The highly heated speculation surrounding the contract and commitment of Uganda Cranes head coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has been finally extinguished and put to rest.
The latest development coming from Mengo indicates that Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has renewed the contract of the Serbian tactician for another 2 years.
The head coach’s position has been a subject of contentious discussion on all forms of media platforms following the notification by Sudanese club, Al Hilal Omdurman that they had finalized with the signing of Micho as head coach.
FUFA and Micho however, remain tight lipped following the information linking to his renewed contract.
In an earlier interview with Kawowo Sports last week, Micho stressed that he is still Uganda Cranes coach.
I am a true professional and I will notify the public of my next step through an organized press conference. Al Hilal F.C picked interest simply because I had served them well but I still respect my contract with my current employers (FUFA)
Micho affirmed to Kawowo Sports on Thursday in an exclusive interview.
FUFA’s official mouth piece, Ahmed Hussein strictly declines to comment because of the confidentiality clause embedded withing the coach’s contract referring the author to an earlier statement released by the Federation highlighting the federation’s stand.
FUFA officials and Micho met earlier this week in a highly secretive meeting and one of the deliberations from the meeting held at FUFA House in Mengo was the continued plan of the federation with the coach in line with FUFA’s agenda of Cameroon 2019 project.
For breaking Al Hilal’s hearts, Micho stresses;
Look, I have nothing to do. There are always situations like these in life but we shall let you know about everything on an official forum. Personally, I love to serve Uganda and better still, there is a lot of unfinished business to accomplish.
Since bowing out of the All Africa Games qualifiers at the hands of Mozambique, a section of fans openly called for Micho’s sacking at Nakivubo stadium.
Micho, who signed a 2 year contract with FUFA in 2013 has since lined up a series of international friendly games for the Uganda Cranes with a Middle East tour lined up towards the end of April.
He openly asserts dedication and commitment is far much a treasure than money.
If it was money, I would not be working in Uganda. I have a lot of unfinished business for Uganda Cranes.
Micho has handled the national team in 35 international games registering 10 losses, 6 draws and 19 victories. Kawowo Sports will keep the ear on the ground for the latest upcoming developments.
