๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฌ Veteran stars shown the door as Mike Mutebi overhauls KCCA

KCCA manager Mike Mutebi has embarked on squad overhaul that will see several first-team players shown the door at the club. 

Ugandan publication Daily Monitor reports Mutebi will target injury-prone players and those that are deemed as deadwood at the club for the big axe. 

Reports indicate that midfielders Sadam Juma and Muzamir Mutyaba, as well as forward Mike Mutyaba, goalkeeper Jamal Malyamungu, and winger Simon Serunkuma, are among those earmarked for the chop. 

Others on the exit list include Nicholas Kasozi, who went AWOL in January, as well as Jackson Nunda and former Gor Mahia striker Erisa Sekisambu.

Mutebi said that he has already identified and signed "young and ambitious players" as a replacement for those shown the door.  

"We have already notified these players that they are not in our plans and we wish them well. It is only left to the club CEO (Anisha Muhoozi) to give them farewell letters," Mutebi told Monitor Sports. 

The tactician explained why each of the affected players was let go after a season in which KCCA finished second to Vipers in the league campaign that ended prematurely due to coronavirus pandemic.
