Although a whooping seventeen points separate first and seventh placed teams on the Uganda Premier League log, KCCA manager Mike Mutebi says seven teams are still capable of lifting this season’s championship.

Mutebi revealed this ahead of his side’s clash with Police FC on Friday at Namboole three days after the side drew 1-1 with Soana at Kavumba.

“It’s still and has always been open,” said Mutebi, whose side sits second with 42 points despite playing three games less than table topping SC Villa. “The competition is very stiff you can see. There is a lot of improvement from last season from the way clubs are playing,” he added.

So, like you said, we are in there. We are the defending champions but we are going to struggle and work hard to see that we defend the championship but it won’t be easy. There are seven clubs in this race that can win the league.

Praise for Mubiru

Mutebi replaced Abdallah Mubiru at Lugogo and with two meeting for the third time in the campaign, with a fourth possible if KCCA eliminate Kataka in the Uganda Cup, praised his predecessor labeling him a ‘good’ coach.

It’s not going to be easy but like we have said, we have to go out there and perform, try to win which is going to difficult but the aim is to go there and win against an organised team coached by a good coach.

KCCA won the first league 3-0 at Lugogo and target a double over the 2005 champions.
