But despite his spiteful exit, Nabwire showered his former coach with some soothing words, despite that fact that he worked under ‘difficult’ situation.
“Respect-Thanks for what you’ve done for us. Am grateful for everything you’ve taught me and all the trust you’ve put in me no matter how difficult the situation. All the best coach to the next stop,” said Nabwire, who has been a joy to watch under Zapata.
Zapata, who will be heading to the United States as he ponders his next move replied: “Maybe I'm a loser because we lost Shield Cup semifinal, but when the recognition comes from the players that I worked with...it makes me feel special and proud!”
