Uganda Cranes’ coach Sebastien Desabre has defended his record with the national team despite a tough start compounded by a loss with against Niger.
Desabre who took over the Cranes top job in December has picked one win in 9 games but only three have been competitive matches.
“People have not seen the matches and only interpret the results,” Desabre started in a long post on his official Facebook Page. “It is normal, it is the meditative world of football,” he adds before he offers what he and the technical staff think about the matches so far.
We, the technical staff, we think differently on the friendly matches, we think about the development of our game, to try new players (including two players of 20 years were holders against the Niger) we took voluntarily risks in the game for put the players in trouble, and they behaved well.

I regret the goals we have taken against Niger because none was valid but we must prepare to live yet to live kind of adventure at away.
During these months, we have been able to prepare the reception of the next official matches and we are confident and we will be ready.
Desabre’s critics including his predecessor Mulitin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic have pointed at lack of an entertaining playing style as promised but also failure to pick results.
