Mike Mutebi: We Must Stick To Our Principles

KCCA FC coach Mike Mutebi insists that he will not abandon “our way” playing style when they meet AS Kigali on Wednesday.

KCCA FC will play host to AS Kigali at St Mary’s Stadium Kitende in the second leg of the first round of the CAF Confederation Cup.

Despite trailing the first leg 2-0 which they lost by forfeiture after failure to raise the required number of players due to Covid19, Mutebi says that they will not adopt a desperate style.

“We are not going to change our playing style, we will continue playing ‘Our Way’ which has made us a little bit above the others,” Mutebi said.

KCCA FC will need to win by a three-goal margin to go through or 2-0 and force an extra time hurdle.

“We don’t want to play a little bit desperate, we want to play like we have been playing and see that we can score more goals, scoring an early goal will give the boys more confidence.

“We are not thinking about the past, our focus is to play a good game so that we can qualify. There is no science about qualifying, we have to score more and more if we are to reach the next level.

“We are going to work hard and I think we have enough in our armoury. We have every body available so its now our task.

“They (AS Kigali) got an advantage there because they didn’t play and got the three points. So its about us to try and win.”

Mutebi contracted Covid19 and missed the trip to Rwanda for the first leg but has since recovered and returned to prepare his side for the crucial tie.

Team Captain and goalkeeper Charles Lukwago, Denis Iguma, Brian Aheebwa and Keziron Kizito had missed the trip as well but are back to full training and will be expected to start.
