Inter Allies FC, Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko SC in his career.
He led Ghana to the final of the U17 AFCON in Gabon in 2017 and also guided the team to the FIFA U17 World Cup in India in 2017.
