John Revita didn’t only replace former KCCA FC skipper Timothy Awany, the defender who signed on a two year deal from Express will also be donning shirt five just like the club’s player of the last season.
Revita is likely to make his KCCA FC debut against Onduparaka on Friday, August 16th, 2019 in the Pilsner Super 8 semi-finals.
In a four-man defence, Mike Mutebi is likely to stick to throughout the season, Revita replaces Peter Magambo at the heart of defence where he will partner with Samuel Kato.
Mutebi, who is a big fan of Revita’s game approach will hope that the new man can be able to steer the team from defence and deliver the good.
“We must win the match against Onduparaka, it is disrespecting the opponent but we have an edge over them and we must prove it,” Mutebi said in the pre-match press conference on Thursday morning at Kati Kati.
“Onduparaka is a good team that has produced so many good players over the years like Shaban (Muhammed), Toha (Rashid) and Gadihno (Gadaffi) with a great coach in Livingstone Mbabazi. But, as KCCA, we have the ability to win against them” Mutebi added.
Onduparaka have never won against KCCA FC at Lugogo in a competitive game, conceding 12 goals in three games but we have won only once in six meetings.
“We have a good history against Onduparaka. it might be a disaster. We are KCCA FC and teams should be scared of facing us.”
We are better than Onduparaka and that is not a secret, we want our boys to be confident tomorrow and am sure they are well prepared and ready,” Mutebi added.
The winner of the tie will play against Vipers in the final, the Kitende defeated Mbarara City 4-3 on penalties after a one-all draw.
