Onyango: Uganda Needs A Foreign Coach

viagra geneva;”>The Cranes first choice goalkeeper, dosage who will miss Uganda’s next 2014 World Cup qualifier against Liberia in June because of suspension after accruing two yellow cards, said that a foreign coach is the only solution for Uganda football going forward.

The Cranes job fell vacant on April 8 after the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) sacked Scotsman Robert ‘Bobby’ Williamson.

Onyango said although there are coaches in Uganda who are good enough to handle the team, they cannot cope with the politics and the fact that some senior players cannot not give them all the respect.

“Most of the senior players know the strengths and weaknesses of the local coaches and therefore appointing a local coach to handle the national team would create more problems. We need a foreign coach who is totally new, with new ideas and philosophy,” said Onyango who has been the Cranes first choice goalkeeper for over five years now.

Although several foreign coaches are targeting the Cranes job, sources in the FA have said a local coach could be handled the job on temporary basis to see the team through the 2014 World Cup qualifiers and the CHAN qualifiers where they play Tanzania in the first round.

The local coaches who are in-line for the jobs include the two assistants who worked with Williamson Jackson Mayanja, Fred Kajoba, Sam Timbe and former Sofapaka in Kenya and Ugandan club SC Victoria trainer Sam Ssimbwa.

The foreign coaches who have their eyes on the Cranes job include; Nikola Kavazovic, Tom Sainfeit, Giuseppe Dossena and

The FA is however also targeting Zambian coach Herve Renard and Rwanda’s Milutin Sredejovic.
