KCCA FC were presented with a glorious opportunity to got top of the log but midfielder Saddam Juma squandered it when he failed to convert from 12 yards with the keeper at his mercy.
The tactician did not hide his feelings claiming that Sadam overlooked team protocol which dedicated that captain Awanyi would be the first option to take the penalty.
“We got a penalty that would have earned us points but a certain Sadam Juma who was playing poorly decided to take it. Our skipper Awanyi is the man responsible for taking our penalties but maybe he didn’t have the character and confidence to take it.”
” I am impressed with Lawrence Bukenya’s display because he has gone through our proper structures.”
“It becomes easy for such players to interprete things and that’s why I didn’t shout at him but I did at Sadam because we expect a lot from him and he has been around for sometime just that he lacks football education.”
Mutebi added that the result against Vipers puts them in a great position ahead of the continent engagements.
“I am disappointed that we didn’t get maximum points because we dominated everything just that we didn’t score goals but I think the results for both teams puts us in a great position for continent engagements.”
“It gives us confidence and I believe we gauged ourselves well though I believe we should have scooped all the three points.” added Mutebi.
Mike Mutebi’s beleaguered troops will next face off with woeful SC Villa on Tuesday 6th November at Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.
