Uganda: Kiprotich Physio to Handle Cranes

Uganda's Olympic Team Physio Dr. Michael Keb has joined the Uganda Cranes Initiative (UCI) to boost the national soccer team's chances at the ongoing CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup.

Keb, who handled Gold medalist Stephen Kiprotich at the Olympics, joined the UCI on Monday, and immediately pledged to transform the Cranes.

"I today linked with coach Bobby Williamson and team doctor Ronald Kisolo. They gave me the green light," he told the UCI at their weekly meeting.

" I have talked to all the players and assessed their needs. Before they go for their second match Tuesday, I will take them through all that is needed to make sure their muscles are relaxed for the tough game."

The Uganda Cranes initiative ( @ugcranes & http://www.facebook.com/UgCranes) was formed by a group of passionate fans just before the CECAFA tournament to help particularly to boost the national team's welfare, with focus on accomodation, feeding, kit and fans support.

All fans who contribute to the Cranes welfare become inaugural members of the UCI. Money is being received from individual fans via MobileMoney Number 0788162001.

Major corporate supporters so far include Vision Group, NSSF and Rivonia Suites, where the team is residing.
