Why Denis Iguma’s transfer to KCCA is likely to fall through


Uganda Cranes utility player Denis Iguma could see his pending move to Lugogo hit a dead end because he doesn’t command a good relationship with the club manager Mike Mutebi.

Iguma should be a relish for any football coach in Uganda but it may not be the case with KCCA’s Mutebi.

“Iguma should have signed for KCCA by now but the manager doesn’t like him. He says the player is indisciplined.”

A close but undisclosed source intimated to Swift Sports.

It should be remembered that the Mutebi-Iguma working relationship died out about eight years ago when the latter was SC Villa team captain and the former was the head coach.

In one of the league games, Iguma rebelled against Mutebi’s tactics and instructed his teammates to shift to a back four defense from Mutebi’s famous back three.

The immensely talented Cranes player furthermore walked off a training session opposing his coach’s tactics claiming they were wrong.

It was such a poor working relationship that prompted the versatile defender to make a transfer to SC Victoria University, a team that played in a lower division league by then.

Eight seasons down the road, Iguma has had a chance to sign for the Lugogo based side but the manager believes otherwise.

Iguma is currently a free agent after successfully recovering from a career-threatening knee injury sustained early last year.

He has also been on the transfer wishlist of URA FC, Egyptian side Ismailia SC, Kuwait’s Al Shabab and Kazma SC, a team he last played before the long lay off. In fact, he nearly signed for SC Villa, URA and Ismailia SC in the January transfer window.

Iguma has previously featured Al Ahed and Bekka SC in Lebanon, SC Villa and the defunct SC Victoria University.
