Mike Mutebi’s much vaunted deal to join Rwandan club Kiyovu SC has scuppered at the eleventh hour, according to sources.
The Former KCCA FC coach was all set to join Kiyovu as the side’s head coach replacing sacked Olivier Karekezi but it is reported that the deal fell through with the sticking point being Financial terms.
The former Cranes coach has done his Covid-19 tests on Monday and was expected to be unveiled this week.
However, in a surprise turn of events, Mutebi and his Kiyovu SC suitors failed to get middle ground.
It is reported that Mutebi, a tough as nails negotiator haggled on his financial demands that Kiyovu deemed way to high with in their means.
Kiyovu has reportedly turned to Former Taifa Stars gaffer Etienne Ndayiragije who is seen as a viable option to the club’s ambitions.
Mutebi became one of the most sought after coaches following his five year glittering spell with KCCA FC which ended at the end of March.
He guided the Kasasiro Boys to top honours with three league titles and two Uganda Cup crowns but he left the club acrimoniously.
In the aftermath of Mutebi’s sacking by the Kasasiro Boys, word was rife, that among other factors, the coach’s huge momentary demands also forced the club top brass think otherwise.
With wide calls that a local coach be given chance to take charge of the Uganda Cranes managerial job, Mutebi’s name will often sprung up while local giants Vipers SC and Tanzanian side Azam FC are also believed to be monitoring Mutebi’s situation.
