The Burundian export suffered head injuries during the league match against URA FC on Tuesday at the Arena of Visions, Ndejje, before being taken into the hospital. The Venoms won 3-1 and were getting closer to winning.
According to the official announcement of the club, Mutombora “has put paid to his 2021/22 campaign after scans showed he suffered a zygomatic bone fracture.”
The head coach, Robertinho Oliviera, told Viper’s media that “Mutombora is, unfortunately, going to be absent until the next season.” This is a huge blow to the player and us. He’s been amazing. “
The goalkeeper was not available for this Saturday’s StarTimes Uganda Premier League clash of giants with KCCA FC and will be absent for the remaining six games.
He is expected to miss the games against Gaddafi, Express, Onduparaka, Wakiso Giants, SC Villa, Police FC, and the Stanbic Uganda Cup competition starting in the quarterfinals.
Mutombora has joined other long-term injury concerns with right-back Paul Willa and winger Ibrahim Orit, who were also absent, and are unlikely to be back until next season.
