KCCA FC coach Mike Mutebi has commended Uganda Premier League for taking a good initiative to award exceptional players.
 
The coach believes the idea has motivated players to work harder and at the same time improving the quality of football on and off the pitch.
 
"I want to appreciate the Uganda Premier league for this initiative, it indeed motivates these lads to work hard expecting something in return," Mutebi reasoned.
 
He added that the award is far better than the shs1m he received saying that he can share the money within a short time but the award can never be shared.

"This sh1m, I can share it with these lads here, but this award is permanent. In a country where we are still poor at record-keeping records, this can be used for memories," he added.

Mutebi made the remarks on Monday in Kampala, as he and Maroons FC striker Steven Mukwala were being awarded the Pilsner coach and player of the month of November respectively.

 
Mutebi beat Vipers SC's coach Edward Golola to win the monthly award, while Mukwala shined better than KCCA FC duo of Allan Okello and Sam Ssenyonjo.
 
Mutebi recorded seven wins and one loss whereas Golola registered four wins and one loss.
 
Mukwala, on the other hand, netted seven goals from four games, recorded two assists and won two man of the match accolades. Allan Okello scored four goals while Ssenyonjo had three goals and three assists.
 
Mutebi and Mukwala each received a cash prize of sh1m and an award courtesy of Pilsner lager.
