Uganda Cranes coach, Laszlo Csaba, is in Edinburgh today for talks with Scottish side Hearts FC as the club edges nearer to appointing a new manager. The Scotsman newspaper reports that Csaba watched the Hearts squad train at Riccarton for the first time this morning. He was accompanied by Mindaugas Nikolicus, an official of Ukio Bankas Investment Group, which owns Hearts FC. Csaba has intimated a desire to leave his job as national coach of Uganda in order to pursue the Hearts vacancy. He held discussions with Nikolicius today and is now the leading candidate to become the club's new manager, provided contract terms and compensation for the Ugandan Football Federation can be agreed. Csaba, a former coach of Ferencvaros and Borussia Monchengladbach, is reportedly keen to return to club football after coaching the Uganda Cranes. He told sources in Kampala that he would be resigning with the intention of joining Hearts. Rogers Mulindwa, media officer of the Federation of Uganda Football Associations, said a search for a likely replacement for Csaba has already started in the background. He said FUFA cannot sit back until Csaba acts and the hunt is on now.
