Africa Championship qualifier
Tanzania v Uganda, May 3
CRANES coach LASZLO Csaba has been forced to postpone teamâ€™s training camp due to the tight Super League schedule.
Virtually three quarters of the side the German intends to assemble in the Nations Championship tie against Tanzania next week will be involved in crucial league games today and tomorrow.
â€œIt does not make sense regrouping today. The league has always been a priority so we will have to wait. Sunday could be the likely date for us,â€ Csaba lamented.
Bunamwaya, SC Villa and KCC FC, with 14 first team players, engage Iganga, Express FC and Victors respectively today, while Dan Wagaluka and Musa Doka will be on club duty for URA against Boroboro tomorrow.
â€œThe problem is I am never consulted over certain issues. I presented my plan for the game to the federation (FUFA) but it seems to have been overlooked,â€ he added.
Csabaâ€™s relationship with the federation has deteriorated by the day. He was left furious early this month after FUFA overlooked him for the just-concluded coachesâ€™ workshop in Cairo, Egypt. The seminar that ended on April 23, was intended to review the past Nations Cup tournament and plan for the development of African football.
â€œThe reasons were that I would be busy with the national team. I wonder how, when the league is still ongoing. There is no reason why I didnâ€™t attend it,â€ he complained.
Meanwhile, Tanzania national team coach Marcio Maximo will name the squad to face the Cranes today.
The team will then start residential training on Monday in Mwanza, ready to face Uganda in the first round tie.
Maximo said the new squad to face the Cranes would be a mix of youth and experienced players.
Stars eliminated Harambee Stars of Kenya 2-1 on aggregate to book a ticket against Uganda who eliminated Eritrea.
