CAF CL: Mutyaba out, Shaban to lead KCCA surge in Madagascar
KCCA FC has confirmed that midfielder, Muzamir Mutyaba, is not travelling with the team to Madagascar ahead of their Caf Champions league fixture against CNaPS.
Mutyaba was ruled out after developing a corn on his foot during training.
“Mutyaba will not be involved in active play for eleven days effective Monday 5th February. [after that period], we shall assess him after the period and see if he is ready to return,” KCCA FC team doctor Emma Tusubire told the club website.
