Despite conceding three away goals against AS Otoho in the first leg playoff of the 2018/2019 Total CAF Confederation Cup, KCCA FC manager Mike Mutebi says it’s not over yet.
Mutebi looked on as his side conceded a 20th minute penalty when Beninese referee Adissa Abdul Raphiou Ligali pointed to the spot after Timothy Awany committed a foul in the forbidden area.
The penalty was converted by Moussa Yedan, two minutes later the same man got the KCCA FC defence on the wrong side of life again and doubled the hosts lead.
It was Kikasa Wamba who hit the last nail in the coffin with a 70th strike to put the result beyond reach for the Kasasiro Boys, Mike Mutebi insists it’s not over yet.
“It’s not over yet,” Mutebi said before revealing why the hosts came out on top. “They were just effective in the final third, we were not but we were not out played at all.”
“The chances they got, they used them and that’s the difference today, otherwise we need to go back home and prepare for the return leg adequately,” he added.
Time and again, Mutebi has been castigated for insisting on a similar style of play regardless of the opponent or where he is playing, especially on the continent.
“We didn’t come here to play a containing game, we were attacking, even when we go back home we have to play the same way but we shall be more effective with the chances we get because we know we shall get the chances” Mutebi added.
KCCA FC will need to score at least four goals without response for them to advance to the group stages of the 2018/2019 CAF Confederation Cup with a better goal difference.
