“Opio [Sunday] has all it takes to be a star at KCCA,” Mutebi told the club’s official website. “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 [Okelo], 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.

“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.”

Sunday joined KCCA in 2018 and is a student at Masaka Senior Secondary School in his senior four vacations.
