CAF Champions League

KCCA v El Merreikh on Saturday at 4pm

It was all smiles at KCCA Football Club Thursday as team members each got a $100 (sh246,500) boost for a job well done in Khartoum.

Kampala City Council Authority Executive Director Jennifer Musisi offered the money in appreciation of the team’s away CAF Champions League win over El Merreikh.

Musisi on a visit to KCCA’s camp at Namboole, also used the moment to not only thank the team for the other victories it has attained, but also wished them luck in tomorrow’s return leg.

“I will pray to God to give you strength and confidence,” she assured the team adding that if they could beat El Merreikh away 2-0, they should be able to get an even much bigger win at Namboole.

She assured the club of financial backing to whatever stage it gets in the continental race.

“My job is to release money. That’s why your salary is always on time. Football is amongst our priorities because of the good mileage it gives us.”

She assured the team that a club bus will soon be available. “There are final touches being made on it to ensure that it measures up to the status of champions.”
