KIGALI, RWANDA – Proline open their account in the CECAFA Kagame Cup against APR today (Saturday), 07-06-2019.
Proline are the reigning FUFA Uganda Cup champions and received an invitation to take part in the tournament.
Speaking ahead of their first ever Kagame Cup, Proline head coach Shafic Bisaso says the players’ spirits are high and they have trained well to see that they defeat APR.
“All we want is to win and the players’ spirits are high so we are going to defeat APR regardless of having the home advantage.”
He also added that the weather is not favourable but all that want is to win their opener.
“The weather has not been favourable to us and we are getting used to it.”
Proline’s new signing and experienced defender Bernard Muwanga believes they can overcome the tough opponent (APR) because he has played against some of their players.
“Certain things are not that new especially to me who has played against most of the players and under some coaches, so it will not be hard for us.” Muwanga said.
Muwanga continued and said that Proline is well prepared and even though, they are new entrants they shouldn’t be undermined.
Proline will be without Saaka Mpima and Joseph Mandela who are nursing injuries but the rest are in good shape according to the head coach.
