Kampala Capital City Authority coach Mike Mutebi says their qualification to the CAF Champions League group stages is a turning point for the club.
Mutebi was elated by the club’s progress to the group stages, but more so with the way his side managed the game.
Muhammad Shaban scored the only goal of the tie two minutes after the break to earn the reigning Ugandan champions a 1-0 aggregate win over St. George of Ethiopia.
“The qualification is a turning point in the history of KCCA and Ugandan football as well,” he said.
“I always believed in this group of players and am proud of them.
“We suffered for the result as they (St. George) threw everything at us in the final quarter of the game but we learnt from the previous failures and our game management was first class.”
KCCA were drawn in Group A of the Champions League alongside Al Ahly, Esperance and Township Rollers.
