CAF Confederation Cup elimination is a blessing in disguise for KCCA FC according to coach Mike Hilary Mutebi.

KCCA FC bundled out of Confederation Cup with a 4-1 aggregate loss to Algeria’s Paradou FC to miss out on group stages.

The gaffer described the club’s failed continental campaign as a disaster because they had raised the bar high for themselves in the past.

However, Mutebi belives that the elimination has also helped KCCA FC more space to focus on the league and forthcoming Uganda Cup.

The league’s defending champions are just three points adrift of relegation zone but have failed only seven games, five less than most of other teams

“Paradou was a better side,” Mutebi reflected. “We had our chances but failed to use them. I also have to say that the referee was not on our side. Many decisions went against us.”

“We have so many games in hand and I blame UPL for these unnecessary rescheduling but we are now back and we have to shift our attention to defending our title. We have enough time to focus on the league which we couldn’t do while in CAF competitions.

“My young players have also gained enough exposure and experience from these continent games and I believe that it has added a lot to their CV.”

Depleted KCCA Face Coach-less Police FC

KCCA will be without four players who are part of Uganda Cranes team to face North Eastern select side in a Regional tour game on Saturday.

The players are goalkeeper Charles Lukwago, John Revita, Nicholas Kasozi and Muzamir Mutyaba.

Mutebi revealed that his side requested UPL not to postpone this fixture as they have enough players to feature against Police FC.

Police FC on the other hand, will be without head coach Abdallah Mubiru who is an assistant to Jonathan Mckinstry.
