Mulitin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic says he is still focused on the Uganda Cranes despite reports linking the gaffer to the Ghana Black Stars job.

The Ghana FA is likely to part ways with Avram Grant regardless of what happens at the Africa Cup of Nations where he has guided the team to the last eight of the competition in Gabon.

Grant’s contract expires next month and there are reports he has already confirmed departure from the job regardless of what happens in Gabon.

However, speaking in a post-match press conference after the loss to Egypt, Micho revealed he isn’t commenting on speculation.

“I will not comment on speculation,” he said.

The Serb nearly echoed same statement at the pre-match presser ahead of Mali clash insisting he is focused on Uganda as his contract still has more than a year left.

I have a contract until 2018. I am fully focused on the Uganda Cranes and FUFA are doing a good job with my contract.

FUFA president, Moses Magogo also revealed no interest to part with the former SC Villa, Orlando Pirates and St. George coach.

We still have a contract with him (Micho) and we are happy with what he has done so there is no need of changing.

Since he took over the Cranes job in May 2013, Micho has helped the team qualify for two CHAN editions (2014 & 2016) and also ended a 39 year wait for an appearance at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Uganda are out of the tournament in Gabon after successive losses to Ghana and Egypt and take on Mali in their last match on Wednesday in Oyem.
