Former kCCA head coach Mike Mutebi looks set to bounce back into management according to news filtering through.
The no-nonsense gaffer makes a short trip to league’s defending Champions Vipers SC after agreeing a lucrative 3-year contract, deep-throat club sources can confirm.
Having spent a trophy-laden half-decade with the Kasasiro boys, Mutebi drawed the curtains on his time at Lugogo in March. With three league titles, two Uganda Cups and four super cups, the outspoken Mike was replaced by his number two, Morley Byekwaso who had an impressive stint with the Uganda Hippos at the U20 AFCON.
Known for always emphasising his team’s play “their way” whatever the opponent is, he guided KCCA to CECAFA club’s cup triumph and impressive runs in the CAF Champions League.
Vipers are currently third on the log, a pair of points below a resurgent Express FC with 58 points. URA are also in the fray with 57 points as the league went on indefinite suspension following a presidential ban on all sports activities for the next 42 days as a way to mitigate the spread of corona virus.
Fred Kajooba, who took over the reigns from Edward Golola mid last season guided the champions to triumph in familiar circumstances as a lockdown in the country saw FUFA call of the season prematurely and award Vipers the trophy. Kajoba was then relieved of his duties in May as he chose the national goalkeeper coach gig over his management with the Kitende money bags and replaced by his trusted deputy Kiwanuka.
With his tenure set to start at the beginning of the 2021/2022 season, Vipers who are in the semifinals of the Uganda Cup will be looking to secure continental football for their new gaffer to start with.
