It Was a Mistake to Join AS Kigali – Mutebi on Failed Rwanda Spelll


Former KCCA FC coach Mike Hillary Mutebi has opened up on his failed short stint at AS Kigali in Rwanda.

Mutebi joined AS Kigali in January 2022 coming out of a sabbatical he had opted for after leaving the Kasasiro boys in March 2021 but his spell was cut short after just two months at the Kigali-based side.

He has now dubbed his move to Rwanda as a ‘mistake’ he regrets taking in his career.

Mutebi said that AS Kigali had a couple of aged players and claimed that it’s one of the problems he faced as he tried to build a new team of young players with a ‘unique style of play.’

“It was an accident by me to join AS Kigali,” Mutebi told NBS during the Morning Show.

“I found a lot of old players. I did not do enough research about the players at the club but as a coach alongside my assistant Jackson Mayanja, we tried to make things right but    we were never appreciated by the management.”

He added: “I tried to do things right but the management was not appreciative and the two months I spent there I never enjoyed them.” Said Mike Mutebi.

Mutebi who penned down a two years deal, only managed to stay at the club 13 times – winning three games and seven draws. He is currently back in the country and open to all any other coaching offers besides returning to KCCA FC!

“If I am approached by an club I am available to do what I can do better but my chapter at KCCA FC is closed case I will not return there,”Mutebi concluded.
