Uganda Cranes head coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic, reportedly turned down an offer by Botswana for a National Coach job.

The Serbian admitted that he was contacted by Botswana Football Association(BFA) but couldn’t give up his current role with the Uganda Cranes as head coach. “Yes they have been interested in me and we have been in contact, but I cannot let down Uganda that I am so attached to and have a running contract,” Micho told

There had been earlier claims from Botswana’s capital Gabarore about Micho’s possible acceptance of the new job, which claims Micho denied. “That is impossible because I am already committed to my current job with the Cranes,” said Micho.

Micho who was sacked by Rwanda in April last year, was appointed the Uganda Cranes coach, having emerged the best from a total of 37 applicants who were vying for the post.  He  has guided the Uganda Cranes to 3rd position of Group B of the ongoing Africa National Championship (CHAN) in South Africa.

He also steered Cranes to quarterfinals of the 2013 CECAFA Championship, a tournament that was won by hosts, Kenya. His biggest achievement with Amavubi of Rwanda was a runners-up spot at the 2011 Cecafa Senior Challenge, the East and Central African regional Championship.
