PREMIER League giants Young Africans have announced to drop ten players from their squad for the coming league season, while revealing that goalkeeper Shabaan Kado will be loaned out.
The club has off loaded eight local players including veteran midfielder Godfrey Bonny, Idd Mbaga, Julius Mrope, Amur Hatif, Zuber Ubwa, Abuu Ubwa, Bakari Mbegu and Kigi Makasi who has crossed over to Mainland champions, Simba.
Others are foreign imports, Zambian striker Davies Mwape and Ghanaian Kenneth Asamoah, who have both reached an agreement with Yanga on their release.
As for Asamoah Yanga will pay compensation for terminating his contract which he signed last season. The 24-year joined Yanga from Serbian side FK Jagodina in 2010 but could not represent until the following season due to transfer hiccups. He scored a memorable winner against Simba in 2011 CECAFA Kagame Cup final.
He finished last season with 10 goals. The club has agreed a loan deal with Mtibwa Sugar for the former national team goalkeeper Shaaban Kado. Kado returns to Mtibwa Sugar, where he had been playing prior to joining Yanga during the 2011/12 season. Speaking in Dar es Salaam yesterday, Yanga Spokesperson Louis Sendeu said the club will on Friday submit the names of the players who have been dropped and those who had their contract renewed.
“We’re in the final processes and hopefully we’ll submit the list of players who have been dropped and those who have renewed their contracts,” Sendeu said. Yanga have already announced the signing of several players, among them JKT Ruvu midfielder Frank Domayo, former Philadelphia midfielder Nizar Khalfan, goalkeeper Ali Mustapha from Simba and young attacking midfielder Simon Msuva from Moro United.
Other players who expect to done on yellow-and green colours next seasons are Mtibwa Sugar duo of Said Bahanuzi and Juma Abdul and Simba’s dependable defender Kelvin Yondani as well as David Luhende, Ladislius Mbogo and Meddy Kagere. Yondani is, however, alleged to have also signed for Simba, which he represented last season.
Meanwhile, Yanga have lined up an international friendly match against Ugandan side Express FC scheduled for tomorrow at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam. Sendeu said the Ugandan team was expected to jet in last night with a contingent of 26 people, led by Express team manager Mahamoud Katelega. Express FC played against another Tanzanian side, Simba, last weekend at the Kambarage Stadium in Shinyanga region, in which the two sides settled for a 1-1 draw.
