‘We have prepared well and I am glad to see arguably the best teams in the Final. The boys know each other very well and they are the best players in the Country right now. They have been close as you saw in the league.’
‘We have returned some of our players who were injured’
‘Poloto Julius is back but unfortunately Mustapha Kizza is out. The rest of the team players are fine. We are missing our striker Derrick Nsibambi but it is not going to affect our team because we are not a collection of Galacticals (stars), we don’t have special players except Allan Okello. We have Shaban Muhammad whose contribution through out the league has been very good’
‘The game will have special players in Bukedea, this time Allan Okello will not be substituted. Let’s forget about what happened in Kitende during the league. Okello will be in Bukedea to play the final’
