KCCA FC head coach Mike Mutebi has praised teenage striker Opio Sunday after helping his side to beat Tooro United 1-0 in a Ugandan Premier League match last week.
Opio, who had previously featured against Bright Stars after coming on in the second half, scored his debut goal in their much-needed victory against Tooro United which helped them reduce the lead against table-toppers Vipers SC to just four points.
Mutebi who is known for nurturing young talents believes that the youngster has a bright future due to his talent.
“Opio Sunday has all that it takes to be a star at KCCA FC,” Mutebi said before adding.
“We have been with this boy for two years now and he has displayed some quality and good technique. He can only become better.”
“He came into the team and immediately made an impact against a stubborn Tooro side. He is still playing with our junior side but we shall also use him in some UPL games for the senior side.”
“Just like Allan Okello, Mustafa Kizza and others, Opio Sunday and other youngsters can go down that lane.”
“He has been through our development side and knows the ethos and values of this club. He has been nurtured to fit in the system and our philosophy,” he added.
Opio Sunday joined KCCA FC in 2018 and is a student at Masaka Senior Seconday School in his senior four vacation.
Mutebi also insisted that as a club, they will stick on developing young talents into big stars.
“We shall insist on grooming these players and grooming them into becoming Champions and also to believe that they are extremely talented players, if they can stay grounded and loyal to the process, the sky is the limit for them,” he noted.
