Yanga’s departure date still unknown

YOUNG Africans long haul flight to Accra and then Sekondi to honour their CAF Confederation Cup return leg against Medeama, has not been made public

Yanga hosted the Ghanaian side in a match that ended in 1-1 draw at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam last Saturday.
The Tanzanian champions have not declared its reservations with regard to the long trip deep in West Africa, as the match is scheduled for July 26.

One of the Young Africans officials, who pleaded for anonymity, said the club has not reached a decision but it will come very soon.

Yanga who are at the base of the four-team group, have so far secured one point and as many goal after playing three matches, two of them at home.

The trip to Accra is lengthy with possible fatigue as the Tanzanian champions need to have some rest days ahead of the encounter.

Other teams in the Yanga group include Democratic Republic of Congo’s TP Mazembe and Algeria’s Moulodia Bejaia.
Yanga have been beaten by both Mazembe and the Algerian team to remain with only one option if they are to make it into the semi-finals, victory.

The Lubumbashi-based soccer giants are leading the group A with seven points while Algeria’s Mo Bejaia are runners-up with five points. Medeama are second from the bottom of the log with two points in three appearances.

Yanga are still looking for maiden win in the CAF-extended version of the quarterfinal series. Coach Hans van Pluijm is spending sleepless nights to realise the first win in the remaining three matches, one at home to Mo Bejaia.
