Tunisia’s Club Africain will arrive in Uganda on Saturday on a chartered flight ahead of a CAF Total Confederations Cup.
Club Africain who stopped Rivers United 3-1 on Sunday in their first group A match will face Uganda’s League champions KCCA FC on May 23rd at the Philip Omondi Stadium.
David Tamale, the KCCA FC chief Executive officer told MTNFootball.com on Friday that the Tunisian club communicated that they will arrive with 34 members on a chartered flight and reside at the Sheraton Hotel.
The Ugandan team who lost their opening match 3-0 away to FUS Rabat in Morocco on Sunday are hoping to get back to winning ways on their home ground. “We need to win games at home and we should start with the game against Club Africain,” said club coach Mike Hillary Mutebi.
KCCA FC will also welcome back first choice goalkeeper Benjamin Ochan and defender Denis Okot who missed the game in Morocco because of accumulated yellow cards.
But the club is yet to get clearance from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for newly recruited midfielder Saddam Ibrahim Juma. “We are still waiting for CAF to send us his license. But we are hopeful we shall get the clearance before the game on Tuesday,” said the club official Tamale.
