Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) Football Club midfielder Sadam Ibrahim Juma has warned Vipers ahead of the Uganda Cup final slated on Saturday at the Emokori play ground in Bukedea.

In an exclusive interview with Kawowo Sports, Sadam terms the final as a match of a life time.

This is a match of life time. We are set to face Vipers because we know if we win, it will be consolation for losing the premier league. All the players are well aware of the demands for this match.

Sadam recently scored a stunning goal against record African champions, Al Ahly during their 2-0 win in the CAF Champions league at Mandela National Stadium.

He has the confidence that they (KCCA) have a slight advantage over Vipers coming to the match.

Finals are finals and every team gives their best. We are ready to give 101 percent because this a big match and important for us. We have a slight edge against Vipers if you look at our team.

Sadam is expected to be partnered with Isaac Kirabira and Julius Poloto in the middle of the pack against Moses Waiswa, Brian Nkuubi and company.
