Former Uganda Cranes coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has denied rejecting Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA)’s double salary offer, instead reasoning it’s ridiculousness in the wake of his departure from the national team.
Sredojevic who cited non payment of salaries to the tune of $54,000 confirmed the termination of the employment contract with FUFA on Saturday, 29th July 2017 during a fully packed press conference held at Pine Hotel, Kabira Country Club in Kampala.
FUFA President Moses Magogo later on Monday, in the football governing body’s press conference, revealed that the tactician had rejected an offer to double his salary but Micho has hit back, rubbishing the assertions.
He wrote on his twitter page: “Never rejected double salary offer but would be biggest moron on this planet if I accepted promise of double yet even single was never paid.”

FUFA nevertheless have since admitted irregularities in the salary scandal and President Magogo on behalf of the body pledged to pay the outstanding debt ($54,000) owed to Micho given the systematic cash flow they had agreed on with the Serbian in an earlier meeting.
It is still speculation that Micho could join Orlando Pirates following his four year spell with Cranes though reports in South Africa indicate Pirates coach Kjell Jonevret is still coy over his future at the club.
The former SC Villa coach is reportedly thought to have turned down Egyptian giants Zamalek despite huge interest from the former African champions.
