Mike Hillary Mutebi, who is undoubtedly Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) FC’s most successful manager after winning a plethora of trophies, has been sacked by the club.
According to a statement released on the club’s website, KCCA said that the termination of Mutebi’s contract was by consent, adding that, “The Club recognises his immense contribution in making KCCA FC the leading club in Uganda and wishes him well in his future endeavours.”
During his five-year tenure at the Lugogo-based club, Mutebi won 13 trophies including one CECAFA Clubs Cup, three Uganda Premier League (UPL) trophies, two Uganda Cups, four Super cups, one Independence Cup, one Super 8 cup, and one Phillip Omondi Invitational Tournament.
It is also worth noting that in recent years, KCCA FC has been consistently representing Uganda in the continental club competitions of CAF Champions League and CAF Confederations Cup.
With that success, Mutebi’s replacement Morley Byekwaso has big shoes to fill, although commentators feel he will use his previous success of guiding the Uganda Hippos to the Total U-20 AFCON final when they lost out to Ghana, to try to change the club’s performance in the second round of the UPL.
KCCA are currently fourth on the table with 27 points, 9 behind league leaders URA.
