Former KCCA Football Club coach Mike Hilary Mutebi has revealed his memorable moments during his five-year tenure at the 13-time Uganda Premier League Champions.
Mutebi was earlier this week relieved of his duties following a rough patch yielding unsatisfying results in the ongoing 2020/2021 season.
While speaking to KFM on Saturday, the soft spoken coach reflected on his memorable times at the club.
“Loosing 4-3 to Al Ahly (2018 CAF Champions League group stage) away in Egypt is one of my greatest memories because we played well and lost decently to continental giants and our performance was satisfying,” Mutebi said.
Lawrence Bukenya, Peter Magambo and Allan Okello scored for KCCA in a tense affair at the Borg El Arab Stadium in Alexandria as the Kasassiro Boys failed to advance to the quarterfinals of the contest.
Mutebi also recalled “hitting Al Ahly 2-0 in the first leg at the Mandela National stadium in Namboole” as another memorable moment during his reign at Lugogo.
Midfielder Sadam Juma and former skipper Timothy Dennis Awany scored for the Kasassiro Boys who finished 3rd in group A with six points.
The 2018/2019 league winner who is taking a sabbatical, believes Allan Okello (now at Paradou AC, Algeria) was his best player during his 5 years and nine months of serving from the MTN Omondi stadium.
Mutebi highly rates his successor Morley Byekwaso whom he believes is “a wonderful man who is ready and eager to learn and can take the club forward.”
Under his stewardship, KCCA FC lifted three UPL titles, two Uganda Cups, four super cups and one CECAFA clubs cup, making him the most successful manager in the Club’s history.
