As they prepare to face CAF Champions League tittle holders, Mamelodi Sundowns, on Friday night, Uganda's Kampala Capital City Authority has issued a warning shot.

KCCA coach Mike Mutebi says they are not scared of Pitso Mosimane's men as they meet in the first round of the club competition.

“Why should we fear?” Mutebi speaks to Kawowo.com.

“We have no fear. All we have to do is respect them because they are African champions.

“I am thinking about my players. What Okot (Denis) has to do, the abilities Majwega (Brian), the abilities Sserunkuuma (Geoffrey) has.


“I am not going to focus on the other team and we are not going to play football reacting to them. No, we are going to play our way.”

The manager further revealed that it will be important for his side to come back from Pretoria with a good result before the return leg in Kampala.

“It is important we score and you can only score when you attack,” adds the manager.

Chairman Julius Kabugo confirms that the team would travel on Tuesday and Mutebi revealed that he would travel with more players than he did for the game against Angolan side, Primeiro de Agosto, whom they beat 2-2 on aggregate.

The 2016 Coach of The Year also confirmed the winger Vicent Kayizzi and striker Robert Ssentongo, who missed the trip to Angola, would be part of the travelling contingent.
