KCCA manager Mike Mutebi has heaped praise on Botswana’s Township Rollers ahead of the two sides’ CAF Champions League clash and admits respect.

Mutebi revealed this while in a pre-match press conference in Gaborone ahead of the debut game for the two sides at this stage of the competition.

“I am very excited with the type of football they play,” said Mutebi. “They are an attacking team which scores home and away like they did in Tanzania and everywhere they go,” he added.

In my opinion, these are teams we want to play. I don’t want to face teams that park the bus, teams that make things difficult.

Respect and humble

Asked which kind of outcome he expects at the end of the day, Mutebi says KCCA must be humble and give due respect to ‘very good’ Township Rollers.

“We have come here to play some good football and get a good result. We can’t be disrespectful to Township Rollers, they are at home,” he said before he added.

Of coach every coach comes wanting to win but we must be humble also to know we are playing a very good side at they are at home.

Of recent, the KCCA gaffer has always mentioned match officials before games and he did hint at same.

The bottom line is we are not going to play football with our mouths but exemplify it on the field of play. If the atmosphere is okay, the officiating is right; the pitch is okay we expect a good result.

KCCA played a tough game against Express on Tuesday and arrived in Gaborone in the evening of Wednesday but Mutebi doesn’t think his boys are fatigued.

There is no fatigue. And we shall not use this as excuse in case we lost.

The Ugandan champions are in group A that also has giants Al Ahly (Egypt) and Esperance (Tunisia).
