KAMPALA. Much has been said about the departure of Geoffrey Sserunkuma with the striker having left KCCA for Zambia’s Buildcon after scoring a league-high 21 goals last season.
While the club will obviously struggle to find a suitable replacement, Saturday’s Fufa Super Cup performance suggested the near future may not be as bad as many have suggested.
This is after the League and Cup holders easily brushed aside Big League side Paidha Black Angels 3-0 in a repeat of last season’s Uganda Cup final played at Wankulukuku on Saturday evening.
“The kids that we brought in to score goals have both scored and they are creating and missed so many chances,” Mutebi said after the game that acts as the domestic season opener.
Strikers Patrick Kaddu and Tito Okello both scored for KCCA in an utterly dominant first half performance against obliging opponents who on another day could have conceded twice as many goals.
First, former Maroons striker Kaddu tapped home after Allan Okello’s cross was connected by namesake Tito after 12 minutes. The latter then scored the third after good work from Paul Mucureezi in first half stoppage time.
“We have been searching for finishers and we got these kids in Kaddu, Tito Okello and Malangu so the challenge of scoring goals I think will be solved. “I am very pleased that we are going to score goals.
“The general performance has been good like I told you we have played 25 games,” a contented Mutebi said.
It is his team’s second goal, however, that had the 47-year-old excited when youngster Okello volleyed home a stunning 25-yard strike. “Of course Allan Okello is the best player in Uganda. No question about it,” an elated Mutebi said.
