Uganda coach urges players to forget about history



Uganda head coach, Mulitin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has charged his players urged his team to forget about the history ahead of the AFCON tie against Ghana.

The two countries face off again in a Group D opener at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Port Gentil in Gabon. The Serbian coach is yet to lose a game to the Black Stars since arriving as the coach of Uganda.

The Cranes fought all out to secure a point in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers at the Tamale Sports Stadium.

Uganda will be hoping to extend their unbeaten run against the Black Stars but their head coach has urged them to forget about the history.

“History will not play tomorrow against Ghana,” he said at a pre-match conference in Port Gentil.

“The past three matches against Ghana will not count tomorrow (Tuesday),” he emphasized.

Micho believes his Uganda side is prepared enough to leave a mark at the Gabon tournament in their return to the finals after a 39-year break.

“Ugandans have been dreaming to be here. The boys are ready. We have no experience at Afcon finals but we have planned for the tournament.

“These boys have big hearts to play against the giants,” he noted.

Ghana failed to beat Uganda at home when they recently met in a 2018 World Cup qualifier about three months.
