KCCA FC tactician Mike Mutebi claims that he supports the StarTimes Uganda Premier League season to be settled on pitch.
The Kasasiro Boys are still second on the table behind Vipers SC in the 16-team league table and Mutebi wants them to see out the remaining five top-flight matches played
However, he is open to the laws of the game applying to decide the championship now if the situation fails to improve.
“It would be sporting sweet to complete the season, and as you know, we are still competitive,” Mutebi was quoted saying by Daily Monitor.
“But the rules say if 75 percent of the games have been played, the leader of the table is the champion.”
“So Vipers are champions if we end today. I have no problem with that, but it would be nice to finish the season, and I’m happy to hear both Fufa and UPL want it that way,” he added.
Mutebi has also dismissed suggestions of possible fixture congestion and that the league’s resumption could hurt players.
“Maybe other clubs will struggle but it will not affect us as KCCA, we condition our players and we are used to playing two games in five days,” he noted.
The gaffer also claims that this has been a mediocre season both for them and Vipers. KCCA are second on the table, four points behind Vipers who are on 54 points.
KCCA players are fully fit
Despite being in lockdown, Mutebi went on to say that KCCA FC players are fully fit because they train from their respective residences.
“At least I can speak for KCCA players. Our fitness coaches gave our players training programs and each player is supposed to send in their workout videos for follow-ups. It’s been happening in Europe, now it’s happening here.”
“The break is a good thing for Ugandan players because there is now a positivity of knowing that you players can do things on your own,” he noted.
