Although he dismissed the reports about his possible move to join them, rumours have it that former Kampala City Council Authority football club (KCCA FC) manager Mike Mutebi agreed to join Vipers SC as their head coach on a three year contract.
This deal comes in a few months after Mutebi partied ways with KCCA and it is said that he was fired.
The coaching role at Vipers fell vacant after the club’s head coach Fred Kajoba resigned to have time to concentrate on national team Uganda Cranes.
Mutebi will start work when the 42-day-lockdown is over and will be in charge of Vipers come the 2021/2022 Star Times Uganda Premier League season.
Meanwhile, Mutebi turned down an opportunity to coach one of the clubs in Kigali Rwanda recently because he wanted to stay home and work from Kampala, Uganda.
The 51 year old won three league titles, two Uganda Cups, four Super League cups and one CECAFA Clubs cup during his time as head of the Lugogo based football club.
The Star Times Uganda Premier League was suspended when President Museveni announced a second lockdown due to the second wave of Covid-19 that has hit the country badly.
At the time of the suspension, Vipers had 56 points in third, two points adrift of leaders Express FC with four games left and just one behind second-placed side URA Sports Club.
