After his appointment as Uganda national team coach, Sebastien Desabre says it is a great moment for him to lead the Cranes.

The French coach says he feels ready to face the challenges ahead of him in his new job.

Desabre was in charge of Egyptian Premier League giants, Al Ismailly, and revealed he enjoyed his coaching in many countries in Africa.

“I needed to take this step at some point and I think it’s a strong choice for me. It is a great moment for me to take charge of a National team that has potential because in this case Uganda Cranes has a nice and promising project," he told FUFA.

“I feel ready to start given my experience.

“I enjoyed life in Ivory Coast, Angola and Cameroon. These countries have very many things in common with Uganda.

“FUFA has done a good job and consequently the team has performed very well in the past few years. My choice to come to Uganda was an easy one simply because the team has very great potential.

“First I am going to try to understand the functioning and organisation of FUFA, local football as a whole and see how well I can implement my philosophy and methodology of the game.”
