” I want to become the first manager to help BUL FC win this prestigious cup. This will be after beating the league champions Vipers in the final on Sunday” Isabirye said before adding;
” We have prepared well for this game for close to two weeks and
we are optimistic that we can secure a victory though it won’t be easy for us”
“But I have no pressure because I know anything can happen on Sunday so my players are very much ready for this game unlike last season ”
BUL beat Bundimasoli, Busoga United, Bright Stars, SC Villa and Booma FC en-route to the final.
Their opponents, Vipers are seeking for their first double in their history after winning their fifth SUPL title a few weeks ago.
