Jose Mourinho’s ways of handling players is totally different from Jurgen Klopp’s yet both ways historically has resulted into performances of players much as to some players it has gone otherwise.
In Uganda, Mike Mutebi could be Mour’s synonym and whoever has worked under questionably the best Ugandan coach Mutebi is a victim of learning from a tough teacher of the game.
Additionally journalists have been audience of Mutebi’s toughness in the way he responds to questions and gives analysis of his own players especially when their performance does not reach to his expectation.
Astonishingly amongst players the KCCA coach has worked with, former Kasasiro boy Benjamin Ochan says he misses Mike Mutebi and cited the gaffer’s toughness as a reason.
When asked during an interview in Sanyuka TV about persons he misses at KCCA, the Entebbe born unbelievably revealed Mike Mutebi.
“Truthfully speaking, it might sound weird but Mike. To most of the players at KCCA he’s a tough guy but for me he is tough in a good way. He is a perfectionist, if he expects a lot from you, you have to deliver. And tomorrow if you deliver below par, he’s going to be on your case. To me it was more of fun. I really miss him. I will always appreciate that he’s pushed me somewhere that people do good to you, you need to appreciate.”
Ochan who had a fruitful time with KCCA during his three years spell left the Lugogo side to join Zambian side, Kabwe Warriors on the 14th February 2018.
