Nigeria Football Federation is looking at a possibility of recruiting Uganda Cranes coach Milutin “Micho” Sredojovic after former Super Eagles Coach, Sunday Oliseh quit the role of head coach less than a year since being appointed.
According to media, the federation is reported to have made a move to sign the tactician through their President Eng. Moses Magogo, with two years left on his contract with the Uganda Cranes.
“NFF approached FUFA for the services of Micho; they (NFF) wanted to meet him and Uganda officials in Zurich, Switzerland during the just concluded FIFA Special Congress, but the Coach didn’t travel,” a source told soka25east.
46 year-old Micho who has accomplished work with various clubs in South and Eastern Africa including; Orlando Pirates, Yanga SC, St.George, Villa SC and Al Hilal when contacted said he is focusing on tasks ahead rather than the possible move to the West African nation.
“I still have two years remaining on my contract; I want to see it through before I think about my next destination. For now I want to qualify Uganda to the AFCON 2017, starting with the next match against Burkna Faso,” Micho said.
