Ugandan interim coach Moses Basena says he wants to know his fate as the Cranes coach just before the upcoming 2018 CAF African Nations Championships.
The tournament for the local-based players will be staged in Morocco next year and the coach has urged the Federation of Ugandan Football Association to decide on his future.
To prove how much Basena has learnt from former coach, Milutin Sredojevic, he led the Cranes to qualifying for the CHAN tournament with a 3-2 aggregate win over Rwanda in August.

Despite that achievement, including a 1-0 win over Egypt at Namboole, Basena remains in charge as caretaker coach, something that is disconcerting him.
"I have so many ideas that I would want to implement to ensure that The Cranes improve. But to what end? I do not know how long I am going to be coach,” said Basena.
“So, that, inevitably, makes it difficult for me to plan, let alone lay strategy.
"From that, you can agree on the training methodologies and tactics against which a player should be nurtured, so that once he reaches The Cranes, he is ready to play, and does not need to be re-oriented afresh."
