The Jangwani giants have clarified that they have no plans to finish off the Angolan winger despite an injured campaign
The young Africans (Yanga SC) have come out to clarify that they have no plans to part with their new signing Carlos Carlinhos.
The Angolan star joined Yanga at the start of the 2020-21 season, but has struggled to reclaim his starting role as injuries leave him out of the starting team.
Despite starting well, getting three assists and two goals, Carlinhos was injured and even missed the derby against Simba SC.
His plight has kept Yanga fans guessing, while others feel the player should be able to leave.
However, the Jangwani giants, through Yanga Registration Committee Vice Chairman Hersi Said, have said that they still have plans with the player and that he will not be leaving anytime soon.
“Carlinhos is injured and has been injured for some time,” he said. Mwanaspoti quoted by Sokalabongo. “There was a time when he was given a break while receiving treatment and now he has started to practice slowly as instructed by the doctors.
“The club is monitoring everything and we have been told that it can be ready maybe from January, we are all waiting and it is not true that we want to fire him, this is still our player until his two-year contract expires.”
Yanga is currently in Mbeya preparing to start the second round of the continental Premier League with a clash against Tanzanian prisons at Nelson Mandela Stadium.
However, the team has suffered a severe blow after coach Cedric Kaze confirmed that three key players, Saidi Ntibazonkiza, Yacouba Sogne and Ditram Nchimbi, are hesitant to face the Prison Warders due to injuries and family problems.
“Both Ntibazonkiza and Yacouba were injured during Ihefu’s match while Nchimbi was allowed to go to resolve family issues, but we still have a space for the named injured players to see how they will respond to the final training session and then we will find out. whether to present them or not, “said Kaze Daily News.
Facing the prisons in Tanzania, Kaze said: “Every game is different and we are aware that the prisons in Tanzania are also a good team as they play as a team and have a coach with vast experience in the continental Premier League, but we have prepared ourselves according to the state of the game itself. “
Yanga will head into the first game of the second round still topping the league table with 43 points after 17 games, while Prisons is 11th in the table with 21 points accumulated after 17 starts.
