Every commander has a trusted soldier who he will rely on no matter what, it doesn’t matter whether that soldier delivers when it matters most or not, the commander will keep him close.
It’s the same relationship Uganda Cranes coach has with Patrick Kaddu who he has trusted with the responsibility of leading the country’s front line at the big stage.
The KCCA FC man starting for Cranes has come with a number a criticism in different corners but Desabre has maintained his foot on the ground.
Kaddu returned that favour in Cranes opening game at the 2019 Total Africa Cup of Nations in the 2-0 win over DR Congo on Saturday at the Cairo International and he prefers to give to the team and not his commander.
“In football, the aspect of teamwork comes first, then we can talk of individual contributions,” Kaddu told www.football-256.com before adding.
“As a person, I knew I would score to help my country win. we played the game as a team and this collective effort made us win.”
“We are looking upon the next game at hand and the rest of the matches, it is good to score and scoring for the national team. it is always a pleasure and I do it for the rest of the teammates,” Kaddu added.
Cranes top Group A on three points, just a goal better than Egypt who defeated Zimbabwe 1-0 on Friday, the latter is Uganda’s next opponent on June 26th.
