However,Self Nicknamed tactical technical,Kampala University Coach is from Day one optimistic to go past this tie as he adds,
“if you want to win the trophy you have to defeat the best and so our focus for now is on getting a solid win in this first leg and then we take it from there,” says aggressive Vincent Tumusiime.
