KCCA FC’s Gift Ali and Muzamiru Mutyaba are without a doubt some of the most technically gifted midfielders of their generation but a lot is yet to come from them according to their manager Mike Mutebi.
Mutebi made the revelation during the post-match press conference after KCCA FC bowed out of the 2018/2019 Total CAF Confederations Cup playoff at the expense of Congolese side Otoho. KCCA FC won the tie at Lugogo 2-0 but lost the aggregate 3-2.
“Gift Ali and Muzamiru Mutyaba are one of the most technical players in that position but they haven’t given me what I expect from them,” Mutebi said.
“They need to do more and I urge some of you close to them to tell them, you too have a role to play” Mutebi emphasized to a packed press room.
Muzamiru Mutyaba has managed three goals in all competitions this season while his counterpart Gift Ali is yet to register any goal but has roped in a couple of assists this season.
Mutebi also sang praises for captain and center back Timothy Awany, insisting he should be regular in the national team.
“Football is open, Awany should be a regular in the national team, he has surely done well, and it’s evident” Mike noted.
Mutebi’s charges now turn the focus on defending the Stanbic Ugandan Cup with a trip to Buhinga to face Tooro United in round of 32.
They are seven points clear at the summit of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League sixteen team log, they have scored 34 goals in the first round.
