Football coaches in Uganda have been advised to keep in practice at all times.
The call was made by the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) Chief Executive Officer, Edgar Watson on Friday at FUFA House, Mengo in Kampala.
Watson, a former Uganda Cranes skipper was officiating at the certificate hand over ceremony for over 40 local coaches who received their CAF A and B certificates.
It is better you keep in practice than staying redundant. Football service and development needs your expertise
Only three lady coaches were among the tacticians awarded with the certificates.
