Ugandan champion, KCCA FC has received a major blow ahead of Caf Champions League preliminary first leg game against CNaPS Sports on Saturday.

The Uganda giants will miss the services of striker Patrick Kaddu in the opening match to be staged in Antananarivo, Madagascar.

The striker has been ruled out of the away fixture due to fatigue, just moments after he arrived in Madagascar, leaving coach Mike Mutembi with a lean squad to pick from.

KCCA Team Doctor, Ivan Ssewanyana confirmed the set back in an interview with the club’s media team.

“Kaddu is suffering from fatigue due to the travel made from Uganda to Madagascar. We have assessed him and advised the coaches to let him rest. He did not take part in the last training because we (the medical team) thought it was best for his health.

The striker who was set to make his continental debut for KCCA FC, scored six goals this season, four in the league and two in the Uganda Cup.

The game is set to kick off at 4.00 PM in Madagascar.
