Sports Club Victoria University coach Morley Byekwaso has praised Daniel Isiagi’s steady improvement and good work rate as the player settles in at the club.
The team that won last season’s Uganda Cup trophy is preparing for a vital away CAF Confederation Cup first leg preliminary tie against CS Don Bosco of DR Congo on Saturday in Lubumbashi.
“He has showed great work rate and improvement since joining in the off season. He is a young boy who still has a lot to learn, but I like the rate at which he is developing with good height and lovely ball work,” Byekwaso told sources on Tuesday.
The 18-year-old forward, who completed Cambridge examinations at Kabojja School, has showed good form in the few build-up games he has featured in.
Byekwaso said Isiagi and other youthful players will be developed slowly so that they get stronger and gain experience.
Speaking about the weekend clash in DR Congo, Byekwaso has called upon his players to have belief ahead of the game.
“Confidence will be key going into that game and we need to be very cautious because we shall be away,” added the coach.
In a related development, CAF has appointed Kenyan officials to handle the CS Don Bosco-SC Victoria University game.
Referee Davies Ogenche Omweno will be the man in the centre of the pitch, while Peter Ssabatia and Gilbert Cheruiyot will be the assistants.
