KCCA FC head coach Abdallah Mubiru has revealed why he rejected the appointment to take charge of the Crested Cranes as the assistant coach.

In September last year, FUFA had named Mubiru as the replacement for Ayub Khalifah Kiyingi at the Uganda senior women’s team but the tactician rejected the role.

While interacting with SC Villa Worldwide WhatsApp group, Mubiru confessed that he turned down the role due to his religion

“Personally, I don’t watch women football because of my religion. I am not allowed to look at a naked women as by my religion. When the ladies come for training sessions, they remove off their clothes and put on those for training. So, I shunned the role because of my religious beliefs. We are all answerable to the Almighty and personally, I don’t watch women football even at Lugogo, the team I work for has a women football team but I don’t watch it, I am always in office when they are playing. I have no issue with women football but it’s just about my religion.” Said Mubiru

The Crested Cranes are under the stewardship of South African tactician Sheryl Botes.
