Yanga name new captain


Young Africans have named Ghanaian defender Lamine Moro as the club’s new captain.

The former Sekondi Hasacas, WAFA and Liberty Professionals player will be assisted by Bakari Mwamnyeto and striker Mukoko Tonombe.

“We have picked Lamine [Moro] as our captain for the rest of the season,” Yanga confirmed on their social media pages. “He will be assisted by defender Mwamnyeto as his first assistant and Tonombe as the second assistant.”

This comes after the exit of Papy Tshishimbi at the start of the new season

Yanga were yet to name a permanent captain since the departure of Tshishimbi, who was among the 14 players released by the Jangwani-based club at the end of last season after the team failed to win silverware.

Yanga have enjoyed a good start to the campaign as they have won four matches and drawn one from the five played so far.
