The Head Coach of Yanga, Tunisian, Nasreddine Nabi, has said that his players, Ghanaian Bernard Morrison and Congolese, Heritier Makambo, have special tactical and technical tasks in his squad.
He made the statement immediately after the Premier League game ended against Tanzania Police on Tuesday at the Sheikh Amri Abeid Stadium in Arusha region. Yanga won 2-1.
Speaking to Championi on Friday, Nabi said that he uses the players as 'Super Sub' whose job is to stop the opposing team's defenders and midfielders from going up.
Nabi said that he uses those players in the second half in the final minutes with the aim of tiring the defenders and midfielders of their opponents.
He added that he started using them in the Citizen's Week game that played against Vipers United of Uganda, Kariakoo Dabi and this one from Police, whose defenders and midfielders of the opposing team were behind many defending their goal.
"Our game against the Police was difficult due to the defenders and midfielders staying in the goal, many of them protecting their goal, especially in the second half.
"After seeing that things were getting difficult, I took the decision to bring in Makambo whose job was to prevent the opposing team's defenders and midfielders from coming to attack us and instead attack them.
"I also brought in Morrison who also increased the speed of the attack before scoring his assist that led to the second goal. Also, his entry made the opposing team's defenders to be under a lot of pressure due to his level," said Nabi.
