KAMPALA – The management of Mukono district based Uganda Premier League side Kyetume FC is not taking any chances in their bid to survive relegation.
Just days after replacing their head coach – Alex Isabirye with his boss, Jackson ‘Mia Mia’ Mayanja –The Slaughters – came out strongly on Thursday to ‘instill’ professionalism into their team as a couple of players in defender – Julius Ntambi and goalkeeper, Joel Mutakubwa earned, separate indefinite suspensions.
The club management, according to memo, loitering on various social media platforms, accuse the duo of exhibiting unprofessional conduct during the team’s humiliating 2-4 loss to bottom placed Kitara FC in the Uganda Premier League game, played away in Masindi on Tuesday.
In this particular fixture, Kyetume took the lead through Nicholas Kasozi – 15 minutes into the game but Nathan Oloro levelled matters 14 minute to half time. Oloro, who netted the other three additional goals for his team -Kitara, extended the hosts score-line to 2-1 on the 53rd minute mark, before Sharif Saaka brought Kyetume back into the game, nine minutes later.
But Oloro wasn’t done yet on the evening as he added his name onto the score card on the 79th and 88 minutes to write-off The Slaughters; and possibly injuring the team’s management, who reacted with a suspension onto the duo, especially after goalkeeper – Mutakubwa had received marching orders, while Ntambi walked-off the pitch following a knock to leave he Kyetume side with only nine players in the same game.
“We regret to inform the public that the following players have been suspended indefinitely by the club management following unprofessional conduct displayed by the players in our game against Kitara in Masindi,’ reads the memo dated April 29.
“The club has notified the coaching department to stop the players from conducting further training as investigations are under going,” the memo concludes.
