KCCA’s title hopes have been hit with yet another blow after MRI tests revealed that forward Mike Mutyaba could be out for the rest of the season with an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury according to Daily Monitor.
The Lugogo based side’s joint leading scorer on 10 goals with Patrick Kaddu was substituted in their one-all StarTimes Uganda Premier League draw against Vipers after he had scored the equalizer to salvage a point for the hosts at Lugogo last Thursday.
Mutyaba however, is worried that his season which has been brilliant could be done despite having five games to end.
“Honestly, I don’t think am going to play any of those games,” Mutyaba said before adding. “I got a serious injury against Vipers, an ACL in my left knee, I didn’t even know,” he added.
KCCA’s physio Ivan Ssewanyana, however, couldn’t confirm the extent of Mutyaba’s injury but says they will wait for a scan on the player.
“The scan on the player was done on Friday and we give it some time before we can know all the details. The results are now out but I’ll first see the player and we assess the whole situation to know how much he will be out,” Ssewanyana said.
The former Vipers and Express star has scored 13 goals for KCCA this season, ten of them in League and the other three were scored in Stanbic Uganda Cup.
