Paa Kwesi Fabin lands Uganda coaching job

Former Asante Kotoko coach Samuel Paa Kwesi Fabin has been named coach of the U-17 male national football team of Uganda.


Paa Kwesi Fabin has signed a year deal with the Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) to coach its U-17 male national football team, but subject to an extension when his contract runs out.

He was unveiled on Wednesday at 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 gaffer’s last job was with Kumasi Asante Kotoko- he shocked the football fraternity when he announced his resignation from the Porcupine Warriors.

Paa Kwesi Fabin has extensive experience, having coached clubs like Heart of Lions, Inter Allies FC, Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko SC in his career.

He also spent over six years with the national male U-17 football team of Ghana.
