Mbarara City FC head coach Brian Ssenyondo is dreaming of taking the Mbarara based club to continental football next season.
They will need to win the 2019/2020 Stanbic Uganda Cup if they are to seal the Caf Confederation Cup spot.
The Ankole Lions are yet to play their Round of 16 Stanbic Uganda Cup tie against nine-time winners SC Villa after the fixtures were suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“My aim is to play the Confederation Cup next season, whenever action returns, Brian Ssenyodo was quoted saying by Daily Monitor.
“We shall be focused on winning the Uganda Cup because the most likely position we can finish in the league is the top three.”
“SC Villa have an edge but we changed our style and I doubt they can beat us again. Of course, with Fufa covering travel expenses, we have no fears at all,” he added.
It should be noted that when Mbarara City visited SC Villa at Mandela National Stadium Namboole, the Jogoos found it easy to win the game 3-0.
Brian Ssenyondo was hired and fired before he returned at Mbarara City this season.
He is widely recognized as an enterprising coach who has transformed Mbarara’s football philosophy.
When he was fired at first, he had collected five points from five games only to be returned after 21 days as things went from bad to worse under coach Paul Nkata.
The winner of the Uganda Cup earns a direct ticket to represent the country in the Caf Confederation Cup with all travel expenses met by Fufa.
Mbarara City are currently seventh on the StarTimes Uganda Premier League table with 36 points from 25 games.
