Former KCCA FC manager Mike Hillary Mutebi was once again tight lipped on what his next move is. This follows his fallout with his former bosses at Lugogo for what he termed as ‘interference’.
Speaking during an interview with KFM Sports, the candid coach refused to confirm what he will be doing next.
Reports have time and again indicated that there is a possibility of taking over Uganda Cranes and Vipers SC but he had none of that.
“There’s no vacancy there (with the Cranes), there is still coach Johnathan McKinstry and Abdallah Mubiru. Let us wait and see,” Mutebi said.
When quizzed about taking over at St. Mary’s Stadium, the 51-year-old was quick to rubbish any talk saying; “Vipers have a coach in (Fred) Kajoba and I have not been approached.” When pressed harder, he added: “Let us wait and see.”
When asked about his chances of taking over in case the job presents itself, ‘Let us wait and see’ was the consistent response from him even when asked deeper about considering a sabbatical before any other coaching role.
However, Mutebi confirmed contact from international clubs but was adamant to comment further with ‘let us wait and see’ yet again dominating the closing stages of the interview.
The sanguine and self-assured manager also suggested it was high time local coaches were given a chance with the Cranes as he believes their foreign based counterparts come with nothing different and special.
“It is high time they gave us a chance. We are not different from them, we can do the international basic practices.”
“Sam Ssimbwa, Jackson Mayanja, Moses Basena, all these experienced coaches can do the job if given the chance,” added Mutebi to further stress the options available.
