Kampala Capital City manager Mike Mutebi has downplayed rumours that the back-to-back Ugandan Premier League champions are in a crisis.
KCCA lost their first game of the season against SC Villa at Masaka Recreational Stadium on Saturday.
The Lugogo-based side slipped down the table, but the man in charge at the club insists the campaign is not different from the last two in which they emerged champions.
In their next encounter, KCCA will host relegation candidates Masavu on Saturday, November 4 at the StarTimes Stadium.
“When you look back at the last two championships we have won, the events are a bit similar, dropping points but the opposition not taking the advantage,” Mutebi told the club website.
“We are lying sixth on the table, four points behind the leaders, a couple of good results will get us where we should be and am confident we shall get there, it’s just a matter of time.
“We must start winning games but at the same time playing with the right identity which we are trying to instill in the team and there is progress.”
The 12-time champions sit at number six on the table with 10 points, four behind leaders Onduparaka after seven games.
