Karisa makes honest assessment of Vipers humiliation in Morocco



Vipers SC captain Milton Karisa has for the first time since his team’s humbling defeat to Raja Casablanca in the CAF champions league group stages opening match made a reaction.

Uganda’s representatives were beaten 5-0 thanks to goals by Hamza Khabba, Jamal Harkass, Mohamed Zrida, Yousri Bouzouk and Roger Aholou which took them to the top of their group C.

” After a result like Friday’s I think the first 48 hours are about digesting what happened and being critical with your own performance, but after that you can ask some questions, sit together as a team and move forward from there.

“But you need to do that as a group, without any friction or individual finger pointing, because we are a team.

“One day you make a mistake, but the next time maybe you will win the game. If one of your team-mates makes a mistake, the next one has to step in to avoid that mistake costing us something.

“That’s the important thing about being a team, and that determines how good you can be.

“Everybody is upset with what happened on Friday, but we don’t need any extra motivation for a game as big as Saturday’s. We need to get up again, and I know we have the capability to do that.

The Venoms will next face Guinea’s Horoya who were 1-0 winners over Tanzania’s Simba.

The captain believes Vipers have the ability to bounce back and restore their hopes of progression.

“We have got a great chance to get this right. We know how important it is to win that game against Horoya.”

The two sides will face off at St. Mary’s stadium at Kitende on Saturday, 18th February.
