Uganda Cranes head coach Jonathan McKinstry claims that as a team, they are disappointed with the postponement of the African Nations Championship (CHAN 2020) by CAF.
CAF announced the postponement of the tournament in Cameroon due to coronavirus fears which forced FUFA to also cancel Cranes’ preparation camp.
“Naturally, everyone is disappointed with the news the tournament has been postponed,” Jonathan McKinstry said before adding.
“I know everyone can agree on the reasons behind the correct decision which Caf and the government of Cameroon have reached,” Jonathan McKinstry added.
However, the 34-year-old tactician believes that the time he spent in the camp with his boys have been so important to the players’ development.
“We have been in the camp for the last 16 or 17 days and it has been valuable and the team is in a good position and shape.”
“The boys have worked incredibly hard in the last two and a half weeks, we have shown a lot of development and learning and we cannot have anything more than to be pleased with them,” Jonathan McKinstry noted.
The Northern Irish gaffer further said that they will keep an eye on the players to ensure that they remain fit.
“We shall keep monitoring the situation and know how we handle the situation.”
Uganda Cranes is pooled in group C alongside neighbors Rwanda, West African side Togo and reigning champions Morocco.
