Frustrated Express FC fans have gone through hell already and with their side freely giving away points to fellow Uganda Premier League outfits, some fans have called for head coach, Shafiq Bisaso to step down.

A section of Express fans pressure group that also pushed hard for the stepping down of former Club Chairperson, Hon. Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi have now turned their guns to Coach Bisaso requesting for his immediate resignation before their side is relegated to the FUFA Big League.

With 20 games already played this season, Express alias the 'Red Eagles' are still at the rock bottom of the table with just 16 points, two and three behind fellow relegation bound Proline FC and Masavu FC respectively.

Express lost 4-3 to Police FC over the weekend at Mandela National Stadium, Nambole albeit taking a 1-2 break time lead and with such performance, a good percentage of cheer leaders have urged the former SC Villa tactician to step down for the benefit of the club.

''Yes, let the coach be fired because he has failed to turn things around. The team will be better if he steps down,'' Michael Lukyamuzi, one of the Express fans noted.

Just like Lukyamuzi, a section of Express fans have also backed the idea of Bisaso's resignation urging that it is the only solution left for 'Red Eagles' to 'cheat' relegation.

Some fans however claim that, Express deserve to be relegated so that they can re-organize themselves from the second tier league.

Others point fingers at the club administration who have failed to put their differences aside for the betterment of the club.

''It is already too late for Express to escape the axe, the club administration should take a good portion of the blame and this should be a good learning lesson,'' Ronnie Owenja, an express fan noted.

After the exit of Nakiwala as club chairperson, there was hope that the post-Nakiwala era would bring back glory to the camp but there has been no change so far.

Bisaso was named Express coach in November last year after being shown exit by SC Villa in February 2017.

Bisaso and his then assistant, Godfrey Ssekweyama were shown the Villa door after their side led a two goal lead slip away from them against Lweza FC.
