Highly respected Ugandan football coach Mike Mutebi is yet to find a fitting coaching role ever since he parted ways with Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA FC) on mutual understanding in March this year.
Mutebi, who spent five year at the Lugogo-based club, a period during which the club was most successful in its history after winning 13 trophies including one CECAFA Club Championship in 2019.
It has come to our knowlegde that Mutebi might still be enjoying a break from drawing coaching tactics up to at least next seson, because information coming in indicates that he has turned down a coaching job that was even in “outside countries.”
According to reports, Mutebi was offered an opportunity to become the next coach of Tanzanian side Azam FC and even held initial talks and interviews with the club’s management but to their dismay, he turned down their offer.
We have not yet established the reasons why Mutebi withdrew from the talks, but they could range from salary to having full control over player recruitment and squad management among others. From his time at KCCA FC, we have known that Mutebi wants to know every detail around players from transfers to deployment onto the pitch.
Mutebi, 51, is believed to be on top of the list of coaches should the Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) opt to go for a local-based coach for the Uganda Cranes’ job.
