Vipers SC head coach Fred Kajoba is confident that his team have whatever it takes to perform well in this edition of the Caf Champions League.
In the first preliminary round, the StarTimes Uganda Premier League champions have been drawn with Sudanese giants El Hilal.
According to the tactician, this is a good chance for the Venoms to perform well in the continental competition.
“It is another great opportunity to revive our fortunes in this competition,” Kajoba was quoted the club’s website.
“We have what it takes to get past our opponents because the team has been at this level before and we have been preparing for this for many months.”
“We have a good team and we believe that with determination and character, we shall get where we want to be,” he added.
The last time Vipers played an opponent from Sudan was in the 2018/19 season when they were paired with Al-Merrikh SC.
They lost 2-1 away before winning the second leg at home by a solitary goal.
Ndugwa scored the only goal that took the Venoms to the next phase of the competition.
However, they were eliminated by Algerian side CS Constantine in the second preliminary round.
