Former Uganda Cranes defender Godfrey Walusimbi has revealed his next plans after announcing official announcement from football last week.

Commonly known as “Jaja Walu” in the football circles, the former left back was appearing on NBS Sport TV and said he is headed into coaching.

Walusimbi said he already started mandatory training to become a certified coach.

” I already enrolled for a CAF C coaching license which happened recently and coincidentally I also had a diploma during my playing days in Albania. So I will be a coach after announcing my retirement.” He said.

” I was supposed to retire Uganda Cranes in 2017 but my management convinced me to postpone my retirement until after the 2019 AFCON in Egypt so they had no way to convince me after the 2019 tournament.” He added.

Walusimbi also revealed the toughest opponent he has ever faced during his illustrious football career.

” There was a short guy from Angola. He was called Job. He was very dangerous despite his size.” He sarcastically admitted.

He also named Paul Nkata as his best coach since it was the legendary coach who scouted him from Mpigi and gave me his first chance through the famous Jogoo Young.

Godfrey Walusimbi played for the Uganda Cranes between 2010 and 2019 and inspired a number of budding players in the country.

He also played for SC Villa, Bunamwaya, Gor Mahia, Kaizer Chiefs and Vllazania in Albania.
