Uganda: Observer Locker - Can Dunga Really Take On the Cranes Job?

News that former Brazil captain Carlos Dunga wants to coach The Cranes divided junkies to the point of a few nasty exchanges. Mwesigwa: I'm not about to have any interest in that story because it's a hoax.

Nsimbe: But would Dunga even want to coach The Cranes?

Tash: Whoever spread those rumours must have been high on Viagra.

Angumya: But people, we can't even afford the man. Does he even speak English?

Sebugwawo: That's not all. We even have no national team to coach.

Lumu: Funny how Ugandans are quick to dismiss such a golden opportunity. There is nothing impossible in football.

Mutaizibwa: Dunga would be a good prospect because he is a former World Champion. But I don't think the story is true.

Talemwa: For me I just think Ugandans never stop dreaming.

Mutaizibwa: If we could, he would be a good choice. But more importantly, we need to have the right Fufa administration and talent in place.

Kyeyune: For me I just find that rumour laughable.

Nsimbe: But I hear the guy applied. He must know how much we can pay.

Eupal: The $10,000 is peanuts for a guy of his status.

Mugalu: It may not be about the money but a way for Dunga to raise his coaching profile. Who would have imagined Berti Vogts coaching Azerbaijan?

Lumu: The only problem is that he would have to come with a full team of assistants and interpreters that Uganda cannot afford.

Mbanga: But anyway, instead of this Dunga guy, can't Jackson Mayanja coach The Cranes?

Nsimbe: He doesn't have the personality.

Mugalu: To borrow Aldrine Nsubuga's meaningless catchphrase; Mayanja lacks pedigree.

Kakaire: This Dunga talk is a real joke if you ask me.

Mulumba: But who needs Dunga anyway? What is his claim to fame as a coach?

Ssekika: To be sincere, I have never even heard of that Dunga guy.

Kabuye: Wamma fill me in guys...you mean after messing up boxing and UOC, Ddungu now wants to coach Uganda?

Lumu: Excuse us guys. Who invited these two midgets when they know nothing? Take away your petty talk and idleness...

Ssekika: But really why does Lumu have to harass us?

Eupal: Because you involve yourself in a debate when you are totally green. It's like Katende Malibu discussing football ethics.

Mulumba: Haha...you can also say it is like Maroons claiming to have won the Super League title by playing in the Corporate League. Simply laughable.

Ssekika: If your brains are shallow, keep quiet.

Mulumba: Hold me before I teach this joker a kickboxing lesson.

Musasizi: Eh..it is getting heated.

Kitatta: Please Ssekika put down my chair...if you can't be a man, leave us in peace.

Lumu: At this rate, we need a regular locker-room. Anyone?

Nsimbe: Definitely.

Mugalu: Seconded.
