However, information revealed that he has on several occasions been indicted for match-fixing. And he’s received several bans from different countries over his unprofessional behavior.
Mike Mutebi, therefore, wondered why hire such a character. The ex-Cranes international was believed to have been one of the local coaches who applied for the job but he didn’t.
According to the Ugandan coach, he had the opportunity to coach the Cranes from 2004. However, he didn’t apply for the job because he believes he’s done enough to earn the spot. Therefore, they should be the ones to look for him.
Additionally, he also said that he doesn’t think FUFA can afford former national team captain, Ibrahim Sekagya. Now coaching New York Red Bulls II, Sekagya’s name was amongst those mentioned for the job.
“I would not sign someone who has been found guilty of match-fixing. I didn’t apply for the Uganda Cranes job in 2004, you must head hunt me for the role because I have done enough to qualify for the job. Also, I don’t think the federation can afford a coach like Ibrahim Ssekagya,” said Coach Mutebi.
On his time at KCCA FC, he said that he left because the club’s board tried to interfere with his work. And they inadequately prepared for his exit since it was abrupt.
This could be the problem why the club has been struggling since then. He added that his time with the Kasasiro Boys is done and dusted and can never reconsider it.
Furthermore, he said that it also seems there is a lot of political interference there. However, Mutebi advised them to hire another coach, Abdullah Mubiru, saying that he understands the club very well.
