Uganda Won’t Be Easy -Otto Addo

Otto Addo


Returnee coach Otto Addo has described today’s international friendly against Uganda as a tall order.

The Black Stars are hoping to recover from the defeat to Nigeria last Friday when they engage Uganda in Marrakech.

But Addo has cautioned his side to step up their game to realise that goal.

Indeed, Addo appear set to use the game to hand opportunities to players who missed the match against the Super Eagles as Ghana prepare for June’s World Cup qualifiers.

He said after the game, “We have Uganda on Tuesday and the boys I think they played good, but if they think it will be an easy game, then they are wrong. Uganda is very, very good.

“I watched them a little bit before now, I have to go deeper. They have really, really good players, we have to have a good plan if we want to win this game. I don’t see us as favourites; it will be an even game.”

He added, “We have to rest now, I have to think about how we play, and maybe we need some fresh legs. For me, the most important thing is to get options and to get solutions for the upcoming games, so these friendly matches are very, very important for us to know how they play and how they can adapt and take it to the World Cup qualifiers in June.”
