KCCA FC are expected to come next season guns blazing after failing to defend their league crown, losing the title to Vipers, in a season that was ended prematurely by FUFA due to Covid19 pandemic.
The Lugogo based side has been in the news of recent after Mike Mutebi’s remarks in Daily Monitor about axing a couple of players. This promises to be a crucial season for the gaffer.
With a possible exit of Muzamir Mutyaba, Mike Mutyaba, Saddam Juma, Simon Sserunkuma, Nicholas Kasozi, Jackson Nunda and Erisa Ssekisambu in mind, we have drafted a possible lineup of how the 13-time champions may look next season.
The list excludes the said players in question, but we have included the reported additions.
The reported signings include Dissan Galiwango who will be reuniting with his former captain John Revita, Villa’s Charles Lwanga, Ashraf Mugume, Proline’s Bright Anukani, Maroons’ Pius Obuya and Mbarara’s Brian Aheebwa.
Charles Lukwago looks unsettled and close sources have reported that he is not in good books with the gaffer. The club will also be welcoming back Tom Ikarah from a season long loan. But nonetheless, we are not taking any chance for a position in goal.
We have made just one change in the back-line: Mustafa Kizza has been linked to Vipers, but a deal overseas has been in the pipeline and the player may not be with the club next season. With Revita’s return date from injury unknown, Filbert Obenchan may play a huge part.
Anukani, the young magician, is expected to play right behind the forwards, a free role with an assurance that Gift Ali is manning the middle of the park and providing a curtain to the back-line.
Obuya and Aheebwa will lead a new looking KCCA FC front.
As its a norm, KCCA FC are likely to promote a couple of players from their Junior team, with goalscoring duo of Jerome Otim and Oscar Mawa very likely to get the nod.
