Morley Byekwaso is glad to be back home after the former Lugogo club coach and player was named the new assistant manager at KCCA at the close of last week.
The ex-Simba, SCVU and KCCA coach replaces Sam Ssimbwa, who was sacked in April, as Mike Mutebi’s deputy effective immediately.
Famed for his tough physical drills and work ethic, the former midfield star cannot wait to get started working with a man he adores.
“It gives me total joy to work under my (football) ‘father’ (Mutebi),” Byekwaso told the Daily Monitor.
“I believe this father-son relation will reawaken the old passing and attacking KCCA that shook the Ugandan football scene.
“I’m a man who treasures winning trophies. That is what I have set out to achieve on my return to KCCA – a club I treasure deeply.”
Byekwaso played as a midfielder at the former KCC FC between 1992 and 2001. The club were recently renamed KCCA FC.
Mutebi speaks highly of his new side-kick. “He was part of the 1997 golden generation that included Ibrahim Sekagya and Abdullah Mubiru that I prepared to win the league that year,” said Mutebi.
“Even at that time I knew he would make a decent coach and I must admit KCCA is not going to be the same again.” Byekwaso has also coached Ngege, Luzira United and Proline among others.
