When KCCA signed left back Isaac Muleme at the start of the season, a section of football pundits and fans alike expected him to offer tough competition for a slot in the team with first choice Joseph Ochaya.
It wasn’t to be as Ochaya kept his place until recently when he left the club for Lusaka Dynamos, in Zambia.
This proved a good chance for the Muleme, arguably the best left back in the country during his SC Villa days.
But the defender, who also had a stint at SC Victoria University, has failed to break into Mike Mutebi’s side and the gaffer revealed that the player has failed to raise his game.
“When you sign an experienced player, you want him to get out of problems,” Mutebi said in a press conference ahead of Bright Stars visit on Tuesday. “Has he done so? Never,” an amused Mutebi added.
Muleme isn’t the only senior player yet to cement a place in KCCA team under Mutebi.
Others are four-time league top scorer Robert Ssentongo who is third in pecking order in the strike force behind man of the moment Geoffrey Sserunkuma and Nigerian import, Sulaimon Akinyemi.
