2015/16 UPL best coach Mike Ray Mutebi has bashed Friday’s match officials who managed KCCA FC game against Onduparaka FC in Arua implying that their ‘biased officiation’ led to his team’s 2-1 loss.

“Before we conceded, try he was mismanaging all the calls we were supposed to get and eventually you give away a very silly goal which certainly affected us,” Mutebi said.

Muhammad Shaban struck both goals for the caterpillars in the 47th and 60th minute to give the Arua boys their first win in the topflight however Mutebi termed one of the goals ‘silly’.

“The goal affected them (KCCA players) and they started rushing. In the end after we conceded the second, they tried to settle and play better but of course it had entered into their brain that the referee was against them.”

“I am not one who will always look for escape routes but this theatre today I saw the referee. The same pair of referees mismanaged our match against Simba last season. I am not silly to say this are silly, substandard and stupid officiation.”

The champions are still on top of the table despite the loss having accumulated nine points from three wins, one point ahead of Vipers and SC Villa who are in second and third place respectively.

A number of KCCA FC fans travelled to Arua for the mouthwatering clash and their manager feels such game management will provoke violence.

“People are coming back to watch games when the team is playing well and you’re chasing them away. Do we entice fans to start throwing stones because of a man who wants to be the star?” he querried.

KCCA FC will resume training on Tuesday at their grounds in Lugogo to prepare for the next home league assignment against The Saints on Tuesday 20th.
