Ahead of their CAF Champions League encounter against CNaPS Sport this weekend, Kampala Capital City Authority coach Mike Mutebi wants to attack the Madagascans.

Despite missing playmaker Muzamir Mutyaba who is out of the clash, Mutebi has decided to employ an attacking approach.

“Mutyaba’s absence won’t affect us so much because he has not been influential this season," Mutebi said.

"Allan Okello is back from academic duties and remember is the most creative player in the league and we also have Lawrence Bukenya.


“This team is better than last year’s team and there are more creative players. Last year, we used Geoffrey Sserunkuma’s experience to score goals.

“The young boys like Mustapha Kizza, Okello, Julius Poloto and Bukenya have grown to take on the mantle.”

Mutebi adds that his opponents play an attack-minded game influenced by French football and said he has watched them in action.

“I watched them play two matches, they are a team that want to play and are good at playing the French style of football,” adds the coach.

“We want teams that want to play. Last season Primero Agosto (Angola) gave us that and made us think. It will be good for us if they play, we are going to play attack because the best form of defence is attack.”
