Cranes coach Sebastien Desabre is already looking into the future as the transition from his predecessor Micho Sredojevic continues.
The Frenchman will not be travelling with the team back to Kampala on Tuesday after the clash against Ivory Coast in Marrakech, Morocco a day earlier.
According to Daily Monitor’s reportage from Marrakech, where Uganda are based for the group matches of the 2018 African Nations Championship (Chan), he will instead fly to Europe for meetings with Portugal-based Kizito Luwagga and Farouk Miya of Belgiam’s Standard Liege.
It will be his first meeting with two of Uganda’s foremost attacking players as he seeks to establish their progress at club football while discussing his football philosophy.
Being an offensive-minded coach, it is of little surprise that he has opted to meet first two of the players he expects to internalize and integrate his adventurous approach.
Fufa are planning a series of friendlies after the game against Ivory Coast, which will help keep the national team engaged until the next round of 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, which resume in September with Uganda hosting Tanzania.
