KCCA FC coach Mike Mutebi targets UPL title ahead of the Thursday’s league kickoff against Bright Stars at Kavumba.
The gaffer has expressed readiness for the league, saying that his side has enough in the armoury to go far this new season.
Last season, KCCA FC who lost the title to Vipers, gave away five points against Bright Stars.
They drew at Lugogo before falling 2-1 on the road.
“Bright Stars has always given us a problem,” said Mutebi. “However, we have to do our best to overcome our first game.”
“We have prepared well, the players and technical staff have undergone Covid19 tests and the new lads have managed to fit in well and are eager to play not to warm the bench here.”
The new signings include Andrew Kawooya, Juma Balinya, Samson Kigozi, Brian Aheebwa, Bright Anukani, Denis Iguma among others.
The league will be played without fans after new Covid19 regulations issued out by the government on Sports Resumption.
“Its something we have to live with,” Mutebi said on the absence of fans. “When the government allows, we will be happy to have them back.”
“However, it may be a good thing to play without fans because there will not be pressure on the players.”
Mutebi says this is going to be a closely contested season after the good preparation of other opponents.
“All teams are going to compete, there is lots of strength at Express, URA and Vipers. People shouldn’t underestimate SC Villa because of their problems, they can build on that position last season. About eight clubs are capable of winning this title.”
