Bakashaba Donald, a student from Uganda Christian University Mukono topped the monthly leader board to win the UGX 1,500,000 prize money and a DSTV Walka 7 showing that he has the football knowledge to take on the likes of Roberto Di Matteo as a world-class football manager.
Bakashaba Donald picked his dream team and scored 384 points to emerge the Guinness Football Manager of the Month in October 2013. “Am overwhelmed by this and I shall continue to play because the reward is real” said Bakashaba Donald.
The Manager of the week awards went to Andrew Mwanguhya, Kabuye Douglas, Clovis Tinka, and Olivia Namiyonga who will be awarded DSTV Walka 3.5 and a crate of Guinness each.
Speaking at the awards ceremony, Guinness Brand Manager Phoebe Nakabazzi said, “I congratulate Bakashaba Donald, our GUINNESS FOOTBALL MANAGER of the month of October! It’s a great honor to win the Manager of the Month title and we are excited to continue awarding those that put in the effort to play and earn points.”
“As well as the Manager of the Month, we will also be rewarding fans with big prizes for the Manager of the Week, the Best Performing Monthly League and the Best Performing Season League”, she added.
GUINNESS FOOTBALL MANAGER was launched in August by Italian footballer and Champion League winning manager, Roberto Di Matteo, when he visited Uganda. Each week, Di Matteo selects his very own ‘Player Made of More’ – the player he believes has made the most significant contribution in that week’s matches and any managers with that player in their fantasy team, will be awarded extra points.
