KCCA go through narrow defeat to determined Rollers – 2018 CAF Champions League

Kampala Funds City Authority (KCCA) FC commenced there in the 2018 CAF Champions League, Group A marketing campaign with a 1- defeat to Township Rollers at the National Stadium in Gaborone 

The win can take the Botswana giants to the leading of Group A standings following match day just one, even though Uganda’s KCCA are placed fourth on the table.

The Blues dominated the match from the start with Lemponye Tshireletso wanting perilous for the home aspect.

he skilful forward defeat 4 KCCA defenders just before forcing goalkeeper Tom Ikara into a very good save twelve minutes into the game.

Tshireletso then almost benefited from some miscommunication at the again concerning KCCA defenders and Ikara just before the 50 %-hour mark.

The shot-stopper came out speeding to very clear the ball and it strikes Tshireletso, but KCCA defender Ibrahima Kizza made an important goal-line clearance.

Nonetheless, Tshireletso was not to be denied in the 36th minute when he pounced on to a bad pass by the defence and he fired the previous Ikara to make it 1- to Rollers.

The momentum was with Rollers with half-time split approaching and it must have been 2- to the hosts 7 minutes just before the split.

Tshireletso unleashed an impressive shot which was spilt by Ikara and by some means Joel Mogotosi skipped the focus on from the rebound.

KCCA then contained Rollers right until the match referee Ferdinand Udoh from Nigeria the half-time whistle and the score were 1- to Rollers at the interval.

The Rubbish Collectors commenced the next-50 % very well and they came really near to levelling issues three minutes into the game.

Muhammad Shaban strikes the crossbar with Rollers shot-stopper Keagile Kgosipula very well-overwhelmed and Rollers managed to very clear their traces.

Nonetheless, Tshireletso continued to torment the Rubbish Collectors’ defence with his rate and ability.

The Botswana international was unlucky not to seize his brace when he pulled the result in from selection in the seventieth minute and the ball strike the woodwork with Ikara overwhelmed.

Nikola Kavazivoc, the Rollers coach, then made the decision to make a tactical adjust – pulling out attack-minded Motsholetsi Sikele and he launched keeping midfielder Gape Mohutsiwa

Mohutsiwa was deployed just in front of the Rollers defence as they appeared to consist of KCCA in the closing phases of the game.

This authorized KCCA to attack and they were awarded a free-kick in a promising area in stoppage time.

Nonetheless, Derrick Nsibambi’s work from the resultant free-kick was finger-tipped in excess of the crossbar by Kgosipula, who ensured that the game ended in a 1- win favour of Rollers.

Media reports in Uganda reveal that Kampala Capital City Authority will have to part ways with more than Ugx 100 million if they want to sign Muhammad Shaban.

The reigning league champions have already spent Ugx 50 million on the striker for signing-on fees, but are yet to reach an agreement with Onduparaka where he remains contracted.

GUINEA FIGHT BACK TO HOLD COSTA RICA

Shaban was unveiled by the Lugogo-based side three weeks ago based on a ruling from the FUFA Players’ status committee that gave leeway for him to join a club of his choice subject to agreement with Onduparaka, which KCCA hasn’t done yet.

Kawowo reports that KCCA made an offer of Ugx 20 million which the Caterpillars rejected and it’s now understood they want not less than Ugx 50 million for their former captain.

“KCCA disrespected us and we are ready to follow the matter to its logical conclusion,” club CEO Anthony Affeti is quoted in the Daily Monitor.

“The player might have got his Shs50m sign-on fee but we can’t allow him to move at Shs20m (which KCCA reportedly offered).

“If we can’t get over Shs50m from our best player who even featured at AFCON, then when will we get that chance?.”

As they prepare to defend their Ugandan Premier League crown, Kampala Capital City Authority coach Mike Mutebi says it will not be easy.

The KCCA manager was speaking to the media saying four clubs in SC Villa, Vipers SC, Uganda Revenue Authority and Express could challenge them for the title.

Although he says the four clubs can make their title defence aspirations difficult, he remains confident they will retain the title.

“Naming the four is your part,” said Mutebi to the Daily Mail website.

“All I know is that four other clubs will compete with us for the title. They have prepared well and also have good squads.

“But I have confidence in the squad at our disposal to retain the title. We have brought in at least 10 youngsters to push the existing players.

“We want to score goals and we have brought in the players for that.”

Kampala Capital City Authority coach, Mike Mutebi has revealed why striker Geoffrey Sserunkuma left the club and joined Zambian side Buildcon.

Tom Masiko also left and joined Vipers SC, but the coach has since revealed why the duo jumped the ship.

Media reports in Uganda reveal that the coach said the two players rejected offers by KCCA to sign new contracts at Lugogo.

Speaking to Kawowo Sports, Mutebi said the club never intended to let the two players leave.

“Geoffrey (Sserunkuma) and Masiko rejected our offers,” said Mutebi.

“We offered each two year deals with a settlement fee of USD 2800 (Ugx. 10 million) and an improved salary which they rejected.

“When I told Masiko about the deal, he never got back to me and all I heard later was that he had signed with Vipers. For Sserunkuma, he hesitated to sign just because he didn’t want the club to get any fee in case a club wanted to him.”

On the rest of departures, Mutebi confirmed the club had no interest in keeping either at Lugogo for the season ahead.

These include Ivan Ntege who has since moved to Botswana, Sulaimon Akinyemi (Buildcon, Zambia), Vincent Kayizzi, Lawrence Kasadha and Robert Ssentongo.

“The rest weren’t in our plans so we released them at no condition. Ntege, Vincente (Kayizzi), Akinyemi, Ssentongo and Kasadha were all released,” adds the manager.

Uganda’s KCCA have missed out on the quarterfinals of the CAF Confederation Cup after they were thrashed 4-0 by Club Africain in their final Group A match on Friday night.

The Tunisians won the group with a haul of 12 points and are joined in the last eight by fellow North Africans FUS Rabat of Morocco, who beat Rivers United 2-1 at home in a concurrent match to edge into second place ahead of KCCA.

Africain got off to a flying start and claimed the lead as early as the 11th minute through Saber Khalifa.

That set the tone for the remainder of the first half, as the Tunisians added goals in the 25th and 41st minutes through Mannoubi Haddad and Moataz Zemzemi to see themselves 3-0 up at the interval.

There was only one further goal in the match at the Olympic Stadium in Rades, with CA taking their foot off the pedal, at least until Haddad claimed his second with a strike in injury time at the end of the game to make it 4-0.

The Tunisians will face either MC Alger or compatriots CS Sfaxien in the last eight, with the final Group B standings to be decided on Saturday evening.

Club Africain and KCCA will battle for top spot in Group A of the CAF Confederation Cup when they meet at the Olympic Stadium in Rades on Friday night, kick-off at 21h00 CAT.

Both sides took major strides toward the quarterfinals with crucial victories last weekend: the Ugandan side defeated FUS Rabat 3-1 in Kampala, while Club Africain became the first team in the group to take any points on the road as they won 2-0 in Nigeria against Rivers United.

As a result the pair sit atop the pool with nine points each, holding a three point advantage over both United and FUS.

A draw in this match will see both CA and Kampala advance into the quarters, while even a defeat may not necessarily be terminal: for example, if Africain lost and Rivers won in the group’s other match, they would both finish on nine points, but the Tunisians hold a superior head-to-head record and would qualify regardless.

A cynical observer would imagine that the teams will have a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ to play out a draw and both progress, but given that the group winners will have the advantage of playing the second leg of their quarterfinal at home, the chances of the teams simply going through the motions are slim.

KCCA would end in first place if the game ended in a draw, while CA must win by two clear goals to win the group. The two teams advancing will face MC Alger and CS Sfaxien, who have already secured progression from Group B.

The other Group A match between FUS Rabat and Rivers United will be played at the same time in Morocco. Zambian referee Wellington Kaoma will officiate the game in Rades.
