Proline FC coach Shafic Bisaso, while addressing the media on Tuesday, confirmed that his side will take their CECAFA Kagame Cup campaign as a learning experience to fine tune the side for more future engagements.
Just like KCCA FC, Proline FC will take part in this year’s CECAFA Cup which is due on Saturday, July 6, 2019 in Rwanda.
The Stanbic Uganda Cup winners are in group C with Rwanda’s APR, Somalia’s Heegan and Zambia’s Green Buffaloes.
According to Bisaso, the club is also expected to use the tournament as a precursor for their continental engagement where the club is expected to represent the country in CAF Confederation Cup.
“This is good for us because we need to learn a lot of things as we are going into Africa and we are going to use this tournament as a preparation period to go to the next level and we are ready for the game.
“But as Proline we are going to compete not just to enjoy. It’s a big tournament for us and what we want for now is to see how we can go through the group stages and that will determine our next move in the tournament since we are expecting to play big teams so we have no fear and pressure because we are there on merit.”
Coach Bisaso also highlighted on new players signed by the club where he confirmed the likes of Bernard Muwanga from KCCA on a loan deal, Okiring Andrew from Police and Mukisa Yusuf who just returned to the team from SC Villa.
Bisaso believes that the new players will add more experience which the club needs off and on the pitch since the club is going to play at the continent.
