WINDHOEK, 13 MAR (NAMPA) - The University of Namibia (Unam) Football Club (FC) have warned log leaders African Stars that they will expose their weakness come Sunday.
The two teams face off in a Namibia Premier League encounter at the university's sports field at 17h00.
“We have seen Stars play a couple of times, and we have discovered that they are slow in pace, and we will use that against them come Sunday,” said Unam coach Marcelo Wakudumo.
He told Nampa on Thursday that playing a big team like Stars requires mental as well as physical preparation, and they are prepared.
Stars have 49 points from 21 matches, with Tigers in second place on 38 points.
Tura Magic, Blue Waters and Black Africa (BA) share third position on 37 points, but BA have two matches in hand after their earlier matches against Mighty Gunners and Orlando Pirates were rained out.
Benfica remains at the bottom of the log on seven points, with Touch & Go second last on 13 points and Rebels third last on 16 points.
Meanwhile, BA's head coach Ronnie Kanalelo told this news agency on Thursday said his team have changed a few things in their structure as they take on Tura Magic also on Sunday at 15h00 at the same field.
“The game is in our hands to close the gap between us and Stars, and we have prepared well for this game,” he said.
