CAF Champions League

KCC v Al Merrikh

EL Merrikh arrived in Uganda ahead of the return leg of their CAF Champions League tie with KCCA confident of causing an upset at Namboole this weekend.

“KCCA have a better chance but we shall also try our best to overturn the result,” stated coach Michael Kruger shortly after the team arrived at Entebbe Airport.

“We are not here for sightseeing but football” the German tactician stated.

“It was a black Saturday. The entire team played badly. KCCA on the other hand played like a unit. They caught us cold on two counter attacks.”

El Merrikh coach Michael Kruger talks to members of the press at Entebbe Airport. 

KCCA stunned their Sudanese counterparts 2-0 in Khartoum on Saturday with goals from Tony Odur and Herman Wasswa.

The team was received at Entebbe airport by a team of officials from the Sudan embassy led by Deputy Ambassador Kamal Ali Osman. The team is staying at Hotel Africana.

Sudan's Deputy Ambassador to Uganda Kamal Ali Osman was on hand to welcome the team.
