Respected football coach Sam Timbe has parted ways with local agent Dan Ntale, citing failure to secure a 'better deal as per contractual obligation."
Timbe, who is currently coaching Police FC, signed a two-year contract with Ntale's Jodana Sports Management early this year. But in a letter sent this week, Timbe notified Jodana Sports Management that he has "withdrawn with immediate effect the powers to represent his interests in negotiating and managing all related football matters."
According to the notice, Timbe felt frustrated by Ntale's failure to fulfill his contractual obligations, which included getting him a better deal (than the current one at Police) and pursuing his case filed against Rwanda's Atraco FC in FIFA over payment dispute. Ntale, who manages a number of local coaches like Steven Bogere, Moses Basena and Baker Mbowa, acknowledged Timbe's contract termination.
The former Villa player praised Timbe for showing the "highest sense of professionalism" and wished him the best of luck.
Timbe is one of the best Ugandan coaches. His major successes include four CECAFA club titles with SC Villa, Police, Atraco (Rwanda) and Tanzania's Yanga.
