KCCA FC Gaffer Mike Hillary Mutebi has stated that there is hope for the team to qualify for the 2nd final qualifier round of the CAF Champions League.
The Manager spoke to www.kccafc.co.ug and stated;
Of course, there is a lot of hope. We conceded soft goals because of carelessness and not because the opposition were better. Yes, they were at home and used their advantage well.
Overall view, the game was good. End to end stuff but jittery for the coaches. We shall be better in the return leg. We missed so many chances especially in the first half. We could have killed off the game with three goals in the opening 45 minutes.
Asked about his view on African Stars FC and how they play, the Gaffer had this to say;
They (African Stars) are a strong side. They have belief and you would see that when they conceded an own goal early in the 13th minute but kept the belief and bringing the game to us. They asked us questions that we failed to answer in the very appropriate way but we hope to correct our mistakes in the return leg.
We know they are going to come and play in the second leg. But ours is well cut out. If we can put away the chances we get then we can proceed to the next round.
KCCA FC lost 3-2 to African Stars FC in the first leg held in Namibia and will be hoping to overturn the result on Friday 23rd August 2019 at Startimes Stadium, Lugogo at 4pm in order to proceed to the final qualification round.
