KCCA FC are contemplating on a decision to sack coach Mike Mutebi, inside sources at Lugogo have told The-SportsNation.
It is said that the gaffer has fallen out with his top bosses over issues of “disrespect and arrogance.”
Reports say that the gaffer has a sense of “self importance” and has on many occasions ridiculed many senior members at the Club when asked to explain some decisions.
The recent release of players has also led the fallout between the manager and the club’s board.
Efforts to reach the club for a comment have been futile.
KCCA FC and the manager have been on-and-off over various issues including another fall out when the gaffer arrived late to miss the bus to Mbarara City FC, a game they lost and consequently gave Vipers SC more command in last season’s title race.
Mutebi, two seasons back, was strongly linked with a move to Vipers SC.
His utterances in the media have left the club paying for damages, including when he said that KCCA FC has in the past had a budget for referees to fix games.
The officials at KCCA have for long not taken a final decision over sacking Mutebi fearing the worst for the club’s future if Mutebi leaves.
Mutebi, in his third stint at the club, has won six major titles including Three league, Two Uganda Cups and CECAFA Kagame Championship.
He has notably made KCCA FC a region’s powerhouse after the club clinched a historical slot in CAF Champions League groups.
The club has exported players in recent past including Geoffrey Sserunkuma, Patrick Kaddu, Allan Kyambadde, Allan Okello, Timothy Awany among others.
Tough Decision To Take
KCCA and Mike Mutebi have disagreed over various issues and the fallout signs have been there despite trying to hide it.
This time, the sacking looks inevitable but it will be a hard letter to write from the top bosses.
Everyone, from the players and other supporting staff, has confessed that Mutebi is not a simple guy due to his pride and character but his bosses at KCCA FC have over the years tried to keep the relationship professional.
It will be a big blow for both parties especially to the club that will have taken over ten steps back.
It was a very tough last season for coach Mutebi who was confronted by club fans over what they called “poor tactics” and falling out with players like Nicholas Kasozi.
Mutebi had made a name for himself at the club he has coached before in 1996/97 and in 2004.
He has coached the Uganda Cranes, Miracle, Simba, Maroons and SC Villa.
