KCCA FC head coach Mike Hillary Mutebi has blasted the Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) for inviting his player Brian Majwega to the national team when he has not been at the club in the last four weeks.
“This is absolute rubbish and this is the wrong way things have been done in Ugandan football,” a bitter Mutebi said during a press briefing at the KCCA FC’s Philip Omondi Stadium on Tuesday.
The development comes after Majwega vanished from KCCA FC and has now been training with the Uganda Cranes team preparing for a regional trip and the 2018 Africa Nations Championship qualifier against South Sudan.
When our reporter tried to reach the national coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic to comment on the matter, he was not picking his known mobile phone. Interestingly the FUFA technical director, Asuman Lubowa told this publication that there is nothing wrong because the coach knows why he invited the player. “That is Mutebi’s opinion,” added Lubowa.
KCCA FC is currently preparing for a crucial group A CAF Confederations Cup tie away to Club Africain (Tunisia) on Friday. The coach made it clear that Majwega will never play for KCCA FC again if Mutebi is still the head coach. “He must come back and apologise, but he will not play for us,” added the coach.
Majwega joined KCCA FC a year ago on a two year deal, but has been struggling to get playing time. He was released by Tanzania’s Simba Sports Club in 2016 after another Tanzanian club Azam FC had also terminated his contract.
