YOUNG Africans President Hersi Said has attributed the club’s recent success to strong unity among members, management, fans and players.
Speaking in Dar es Salaam recently, Hersi reiterated that the solidarity in the club has played a big role in making the team perform well in the continental level competitions.
“Now, we are at the top of the Premier League table with 8 points clear, we have managed to enter into the quarterfinals of Azam Sports Federation Cup (ASFC) and CAF Confederation Cup (CAF CC).
“All these have been made possible due to unity and cooperation we cherish as a club and it is my hope that we will continue to work together in of pushing our club further,” he said.
Commenting on their last match of the Confederation Cup against TP Mazembe, Hersi reiterated that their objective is to win in order to wind up their group D campaign on top of the pile.
“We want to finish group stage mission at the summit of the table so that we can be paired against runner up in the quarterfinals as such; doing well against TP Mazembe will be good to us,” he said.
He also pointed out that good measures have been put in place to facilitate Yanga members and fans who want to travel to Lubumbashi to cheer their team in the game on April 2nd this year.
Meanwhile, Yanga players who were not called for national duties for their respective countries have resumed training sessions ahead of TP Mazembe duel.
However, as it stands in group D, the Jangwani Street giants sit at the top of the table with 10 points similar to the second-placed US Monastir as the two teams are only separated by goal difference.
Yanga have pumped in 8 goals from five matches while US have scored 6 goals in five encounters hence the former takes command of the group.
On third place are Real Bamako with 5 points while TP Mazembe are rooted at the base with 3 points from five-game outings and undoubtedly, it has been a thorny run for them in the contest.
To make it worse, Mazembe have conceded more goals in the group (9) and have converted 5 goals.
