Yanga skipper, Nadir Haroub ‘Cannavaro’ has urged his team mates to forget about the Simba defeat and focus in their coming game against U.S.M Alger in the Caf Confederation Cup on May 6th.
Yanga squad is expected to board a plane on Thursday to Algeria ahead of their opening game of the group stage.
Speaking to Goal, ‘Cannavaro’ said that the defeat against Simba is a bitter pill to swallow but they have another important match ahead so it is better to forget the past and concentrate on the future.
“We have an important match ahead, we have to concentrate and forget about the last defeat against our rivals,” said Cannavaro.
Yanga were stunned 1-0 by Simba on Sunday in the Dar es Salaam derby. They start their Caf Confederation Cup group stage campaign away in Algeria before returning in Tanzania to host Rwanda’s Rayon Sport on May 16.
