After the Cranes team dropping out of the CHAN tournament with one point from three games played, the players’ focus now shifts to the Azam Uganda Premier League.
The Cranes players returned from another underwhelming CHAN tournament on Tuesday to join their clubs ahead of the league, whose second round has been scheduled to kick off in a fortnight’s time, on February 10.
The UPL CEO Bernard Bainamani confirmed the development and the second round fixtures are expected to be released anytime now.
Sixteen time record champions, SC Villa still top the table with 32 points while defending champions KCCA are second with 29 points from fifteen matches played.
Coach Wasswa Bbosa’s Blues are looking for the club’s first league title since 2004 which was won by former Cranes coach, now the Orlando Pirates boss, Micho Sredojevic.
Masavu, Express and UPDF are at the bottom fighting relegation with 14, 11 and 10 points respectively.
The transfer window is still open for clubs to strengthen their squads and will end on January 31.
For the meantime, clubs will be involved in friendly matches to keep themselves in shape for the upcoming fixtures.
