I Am Not Worried About Aheebwa’s Form – Mutebi

KCCA FC head Coach Mike Hillary Mutebi says he is not worried about striker, Brian Aheebwa’s poor form as long.

Aheebwa who scored seven goals in his first five games, has not netted since the loss to URA in December.

He joined the Kasasiros from Mbarara City at the start of the season and after looking like a bargain at first, the tables have suddenly turned on him of late.

Speaking ahead of Kyetume FC game, Mutebi says he is contented and is not worried about Aheebwa as long as long as the other are scoring.

“Am contented, the others who are supposed to be vieing for that position are scoring goals, so am not worried. Mutebi said.

“If he (Aheebwa) returns, he has to compete for the position.

The Kasasiro boys have had a good run, scoring twenty goals in the last five games and the Gaffer believes momentum will continue in the next game.

“Like i said, we are not going to worry about our opponents, we only have to care about ourselves and we think that good run will continue.”

Against UPDF FC in their previous game, Mutebi deployed Ashraf Mugume in a more offensive role due to Gift Ali’s return to the team.

Mugume had a good game, scoring one of the six goals when they demolished the army side 6-1.

Mutebi had this to says about Ali’s return to the team

“These are attacking midfielders, Gift’s position makes the team very coherent, very organised, releases the ones in front of him to play, but we wouldn’t say that Mugume is your defensive midfielder, all these are midfielders, even Gift isn’t a defensive midfielder.

“He has really organised us more, you can see when we are attacking, we are attacking systematically and also good defensively.

“So his return has been very good. Mugume has been in the team and we have now to push him in front a little bit and he is performing well and also scoring goals. So why not play him as we wait for these kids that were at the U20 AFCON like Sserwadda. There is finally competition in attacking midfield.

Ahead of Kyetume side, Mutebi says they will continue playing their way.

“We shall continue playing the way we have been playing and try to score more goals. The lads are more confident.

“It’s another club (Kyetume) that has always challenged the status quo so we are going to face another challenge. They are a good side, they may have a little bit of disorganization in management but on the field of play, they have the right players to compete in the league so it’s going to be hard for us but I believe we may have enough to pick good results there.”

KCCA sits in fifth on the log with 23 points from as many games played. They are just five points behind leaders Express going into the last three games of the first round.
