Mike Mutebi has clarified he isn’t joining champions Vipers SC despite rumours that have persisted since August.

The KCCA manager, for the first time talked about the reports in public on Friday last week admitting he met Vipers supremo Lawrence Mulindwa but for the talk wasn’t about leaving KCCA.

“I’m the KCCA manager but that doesn’t stop me from conversing with people that have contributed to Ugandan football,” said Mutebi in a press briefing on Friday.

“I had a chat with Lawrence (Mulindwa) on how far Vipers have progressed and I believe it is from that meeting that the rumour spread.

The former Maroons and SC Villa coach added that he wants to see over six clubs orderly for the good of the game in the country revealing that he also used to have similar chats with former SC Villa president Ben Immanuel Misagga.

“I’m not looking for a job. We need more than six clubs in order to develop and I will continue (meeting with key stakeholders) and I have done the same with the likes of Ben Misagga (while still SC Villa president.

Mulindwa is one of the few individuals all over the world that owns a stadium and Mutebi picked him out for praise in regards to his contribution to the game.

“I don’t want to sound praises but I think Mulindwa has done something (for football development); he has constructed a stadium which few can sacrifice to do.

“We have always talked about past football leaders but they have done nothing but in a space of 15 years but he has a lot. I’m talking as an adviser not as Vipers coach.

Nevertheless, in a private interview with the gaffer, he said that in football, anything can happen.
