Yanga strikers should be more clinical, says coach

YANGA head coach Zlatko Krmpotic has challenged his players to be more creative upfront by scoring more goals.

The coach said he has observed that his charges are not good on coordination and finishing and he is working on solving the problem.

Yanga have played three games in this season's Vodacom Premier League (VPL), confronting Prisons, Mbeya City FC and Kagera Sugar.

In the three games, Yanga have won two games and recorded draw in one. They have scored three goals and conceded one goal.

“We are playing well, in the three games we have played, we have created a lot of scoring chances but we are not scoring more goals, I'm working on coordination and finishing so that we can find a way to score more goals,” Krmpotic said.  

Yanga left yesterday for Morogoro and some of the outfit's players who have made the trip include Michael Sarpong, Yacouba Songne, Ditram Nchimbi, Deus Kaseke, Tuisila Kisinda, Haruna Niyonzima, Carlos Fernandes and Farid Musa.

The coach said he is confident his team will do well on Sunday during their Premier League game against Mtibwa Sugar.

Mtibwa Sugar head coach, Zubeir Katwila, warned Yanga not to treat his charges as underdogs, saying they are well prepared for the encounter.

“We are preparing well and let me warn our opponents that we will be ready for them on Sunday,” he said.

Mtibwa Sugar have also played three games, posting goalless draw against Ruvu Shooting, settling for 1-1 draw with the VPL defending champions Simba and edging Ihefu FC 1-0.
