Ibrahim Sekagya

Being entrusted with the responsibility of assistant coach at New York Redbulls II, which plays in the third tier of American football, may not sound like something to write home about but Ibrahim Sekagya is in a better position than just about every other Ugandan coach. Sekagya is exactly where he needs to be at this stage of his coaching career. The Uganda Cranes legend and former Redbulls Salzburg captain is on course to a place on the coaching staff of the New York Redbulls, perhaps even the top job itself, and his current station is exactly the place to build his credentials. Sekagya is no less revered in Redbulls soccer nation than he was as Cranes captain, so that big coaching offer is probably a matter of time.
