mansfieldtown.net, 22nd March 2016
Stags' striker Adi Yussuf has travelled to a training camp with the Tanzanian national squad, but will be unable to play in any matches due to his suspension.
Manager Adam Murray revealed this morning that the former Oxford City man has joined his international team-mates in training for their upcoming international fixtures against Chad.
Murray said: “There’s an opportunity for him to see what it’s like; he'll join in with the lads, train with them and be involved in that environment. It’ll be a great experience for him - he’s come from non-league and he’s taken major steps over the last nine months.

“We’ve allowed him to go away and train. He can’t do anything with us, he obviously can’t play but he’s gone to get involved in their environment for the future. It’ll be a good learning curve for him.”

With him serving a five-game ban and unable to play for club or country, Stags boss Murray said Yussuf had gone for the experience.
“It’s his second call-up and, because he is suspended with us, it is a good opportunity for him to go and see what it’s like and join in with the lads, train with them and be involved in that environment,” explained Murray.

“It will be a great experience for him and a good part of his learning curve.
“He has come from non-League and taken major steps over the last nine months, so we have allowed him to go away and train.
“He can’t do anything with us, so he has gone to meet up with the group, though obviously he can’t play.”
