Khaled Yahia, the coach of Tunisian side Esperance has warned his boys not to take KCCA FC lightly when the two sides face off today in the return leg of the CAF Champions League Group game at Namboole.
“KCCA FC is a very dangerous team honestly speaking. They don’t have that capacity like of a big team in the CAF champion’s league but when you meet them on the pitch, tactically and technically, you can’t tell their style of play. You can’t predict what side they are attacking. I can tell you they can cause you problems anytime,” Yahia said.
Esperance pipped KCCA FC 3-2 in the first leg in Tunis in a game in which the home team stole victory from the jaws of the Kasasiro boys. KCCA FC had led 2-0 at half time.
KCCA FC are at the bottom of group A with three points while Esperance lead the group with seven points.
The Ugandan side must win to keep alive their hopes of advancing to the knockout stage.
Mike Mutebi, the KCCA FC coach, said they will give their all in today’s tie.
“We are going to play one of the biggest clubs in African football with a lot of history for us and we are going to play the way we play and win. We are not changing our identity. We are going to play entertaining football because we believe we may want the results but in the end the people come to watch some good football,” Mutebi said.
The game kicks off at 4.00 PM Ugandan time
