Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has acknowledged receipt of the letter of termination of contract from former Uganda Cranes’ head coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic.

In a statement published on their official web portal, FUFA also appreciates the tremendous work from the Serbian born national who guided Uganda Cranes back to AFCON after over 38 years.

The statement reads in part;

FUFA is in receipt of a letter from Mr. Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic terminating his services as Uganda Cranes coach.

FUFA would like to thank Mr. Sredojevic for the services rendered to the Uganda Cranes during his time as coach of the National team especially when he guided the country to the AFCON finals in Gabon for the first time since 1978.

Ugandans will forever keep those memories with them.

Micho held a press conference on Saturday morning just a few hours after his return from Ethiopia where he had gone for a brief holiday with the family.

The coach who took over the Uganda national football team in May 2013 cited contractual breaches where he is demanding close to 6 months without pay.

The former FC Palic defensive midfielder who hinted of seeking rehabilitation for a few days before deciding his next future step said;

I had no reason to resign but I have a million and one reasons for termination of contract.

Micho’s replacement

The public remains in shock after the decision taken by Micho despite constructive talks last week with the FA boss Moses Magogo, his two vice presidents and the CEO, Edgar Watson.

Similarily, there are wild guesses on who will take the job.

FUFA’s statement promises to reveal to the public who the successor will be;

FUFA will keep the public and members of the football family updated in due course on the way forward about the technical aspects of the Uganda Cranes.

FUFA wishes Micho the best in his future adventures.

It is Our Game, It is Our Country.

Micho has been linked for a return to South Africa’s PSL club, Orlando Pirates.
