Argentine coach Pablo Pedro Pasculli could return to Uganda for a second stint as national coach.

Pasculli was selected ahead of Togolese Tchcanile Bonna and Slovenian Vosajh Scheich for a 12-month contract, worth US$36,000.

"We have selected Pasculli and are waiting for his response on whether he wants the job or not," said Uganda FA spokesman Haruna Mawanda.

Pasculli took brief charge of the Cranes during the qualifying series for the 2004 Nations Cup.

But he left before a crucial match against Ghana, after receiving news that his father was ill.

Ugandan officials said they would make an offer to Bonna or Scheich should the 1986 World Cup winner decline to take up the job.

The Cranes are expected to play against Mauritius in two weeks time.
