KCCA coach rubbishes Chiyangi’s biased refereeing claims
Kampala City Council (KCCA) coach Mike Hillary Mutebi has rubbished Aggrey Chiyangi’s claims that the match officials in their 4-3 CECAFA Kagame semifinal win over the Zambian side were biased and made decisions in favor of KCCA.
Mutebi described the Green Eagles gaffers claims as a ‘rubbish excuse’. Mutebi says the referee was just going his work fairly and believes that the officiating at the tournament has been fantastic.
“We coach always look for a scapegoat, Did he score and they disallowed a goal?. Was the one who told his players to miss a one on one chance? Those rubbish excuses by African coaches you know, The referee was doing his work, I think he was fair. It was a 50/50 affair even if we had lost I would not come here to complain,” he said.
” Always we coach look for escape routes when we have been defeated we always look at the referees most of the times and then also the players. I thought actually the officiating has been excellent, ” he added.
Chiyangi told a press conference following the loss that the referee was not fair and made wrong calls that he could not clarify as mistakes but deliberate.
“The competition has been excellent and the organizers have been excellent in todays game the only thing was the referee even you saw that there was no fair play. We can accept certain things as mistakes but certain things were clear that its what they wanted,” he said.
Uganda U23 midfielder Allan Okello opened the scores barely two minutes into the match following a solo run before unleashing a powerful low shot to beat Sebastian Mwange in goal.
Amity Shamende leveled matters in the 38th minute with a powerful shot from inside the box. Shamende struck just eight minutes into the second stanza to put the Kawale boys in the lead with his second of the match.
Okello who was having a good afternoon struck again eleven minutes from time to send the match into extra time. Substitute Mike Mutyaba put KCCA in the lead in the 98th minute before youngster Anaku Sadat could double the lead making it 4-2. Christopher Chola came from the bench to reduce the deficit a minute to time but KCCA held on to win 4-3.
