KCCA FC head coach Morley Byekwaso anticipates a tough and competitive 2021/22 Uganda Premier League season.
He made the remarks after his side’s 1-0 victory against Busoga United on Wednesday in a league match played at the FUFA Technical centre in Njeru.
Sadat Anaku scored the all important goal on the day, to hand Byekwaso’s side a third consecutive victory in this new season.
“I have to thank the almighty God for the good game he has given us. Out of the three games this has been the best game, we possessed, attacked , created a lot of chances and all in all we won, am so grateful to my players,” Byekwaso told the pressmen.
Byekwaso trusted and named defender John Revita in the starting eleven, who was returning from a long term injury. However, Revita did not disappoint as he was comfortable throughout and impressive on the day.
And for the gaffer, he says Revita’s return is a big boost to his side.
“I thank him for helping the side build from the back, his return is really a big boost to the team.”
For the past two seasons, the Kasasiro Boys have not won any trophy since they last had one in the 2018-19 season. And for a club like KCCA, one has to put it mind that he is leading a team whose demand for excellence and results from the board and fans is well scripted.
The game against Busoga United saw Byekwaso’s side lack a clear cutting edge despite having most of the possession on the day.
And now, the gaffer says that fans should have it in mind that this season is not a walk in the park.
“Our fans and supporters must know that this season is very hard and competitive, there is no weak team, whoever you face you must come with a different approach. Once the team scores first, it’s hard to get back.
“So need to be very creative knowing what we want as KCCA but the past two games it was a bit hard, possessing the ball and aggression but we have kept on pushing and God has really answered us in today’s game.”
Victory ensured that KCCA move on top with six points after three games played, three points ahead of rival side Vipers SC who have played a game less.
Having had a bright Start, Byekwaso will be hoping that his side can keep the momentum and keep winning more games to fancy their chances of taking the League this season.
