The uncompromising KCCA head coach Mike Mutebi has cut into his “big headed” striker Mohammad Shaban in a skathing attack on the player’s lack of proper professional discipline.
The manager expressed his disapproval because of the player’s recent behaviour that saw him dropped for the Uganda cup finals that KCCA won courtesy of a Julius Poloto header in their victory over league champions Vipers SC.
A furious Mutebi did not mince his words in the criticism of his marverick striker
“It is so sad that Shaban was brought up badly, that he does not know what to do to the extent that he does not respect his job and has no value for it”.
“It is so surprising that ever since he came back from national team he has never featured in any training session”
” I am not so surprised that he is behaving so that is how most Ugandan players in all clubs are behaving thinking that they are so special yet they are incostitent”
On his next move towards the striker, Mutebi said,
” I have tried my best to work on him change as I had promised but it seems I have failed because of his personality and I cannot rely on him.”
” I saw him from the age of 12 and his father asked me to help him in and outside football but I am not going to hide it that seriously I have failed out on him”
” But since he can not give out on pitch then what can I do he, has failed to do what he was brought for “.
A disappointed Mutebi concluded.
Shaban did not feature in the Uganda Cup final and he last featured for KCCA in the final game of the league as they were playing Police FC at Mandela National Stadium,Namboole.
