Vihiga Queen’s tactician Boniface Nyamunyamu has declared his side not capable of competing in the upcoming 2023 Cecafa matches.
He has reiterated that the club’s management must beef up the squad if they are to have any hopes of replenishing their 2021 Cecafa’s outing success.
The 2023 Cecafa tournament is slated to be held in Uganda from August this year. The Western-based club won the 2021’s edition- where they were unbeaten. This helped them earn a ticket to participate in that year’s CAF Champions League matches that were held in Egypt. They won a single match in the group stages.
However, the spine of that 2021 side departed for pastures new, and Nyamunyamu has made it clear they have to deep into the market before the tournament commences.
“The current squad is competitive but not good enough for the task awaiting the team,” Nyamunyamu boldly said.
“I have shared with the management about the caliber of players that we need. We have to strengthen the squad if we have to go deeper into the competition. I won’t be business as usual in Uganda because our rivals likely are plotting our downfall,” he added.
The four-time Kenya Women’s Premier League winners got a chance of participating in the Cecafa matches after winning the League title.
