Any coach in Roberto Oliviera’s current position would be spending sleepless nights on scouting reports about Vipers’ opponents in the CAF champions league group stage but not the Brazilian tactician.
Oliviera states that in as much as the sides are seasoned campaigners, Vipers are equally a good team and they’ll take it a game at a time.
“I am happy about our group, We have good opponents but Vipers SC now is a big club, we eliminated TP Mazembe” the soft spoken tactician chest thumped on the sidelines after being named the UPL manager for the month of November before adding that he likes big games.
“I like big games (read derbies) and I know these clubs because i worked in Tunisia for 12 years so i know Algerian and Moroccan clubs and i am certain we shall do our home work and be ready”.
Vipers SC who will be making their maiden appearance in the lucrative continental club showpiece are pooled in group C alongside Tanzanian giants Simba SC, Morocco’s Raja Casablanca and Horoya SC from Guinea.
