It's only a game: August 2003 Archives

Explaining where to kick the ball

Uganda: Günter Zittel, the German technical director, is organising a seminar on witchcraft for Uganda's football coaches. The move comes after the Ugandan national side blamed witchcraft for their recent defeat at the feet of Rwanda.

Zittel is currently negotiating the plan with National Council of Sports.
I realised there was need to teach coaches at all levels about tactics and soccer strategy. It is sad Cranes gave away the Nations Cup campaign to Rwanda, Zittel said, in reference to the game Uganda lost 1-0 at home against Rwanda after a fight over juju.
