Former Uganda Cranes captain Ibrahim Sekagya has been appointed as the head coach of New York Red Bulls II for their inaugural season in MLS Next Pro. The club management announced the development via its official website on Monday.

The 41yr old Sekagya becomes the third head coach in Red Bulls II history after spending eight seasons as an assistant coach. He takes over after serving for half a year as the interim coach since July 2022 following the exit of former head coach, Gary Lewis.

New York Red Bulls II is an American professional soccer team based in Montclair, New Jersey that plays in the MLS Next Pro, the third tier of the American Soccer Pyramid. It serves as the reserve team for the New York Red Bulls.


Born in Kawempe Kampala, Sekagya started his senior career with Kampala City Council (KCC FC) in 1992, before moving to Argentina in 1998 to try to make a career in football. His first Argentine club was Atletico de Rafaela in the Primera B Nacional.

In 2002, he moved to Ferro Carril Oeste in the Primera B Metropolitana, subsequently helping the team to win the league and secure promotion to the Primera B Nacional. In 2005, he was signed by Arsenal de Sarandi in the Argentine Primera Division, where he spent two seasons.


In June 2007, Sekagya signed a three-year contract with Red Bull Salzburg in the Austrian Bundesliga, and he managed to finish his first season with 34 league appearances to his name, scoring three goals in the process.

In his six seasons at the club, Sekagya appeared in 165 league matches, scored six goals, and helped the club clinch three Austrian Bundesliga titles and one Austrian Cup.
