Former KCCA FC head coach Mike Mutebi has accepted to join reigning Uganda Premier League champions Vipers SC on a reported three-year deal. The 51-year-old is expected to start work as the 2021/2022 UPL season commences after agreeing to take charge of the St. Mary’s Kitende based outfit ugsports.net understands.

Vipers FC has been closely keeping tabs on Mutebi since his departure from KCCA after a mutual agreement to terminate his contract back in March.

He spent five hugely successful years at Lugogo winning three league titles, two Uganda Cups, four super cups and one CECAFA clubs cup.

 

In the same period, he managed to make 247 appearances on the touchline recording 152 wins, 56 draws and suffering defeat just 39 times.

His inclination towards grooming youngsters into the first team and his “beautiful” style of play is what has always drawn the biggest admiration from the Vipers director Dr Lawrence Mulindwa.

He replaces Fred Kajoba who in May left the club citing preference of his national team goalkeeping job over his head coaching role.

The league is currently on indefinite suspension by FUFA following the Presidential directives to halt all sports activities for 42 days as a means to curb the spread of COVID-19.

At the time of the suspension, Vipers had 56 points in third, two points adrift of leaders Express FC with four games left and just one behind second-placed side URA FC.

They were as well among the last four sides in the Uganda Cup with the draws yet to be conducted. Express, Police FC and BUL FC are the other sides left in the Uganda Cup.
